The only genre in music where full-length albums are based on covers is jazz, as it seems to me.


What? Confused


I mean that many jazz albums consists of interpretations of classic themes, so-called jazz-standards, and while jazz musician releases album where four of eight compositions are standards like "On The Sunny Side Of The Street" or "Caravan", and it is ok, metal albums with such proportion of covers and originals would be nonsense.


Most jazz artists rarely do this, unless it's like, pussy jazz for white people. I would say that most jazz musicians are more creative than this, and even if they're covering a standard they'll put their own stamp on it, reinterpret it to make it their own.

Dumbest idea ever: "Mexican Radio".


Urrghh yes I hate that one. Totally ruins the album's atmosphere.


Also bad: That David Bowie cover on Vanity/Nemesis. Completely useless, but at least it's after the first four (good!) songs on this overall mediocre album.

PS: Fuck Jazz.

Slough Feg is a band that tastefully incorporates covers into many of their albums. It's all about context, sometimes a cover can be a really revealing insight into a band's personality.

Deathevokation's cover of an Antropomorphia song as the next-to-last track on The Chalice of Ages is another example of a well-executed/placed cover song on an album. By putting their own stamp on it, the song fits naturally into the flow of the album, so much so that I suspect many people probably don't even realize it's a cover.

Yeah, I'd prefer a cover to be in the middle of an album than at the beginning or end. Either way, I don't really like covers on full lengths.

I can think of a few which flow really well...

"Necromantical Screams" on Dying Emotions Domain by Astrofaes.
"Kingdom Against Kingdom" on Inferno of Sacred Destruction by Black Witchery.
"Solitude" on Shadows of the Sun by Ulver.
"Manic Depression" on Retaliation by Carnivore.

I'm also partial towards "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" on Revelations of the Black Flame by 1349. It's not particularly mind-blowing, though...

Nokturnal Mortum's "Lunar Poetry" has "Sorrows of the Moon" in the middle.

THIS! It's godlike!
Also I prefer version of Overkill's "Fell the Fire" with "Sonic Reducer" as bonus-track in the middle.
