Trip Shakespeare - Volt ep ( 1992)

On Volt, a band I kinda like covers a batch of songs I really like.  So what's the problem?  Still trying to conjure up a definitive answer to that, but a lot of Trip's remakes don't quite jibe with me.  Maybe it's the glossy production, or the soulful vocal inflections (deliberate or not) that put me off.  Still "What's So Funny..." and Neil Young's "Helpless" sound halfway decent in about anyone's hands.  And if you're anything like me, Husker Du and Big Star tunes are hardly anything to complain about.

01. What's So Funny About Peace, Love And Understanding?
02. Something In The Air
03. The Ballad Of El Goodo
04. Time Of The Season
05. Dead Set on Destruction
06. Helpless
