ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES: Love Their Country: CD

Jan 18, 2007

I loved all their concepts thus far, but country? Hate it! Well not all of it. But it is right up there with emo. It was a tough listen at the beginning. But hearing the cover of John Denver’s “Annie’s Song” reminded me of elementary school. Next was a Dolly Parton cover! “Jolene!” Heck yeah! Love that song! Great job on that one. I put that one right up there with the version that was done by Strawberry Switchblade. Cool stuff! So now I’m way more attentive. I was ready to dismiss this but I found the hook that stuck. No matter how much I might not like something before a listen, give me a good cover and I am converted. Not one of my favorite releases by the super group. But there are two definite songs that I like and one I’m on the fence on. The Hank Williams cover done like it was a cross between Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphy’s making it Irish is interesting.
