The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Where'd You Go

Released : 1992
Genre : Ska punk
Length : 13:55
Label : Taang!
Producer : Paul Q. Kolderie, Bosstones

I dont' think this was meant to be taken too seriously, a few fun covers done in typical Bosstones style. They do a nice job of taking "Sweet Emotion" and twisting it into a punk styled tune that resembles Aerosmith's original in name only. With "Enter Sandman" though, it seems that the Bosstones fall into the trap of trying to recreate Metallica. Maybe it was intentional, maybe they just couldn't come up with a better way to pay tribute to the song but it's a little dissapointing regardless. The biggest highlight on the EP is Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," the Bosstones offer a sped up, raucous and more fun version, that caps off the EP nicely.
