Outstanding collection of "New Classics" and Beautiful Music
I've been a fan of "Spongetone" music for awhile and have (of course) now become a fan of Jamie Hoover's solo work and work with other projects. I generally don't like (or buy) "remake", "best of" or "as presented by" products but this one is different and remarkably so! The surprising, metal treatment of "Sukiyaki" is the best I've heard. "Izzat Love" sounds like the Beatles AND Todd Rundren (on their best days) .. "Cathy's Clown" sounds as good as the original. I was most astounded by "A Summer's Place" and "Elusive Butterfly" - OUTSTANDING treatments on both of these. Bottom line: it's a a Jamie Hoover product, it's outstanding and it is worth every single penny of it's purchase price.

Incredible performance of instruments and vocals.
The arrangements are clever and the execution flawless.

You have to hear it to believe it!
I have always been a Spongetones fan and Jamie is the godfather of rock here in Charlotte. Jamie is the best of the best. The music is down to earth and creative all at the same time. This cd is jamie hoover flexing his wizadry and musicianship.

Beating the Beatles at their own game.
Two Beatles covers that improve on the originals? Heresy, you cry! No, just the natural brilliance of Jamie Hoover. Weave them into an album full of sublime cover versions and you have a CD of magic. Enjoy.
