We shouldn't moan at a tribute with some recognisible names on, (and with a somewhat interesting tracklist but the thought of Nickelback, P.O.D. and Godsmack droning their way through Queen's back catalogue does not appeal in the slightest.

Still, the Flaming Lips doing Bo Rhap, and QOTSA's contribution could be interesting.

Some bizarre choices - can we assume Godsmack are a Hollywood signing?

I think it looks interesting. And I'm glad they finally got some bigger names because the last tribute album wasn't that amazing.

So, another "tribute" that will be as interesting as Dragon Attack then - christ, let's just hope that some of the artists do somethign different with the songs rather than just "cover" them.

Is there another tribute album (symphonic or not) as original and interesting as Valensia's?
