REALLY COOL, DIFFERENT

"This tribute is very cool. From Pennywise's speed-punk version of "Astro Zombies", to Shades Apart's traditional-sounding "20 Eyes", to Prong's dark interpretation of "London Dungeon", to Earth Crisis' extreme version of "Earth A.D.", this cd rocks! I'm not really sure how to feel about NoFx's cover of "Last Caress". One part sounds like Greenday, another reminds me of Sublime, and the end sounds like traditional Misfits. Snapcase's cover of "She" is pretty cool. It has extreme instrumentation, brutal vocals, but still stays punk. Deadguy's "Horror Business", Goldfinger's "Ghouls Night Out" and 108's "Death Comes Ripping" are also very good. If you are just into old school Misfits, and not into modern punk, this is probably not for you. If you like old and new school Misfits and modern punk, then you'll probably like it."

"Now I haven't heard the other Misfits tribute, Hell on Earth, but this one is really good. If you like old Misfits, have heard the songs, and like at least some of the bands on here, then this is definetly for you. What you have to remember when listening to this is that this is an album of cover songs. And the whole point of a band covering a song is so that they put their own unique spin on the song, not so they sound exactly the same as the other band's song. If they all sounded alike there would be no point to a cover song. As cover songs, these are all good. Snapcase puts She into a whole new perspective, Pennywise puts their punk into Astro Zombies. Prong is just outrageous with London Dungeon. Sick of it All makes All Hell Break Loose quite literally. Overall these songs put a great new twist on some of our favorite old Misfits songs. Misfits Forever!"
