It's Not The Original...
If anyone clicked on the Dead Bands Party, then either you clicked it by mistake, or you actually liked Oingo Boingo. and anyone who went to the reviews to rate mine, is NOT here by mistake, strangely enough. Fans of Oingo Boingo have an.. interesting feel for music. Oingo Boingo was always a band you had to of had some type of weird taste for, or be open minded. The reason people are rating this so low is because it isnt the original, but 'Original' kind of contradicts 'Tribute', so lets be open minded about all of this, shall we? The bands chosen for the tribute were definitely worthy of it. Weird bands like The Matches (with) Zebrahead , The Aquabats, and Reel Big Fish definitely show off the Oingo Boingo flare. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit disapointed with the Weird Science revision, its not that Hellogoodbye didnt do a good job, its just that it seems like that song would be better suited for a band like The Matches. And speaking of which, the only song on here that i think was BETTER that the original was Violent Love. Kudos to Zebrahead and The Matches -Jamie
Not the originals, get over it.
Of COURSE these songs aren't going to sound like the originals. It's a TRIBUTE album, not a full on cover album. I, for one, love the approach to these songs and think that the artists behind them did an excellent job putting their own spin on Boingo staples. Go buy a "best of" album if you want "the originals".
OK but orignals better
Most sound like Danny Elfman want to be's, but there are a couple of great remakes like Dead Man's Party, and Not My Slave (Awsome!) by Jessica Burgman (Who?) Are the best of the collection. The others you might as well have the orignals.
