HELLOWEEN / Metal Jukebox (1999)

A collection of cover songs in the Helloween style. Some of the choices I'd have thought unsuitable to their cheesy power metal (ABBA? Really?) but they occasionally do interesting things with the works. Whereas others are less out of the ordinary; e.g. Bowie's Space Oddity was a complete waste of time. But, as usual, points for trying. The cover of Hocus Pocus (originally by Focus) is fun but not nearly daring enough, which is something that can be said for the majority of the tracks. Before you ask, yes, there's yodelling.

Songs of Note: Locomotive Breath (Jethro Tull); Faith Healer (Alex Harvey)
