VARIOUS ARTISTS / Drink To Bones That Turn To Dust: A Toast To Oingo Boingo [2006]

The 2006 Oingo Boingo tribute album, Drink To Bones That Turn To Dust is the perfect example of how a tribute album can executed with grace and quality.
Instead of trying to please the youth of today by using modern pop-rock acts, we're treated to a variety of independent artists covering a plethora of musical genres, including bluegrass, country, jazz, hip-hop, punk, R&B, cabaret and even a piano ballad.  Not every take is my cup of tea but they're all done with creativity and a passion for the original and sits fine with me.
