Tribute/cover albums are a hit or miss. My liking of a track can unfairly depend on two things: first, do like the band doing the cover and, second, did I like the original song? Well, I know all these songs but I only really knew about 3 or 4 of the bands featured. Sure there are quite a few recognizable 90's alternative names here, but by the time Nirvana broke through my tastes were drifting towards garage/surf rock. All that said, this compilation is a ho-hum affair. It's not bad, I just would rather listen to the originals than these somewhat liberal reworkings.
