Strangely, the performances with female vocalists seem to work particularly well, so the Astropuppies "The Tube", The Masticators "Your Imagination" and Big Hello's "Tomorrow Night" all sound great, somehow the change to a feminine perspective definitely gives the songs a new edge. The better known performers, DM3, Matthew Sweet, The Shazam and Walter Clevenger, lend their distinctive voices to the songs but do not stray far from the originals. Particularly noteworthy attempts come from Sparklejets UK with a punchy "Cruel You", Doug Powell fairly rips through "She Satisfies" dropping in a successful but very un-Shoes-like guitar outburst, Michael Carpenter has some fun with a lively "Love Is Like A Bullet", and Don Dixon and Marti Jones perform a beautifully sensitive "Only In My Sleep".
