This was thrown at me through a twitter user and I couldn’t not post a review. I’m a huge fan of covers in general and I have been listening to The Offspring since their first single dropped.

The Amplifires – Gimme Shelter
In this reviewers humble opinion it’s a very creative choice in covers. You need a certain amount of gravitas to really make it work. While I really liked the music track and the variations they went with to make this song their own, I’m not sold on the female vocals. I love her voice, don’t get me wrong. She has an amazing range and a nice clear sound to her voice. But for me the match wasn’t quite there. That being said, I was certainly entertained by the song and because I liked all the elements I am down to listen to more. In fact they list “Hash Pipe” on their reverbnation page. I fully intend to listen to that as soon as I’m done with this review. My suggestion is listen to this song and then check out more of their work on one of the links below.
