HASH(0x92064210) étoiles sur 5 A Fair Tribute to John Lennon 1 août 2000
Par J. GENIO - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I remember a televised tribute to John Lennon in the 1980's. During this tribute, Lenny Kravitz did a fantastic cover of John's Cold Turkey. Cyndi Lauper did a remarkable rendition of working class hero. These artists captured John's soul in their rendition of his work. Having this show in the back of my mind, I believed that I would get the same from this CD. With some exceptions, I did not.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers do an admirable job covering John's "I Found Out," using Lennon's / Phil Spector's "wall of sound" technique as well. "Blues Traveler" does an interesting cover of "Imagine" using guitars and organ music. Their rendition of "Imagine" has a simplicity that John would truly appreciate. "Grow Old With Me" is a beautiful song; made even more so by the lovely voice of Mary Chapin Carpenter. George Clinton certainly captures John's depth and emotions on his rendition of "Mind Games." If John were alive today, he would truly be honored by these aforementioned covers of his work.
For the most part, the rest of this CD is "filler." Many of the remaining artists simply lack John's depth and perception. It is like Karaoke in a way: You get the words right, you mimic the artist; but, unfortunately, the karaoke singer cannot capture the artists soul. Basically, most of the remaining artists fail to capture John's intensity -- his soul. For this reason, this CD is only "fair."
With a little more work, I believe these artists would have been able to put together a truly remarkable tribute to the immortal John Lennon. Unfortunately, they fell a little short of the mark.
A fair tribute, indeed -- not the best; but, certainly not the worst.

HASH(0x920642a0) étoiles sur 5 Best cover album i've come across 1 février 2004
Par J. Fon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I got this disc at a used CD shop in town for six dollars, I wasn't expecting much, as most of the Lennon cover/tributes i've heard were pretty lacking. I was dead wrong. There is only one bad cover on this dics, every other is great!
Red Hot Chili Peppers/I Found Out - Slow, Angry, and funky. Something the peppers haven't ever done before and its cool to hear them do a song that doens't stick to their style. 3/5
Mad Season/I don't Wanna Be a Soldier - I never liked this song, but I think this cover is more enjoyable than to original (to me) Driving guitars and bass, and some really good vocals. 3/5
Candlebox/Steel and Glass - Awesome cover off the Walls and Bridges album. It's especially good because the guitar were buried by the string in the original, but Candlebox's cover features loud guitars and stand out bass. Cool guitar solo too 5/5
Blues Traveler/Imagine - Pretty standard in the beginning, with some cool bass fills, but after the first verse things get really blusey and some harmonica come in. Good rendition! 4/5
Screaming Trees/Working Class Hero - I always thought this was one of Lennons best, but the only cover i've heard was by Cyndi Lauper and it was awful (love cyndi though) The song starts out with just two guitars chiming with vocals, but it builds up and adds a cello and evtually drums and bass come in and give the song a lot of power, great cover. 5/5
The Minus 5/Power To The People - I head this song tacked on as a bonus track on "Plastic Ono Band" and this cover is millions of times better than the original, believe me. It is amazing Minus 5 were able to see the potential of this otherwise lackluster song, fuul of energy absolutely great. 4/5
The Magnificent Bastards/How Do you Sleep - Rockin cover. Performed with all the spite and malice of the original, featuring a cool guitar interlude. 4/5
Flaming Lips/Nobody Told Me - Amazing! recorded with cheap, super distorted guitars, it sounds perfect. Great drumming and basswork from the lips as usual. 5/5
Super 8/Well Well Well - Sounds just like the original, except for the extra loud guitars on the chorus and the awesome vocals (not to mention the solo!) 5/5
Cheap Trick/Cold Turkey - I don't like Cheap Trick, I don't like Cold Turkey, I don't like this version. Weakest cover on the disc 2/5
Collective Sound/Jealous Guy - Acoustic guitar instead of piano doing th cords on this one, no stirngs either, really cool! The only reason I don't give this one a 5 is because Elliott Smith's cover of this song is ten times better. 4/5
Sponge/Isolation - The biggst suprise on this disc. Opens with a strat playing arpeggios with the vocals, sounding very sad and eerie, but then the chorus comes in with an explosion of power chords and drums. Best cover on the disc. 5/5
Toad The Wet Sprocket/Instant Karma - a very happy, clean sounding cover. Not much else to say, very enjoyable! 4/5
Mary Chapin Carpenter/Grow Old With Me - Very sparse mostly her and a piano. The sound is so lush and beautiful, and her vocals are outstanding. 5/5
George Clinton/Mind Games - here's something unexpected, George Clinton from the funk grou Parliment giving this song some soul. Clinton does a superb jop, lots of strings and guitars, and delight and a great way to end the album! 5/5

