The thought of a bunch of gothic industrial bands covering one of the greatest bands in the existence of music kind of scared me at first. After a few listens through both CD's and several terrifying moments wondering how the song might possibly end up maimed I decided that it wasn't that bad of an attempt. Sure some of the tracks sound practically nothing like the original, but what do you expect from music that is 15-30 years old? The bands that did the most justice to Pink Floyd were the gothic & ambient bands who seemed to be able to find that spark that made Pink Floyd such a brilliant band and at least try to interweave it into the music. The electro noise bands terrified me with their renditions. Under most normal circumstances I love everything ever made by Leaetherstrip and Controlled Bleeding but their attempts at covers made me cringe. All things considered the tribute album wasn't half bad as long as you are not expecting classical renditions of your old favorites but rather modern interpretations of old manifestations on a theme.
