Glad you're aware of it ;). And of course I understand and respect that not everyone is so enthusiastic about 'em as I am, that's fair and cool :). Little off topic here, I'm to blame, sorry :P.

Jesse is a good singer, but they seem to have lost their attitude since Lizzy left.
also Aerosmith Honkin On Bobo, is a great cover album, it can be done

Finally got around to listening to "Reverse Tripped".

Wow... that was garbage!
I don;t think there was 1 song on there that i didn't flick the "f-fwd" button on.

The new vocals are waaaaay to generirc. With Lizzy the had originality, they had attitude, they were dirty, they were sleazy... but now, they can blend in with any other band that recorded a bgrade hair metal album back in 1991. I think they have made a bad move! I'm not saying the vocals we bad, but they have lost the vibe that VOJ has always been about.

One thing i really particularly didn't like is that they recorded the covers basically identical to the originals. I like when a band takes a cover and makes it their own, eg Starrats with "I'll Be There For You" (Bon Jovi) or "Dancin With Myself" (Billy Idol).

Maybe their originals will be better, but this album will never be listened to again.

I havent listened to the record because the song "fuck you" made me avoid the record haha^^

Its kind of sad with this band isnt it? I mean the Art of Telling Lies is an amazing record with this record they finnaly had strong songs.

I tell you honey it feels alright
to be another clog in the wrecking machine
wouldn't even cross my mind"

I think it was just a dumb idea for the band to debut Jesse on a album of covers, they should have done one of originals to try win the fans over before they went for cover songs, thats just my opinion anyway.

^ I agree with you Jesse, they should've recorded an album with original stuff at first.

I never really got why they did that either, I liked the oe of the covers I've heard, but introducing a new singer with a) old song and b) covers looked a bit unwise to me from the beginning on. :S
sad, because I really like Jesse, and he was awesome live.

Honestly, I think all the covers are terrible, it seems they took a turn for the worse when Lizzy left, when they release some new originals I will still check it out, but if that turns out poorly it might just be the final nail in the coffin for me.

I Dunnu bout that... The end of Last Carees/Green Hell is probably one of the worst covers ever done ;)

I think people should just avoid covering the (Danzig-era) Misfits, the material is too untouchable for that, in my opinion.

Anyway, that aside, even tho I usually couldn't care less about covers, especially cover albums, I think VoJ actuallya nice job with the Fuck You cover. But yeah, I don't think they'll ever, ever top the Lizzy material.

They look ridiculously generic now aswell...
