VARIOUS ARTISTS: We Don’t Need Society: CD

Another tribute album, this one for DRI, and I have to admit that, while I liken the tribute album phenomenon to walking up and kicking a musician square in the nuts for all his hard work, this one wasn’t as bad as expected. Some choice covers of songs spanning the bulk of DRI’s career are provided courtesy of Ratos de Porao, Electric Frankenstein (a smoking cover of “Plastique,” believe it or not), Hollywood Hate, Retox, Capitalist Casualties and more. As it’s a tribute album, I refuse to recommend buying this under any circumstances, but I’m not above suggesting that you find someone that was dumb enough to buy it and ask ’em to tape it for you.
