Re:(Disc)overed - Philip Thelen - 5 stars


(Goomba Music - 2011)( - 2011)

Puddle Of Mudd are well known due to some high chart entry's, sold out stadiums and overkill hits as She Hates Me or Control. The album title Re:(Disc)overed is telling everything: The band is releasing their very first cover album. There are thirteen classic rock tracks. The band explains that they wanted to record the tracks they love listening to after playing these songs live during their last tour.

Most of the songs of the album are sounding very similar to the original versions, such as The Joker or All Right Now. Other songs I don't know are well done like Shooting Star, Rocket Man. But please, do not play TNT anymore. These version is missing the balls from the original AC/DC hit. It sounds too plastic-like... sorry. A cool track is Cocaine.

There is nothing special you can say about that record. Just a cover album. Nothing new, nothing special, just for fans.

Track list:

Gimme Shelter (The Rolling Stones)
Old Man (Neil Young)
T.N.T. (AC/DC)
Stop Dragging My Heart Around (Tom Petty & Stevie Nicks)
Joker (Steve Miller Band)
Everybody Wants You (Billy Squier)
Rocket Man (Elton John)
All Right Now (Free)
Shooting Star (Bad Company)
D'yer Mak'er (Led Zeppelin)
Funk #49 (James Gang)
Cocaine (JJ Cale)* With A Little Help From My Friends (The Beatles)*

* bonus track
