I was given the new New Found Glory CD by one of my co-workers. I'm definitely a fan of covers solely for the fact of having the ability to sing along to songs that I already know, to a bands reinterpretation of that song.
Overall, I think this album is all right. Firstly, I am not the biggest fan of New Found Glory covers to start off, but I do enjoy listening to them nonetheless. I feel like a lot of their covers stick to the safe techniques of a pop punk cover. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but they do it with all of their songs which makes the album boring at times.
The three best songs on the album would have to be (in order) -
Stay (Lisa Loeb)
Crazy For You (Madonna)
It Ain't Me Babe (Johnny Cash)
What's great is that Lisa Loeb is actually singing in her own cover. Overall, NFG had a lot of good artists making an appearance on this record - Chris Carrabba and Adam Lazzarra.
It Ain't Me Babe isn't even a great cover, but it's a great song making it very likeable.
Overall, I'm going to give this one a C.
