Overview

After releasing countless singles (with an ever-changing lineup), Me First and the Gimme Gimmes continue with a flood of covers done the in the usual Fat Wreck Chords fashion. Contemporary hits such as "Rocket Man," "Mandy," and "Uptown Girl" are sung along with galloping pop-punk harmonies and verse-chorus-verse structures. Not the most groundbreaking or original musical outfit, but they sure are a lot of fun. Besides, their versions of John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and Paul Simon's "I Am a Rock" make this one of the more entertaining releases of 1997. Warning: this is not intended for all those who take music seriously.

I got this CD many years ago and it is still one of my favorites! I love the punkish vibe they give to the songs and my favorite is "Season's in the Sun". I highly recommend this CD.
