Prog Reviewer
1 stars Just a band trying to have fun with some material that inspired them here. It's not that they do anything horrible here, it just doesn't add to anything. I'm sure this was special to the band and I can sympathize with them. However, there's nothing here that is necessary, this is a "for fun" album. I would give this to the band members themselves and their family and friends, as they are probably the only ones that would like it.

My view on albums like this has always been one like this:

No one can play Metallica better than Metallica. No one can play Floyd better than Floyd. No one can play Dream Theater better than Dream Theater.

Playing cover songs is something coffee shop bands do who are just trying to entertain a small crowd. This is not something professional musicians should be selling.

Don't record stuff like this. Unless you are going to drastically change the nature of the song and give the other band credit, it's just a waste of disc space.
