This sounds like the type of album that would only be interesting because of who did it, not what it is. There are so many "legendary artist X covered in legendary artist Y's style" albums. I'd give the whole album a listen if it was made by a band I already liked just to see what they did with it, but the quick trial I gave this didn't particular impress me.

Edit: typo

I get that. I've never really bothered with any of the mash-ups that came before, so the novelty isn't worn off with me. I've loved both artists and never imagined that the two things could be brought together like that. When I stumbled upon it, I thought..."who's this Bobby Ramone guy? Brave move...". Okay... I took a deep breath and thought... "here we go". I actually thought it was a guy or band doing some weird Ramones thing - expecting to skip through the first half dozen tracks and be out; but this was a total shock and pleasant surprise. Maybe lowered expectation played in their favour? :D

I even initially missed the cover art mashup :-[ , so that was also a nice "OH!" moment. Looking forward to the 2nd pressing of vinyl.

I like that it exists! Did they sample his voice, or is that someone who sounds like him? Sounds a lot like him.
