You know how much I like QR, but this CD is really cringe-worthy. Tracks 2-5 are completely bizarre. And I didn't really even like their cover of Neon Knights that much. Geoff has an excellent voice, but it is not well-suited to trying to cover other singers. I saw them do Bullet The Blue Sky in concert back in 2000 and it was actually really cool (except for the ridiculous, profanity-laden rant in the middle). But hearing QR do For The Love Of Money was just painful.

Just as a point of reference, I think that the Rush cover album is bad as well. But I didn't really like any of those songs much to begin with. I think the only cover album that I actually like is the Sabbath CD (NIB).
