Yeah I like that one.

A Perfect Circle's covers album  eMotive is one of the best I can think of.  Great for those who are into interpretations and shaking things up as opposed to staying very loyal to the original.

I forgot about this cover, this is awesome! Tongue

It's done by a guy who chats on a couple of guitar forums that I frequent. He's a talented guy, I met him at a forum jam and he played (and sang) Night Ranger's 'Don't Tell Me You Love Me' pretty much note-for-note the very first song he performed.




He also did Sponge Maiden LOL
