Tribute albums are always a mess of carbon copies of the original and hugely unrecognizable reworkings all of which can occasionally be quite interesting.
With Faith No More almost always kicking ass at covering other people's songs, I was eager to hear what others would do with their songs on the 2002 tribute album, Tribute Of The Year. With the exception of Tub Ring, Bile and Hate Dept., I wasn't really familiar with any of the other independent acts featured here. Sadly most of the 2 disc set is an awful jumble of crap sloppily thrown together that at times seems more like a lazy insult than a proper tribute.
The dust will collect nicely on this one.
1 too many copies of the same song out of 5
