Im sorry but this review is full of inaccuracies and bad judgement. (hint: listen to the original song before you judge a cover of it)
I HAVE listened to the majority of the originals, and for the ones that I didn't hear, I didn't see it as necessary to make a judgment on the covers themselves. I do concede that the flipside is that those reviews tend to be rather aesthetic, but that is sort of my argument here, so....

EDIT: Hold it. Are you referring to my blurb for Little Lion Man?

It's always quite intriguing how divergent opinions are on these. I know there's always a split on everything, but it tends to be particularly severe whenever Punk Goes.. is involved.

I definitely agree that a few things are lost in the transition, but I also feel that the cover stands both on its own merits and as a worthier, angrier interpretation. We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

Thanks for making me aware of this awesome band, though!

I dug your structure alot, really organized, but your diction is back and forth between great and immature, your analogy's are foolish sounding at times, too mock-clever

As you can tell, I was having fun and got carried away

How you listened to this shitstorm of a compilation before listening to Mumford and Sons is astounding.

Because I didn't even know who Mumford and Sons was before people brought it up in the comments?

By the way, thank you for all of the feedback on this review, everybody! Glad to see that the discussion has remained very nice and helpful in this thread~
