How Soon Is Now? Smiths 'Tribute' Album

Heard this album last night, almost uniformally awful. Hundred Reasons fail to top t.A.tU's version of How Soon Is Now? A lot of the albumis like when punk acts used to cover pop classics with 'hilarious' results. Efforts by Million Dead, Cursive and Garrison are slightly interesting. The version of 'Last Night I Dreamt...' is ok. However, I think the version of Ask here is better than the original....

Anyone else heard it or any of the tracks?

I got the promo of it a while back, it's terrible and I wouldn't buy it.

No, but Cursive's 'Recluse' is an hypnotic, mesmerizing song. Fit to cover and Smiths song, imo.
