Streetlight Manifesto - 99 Songs of Revolution Volume 1

Streetlight's album leaked and will be released tomorrow for real. This is volume 1 of 8 that will be released consisting of 99 cover songs. I normally hate ska, cover songs, and especially Streetlight Manifesto, but I'm really enjoying this whole thing. Good song selection and good covers.

It's funny how I've been waiting for this album for so long that when it finally drops I no longer find it appealing at all.

I found this album to just be bad.. especially for the amount of time and hype there was.

Just ska-ified a whole bunch of songs that just make them sound awkward. Ska horns doing the opening for such great heights... I mean.. realllly?

Its okay. I only listen to who i'm trying to impress; whether it be my friends or my significant other too!

I don't know, I'm pretty biased from being a ridiculously huge ska fan, but I think they did an amazing job with all of the songs on there. For the ones I didn't think were equally as good as the covers, I thought they were better.
