Review Source: DELUSIONS OF ADEQUACY MAGAZINE
Artist: Various Artists
Release: Teen Feeding Frenzy: A Tribute to the Music Teens Love
Label: Go Kustom Records
Now here’s an idea for a compilation CD that should’ve been fleshed out long ago – get 17 diverse indie bands and have them cover an even more diverse range of teen heartthrob hits. Sure, a lot of the appeal to this Go Kustom compilation lies in the kitsch appeal, but remarkably enough, there really are some worthwhile interpretations here. â€¦things outside the skin deliver a downright spooky techno-industrial version of the Spice Girls “Spice Up Your Life” that sounds somewhat like Ministry in the “Halloween” days. â€¦The best stuff here is the most surprising, as bands pull pretty superb tracks from material by the Spice Girls, Davy Jones, and *NSync. Recommended, especially for pop culture whores like myself.
