An Idea that needs to be repeated and expanded
Both these MTV2 Album Cover albums reflect a great idea: have a newer band cover an album by a classic band in their same/similar genre. Dashboard's covers are ideal updates of the originals and Michael Stipe's version of Hands Down is great music. A great piece of Neostalgia. Now they just need to make more of them. (BEP doing Raising Hell? Garbage doing Parallel Lines?) Or live up to the tilte and have them actually cover the entire albums.
Idea = Good. Result = Bad.
While the idea of combining these two artists is a nice one, it's tough to get past the terrible live performance of Dashboard Confessional. There's no studio magic here to help. Download if you are a huge Dashboard fan and need everything of theirs. All others, especially REM fans, move on to something better.
an amazing collaboration
i didnt think it would ever happen...but two of my favorite bands performing together...both artists do an amazing homage to each others music...a great set..
