More than a handful of cool covers
This compilation definitely has some really good covers particularly, "Self Control" by The Bloodsugars and "Tainted Love" by My Brightest Diamond. "Self Control" sounds like an original because it's got that dance pop vibe that TBS are known for. Max Vernon's version of "I Kissed A Girl" starts off with a classical piano-esque intro and then eventually progresses into a synth pop rendition that more resembles the original. It's definitely one of the most clever covers on the compilation. But the Bloodsugars put the cherry on top of the cake with the Bonus Track "Lady in Red" originally by Chris de Burgh. TBS' lead singer has a soft smooth voice which really makes this old song something new. There are few misses on the album such as "Can't Tell Me Nothing" by Francis and The Lights and "We Didn't Start The Fire" by The Forms, but the gems on this album by far outshine the duds.
"Tainted Love", "Africa", and " It's a Beautiful Life" are amazing! Really great covers of great songs (No one should feel guilty for liking any of these tunes... they are all excellent)
"I Kissed a Girl" and "It's a Beautiful Life" are really great. Can't wait to hear more from Max Vernon.