HASH(0x920646d8) étoiles sur 5 An excellent covers album.... 15 novembre 2005
Par P. Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I ordered this from Amazon.com since I'm in the UK and this title wasn't available from Amazon UK. It took about 2 weeks to arrive and was worth the wait. As other customers have said, as a rule Lennon/Beatles cover songs aren't much good at all but this CD is a notable exception.

I admit that my reason for buying this CD was initially due to the fact that I'm an Alice In Chains fan and their late lead singer Layne Staley appears with MadSeason, his side project alongside Alice In Chains. They perform 'I don't wanna be a soldier', a song which I never thought was one of Lennon's best.

This version though(I think) is better than the original, yet at the same time sounding quite authentic, as well as being unavailable on any other album.

There are other notable tracks apart from this one, such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers' version of 'I found out'.

This sounds a lot 'grungier'(for want of a better word lol) than most of their stuff, and works well, as do tracks like 'steel and glass' by Candlebox. 'Cold Turkey'Lennon's description of the nightmare of heroin addiction, is another good track. This track starts off deceptively quietly before getting heavier, even if it isn't as harrowing as the original.

So a good covers album then, one which I feel would be particularly interesting to fans of the individual artists here, since these tracks are as far as I know unavailable elsewhere.

HASH(0x92064a68) étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly enjoyable set of grunge-tinged covers. 12 février 2002
Par tom746 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I'm pretty shocked at the negative reviews above, but its kind of the nature of tribute albums. I really enjoy this CD-but I'm a big Beatles fan AND a fan of 1991-95 "Seattle Sound" type grunge. The latter part is important for enjoying this disc. "I Don't Want to be a Soldier" by Mad Season (with members of Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam) and "Working Class Hero" by Screaming Trees (another lesser known Seattle band) are the standouts, along with "I Found Out" and "Well Well Well". I thought these were excellent meldings of Lennon's awsome lyrics presented in an alternative rock format that might be more accessible to younger listeners. Then maybe they'll chase down the originals-and that's always a good thing.
There's a cohesiveness to the songs and artists. It doesn't feel forced or disjointed like the Led Zep Encomium disc (where you could just see the A&R guys doling out asssignments to the "hot" bands on the label). I play 75% of this disc when I dig it out. It's worth your time and $$$.

HASH(0x92064b88) étoiles sur 5 A bit disappointing 27 janvier 2002
Par D. Movahedpour - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
John Lennon's music was so intensely personal that it can be difficult for someone to convey his emotions in a cover version. Also, this album contains covers by several flash-in-the-pan groups who don't seem to have a clue what they are singing or why.
In the category of trying to re-create a personal song, there is 'How Do You Sleep?' performed here by The Magnificent Bastards. Although the lead singer sounds appropriately angry, what is he angry about? John Lennon was angry at Paul McCartney at the time he recorded the song, so that cannot be re-cycled. Another intense song of Lennon-angst, 'Well Well Well' gets a fairly good turn from Super 8, but nothing could match Lennon's misery on the original version. I was very disappointed with Cheap Trick's version of 'Cold Turkey' which is virtually unrecognizable and sounds like a pop tune rather than the painful tale of a man overcoming heroin addition.
There are very few highlights on the album, where the artists create their own version of the Lennon song, but keep true to the emotion of the original, without sacrificing their personal stamp. To me, the best versions on the album are 'Imagine' by Blues Traveler, which is very folky and mellow, but also very distinctive with John Popper's vocals. Collective Soul do a very good version of 'Jealous Guy' and Mary Chapin Carpenter's version of 'Grow Old With Me' is tender and memorable.
I wouldn't recommend buying this cd, since most of the versions are forgettable. It's not really worth it for the few good songs on the album.
