1.0 out of 5 stars Just awful 6 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Excluding several songs this album is almost completely unlistenable.

Never thought someone could make the Smiths music sound so bad but they did...

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Smiths gone Hardcore 30 Jan 2004
By Trevor S. Platcow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I love this tribute. All my fave hardcore bands covering one of my favorite bands.
I initially got it for The Business cover of London which is absolutely great.
Slapshot's version of Big Mouth Strikes again is just amazing. Jack Kelly does it the way I wanted to hear it.
This is great for fans of Hardcore who have or had a secret Smiths spot in their aching heart.
The Meatmen's version of How Soon Is Now rocks with their campy humor and still pull it off great.
I really can not say a bad thing about this release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool 4 Jan 2001
By Sargent Fury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As with any compilation thereare a few unmemorable songs, but overall this comp is very good. The standout songs on here are Slapshot, Youth Brigade and Edgewise. I was dissapointed that Meat Is Murder is not on it, but thats a personal thing. Every Smiths song ever written is incredible, so why does Leeway do a Moz song? Anyway, it's a cool record. Buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars OK for headbangers -- not for Smiths fans 21 Sep 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is deceptive that this listing does not have all of the songs/artists listed so that a purchaser can get a sense of what they are actually getting. This CD has nothing but hardcore punk covers of Smiths songs that all sound samey. Every song is revved up beyond belief and shouted over a pogoin' beat. That is fine for a one-off joke, but all of the subtleties that make the Smiths great are gone. If you weren't a Smiths fan in the first place, you would have trouble distinguishing between songs. Only the last track, a cover of Asleep, is slowed down to less that mosh tempo. No-name artists on a tribute album are expected, and it is nice to see that but what this bunch of punks obviously likes and appreciates one of the greatest bands of the 80s. But 60+ minutes of a pogoing soundtrack that has very very very little musically in common with its source material is NOT what Smiths fans will be expecting or looking for. Avoid.
