Coming in at just under 80 minutes, as soon as the muffled, distorted opening chords of 'Whole Lotta Love' begin to blare from the speakers, whether it be Siena Root or the real deal, you are hooked, trust me! The heavier thump of 'The Rover' from Fireball Ministry is next, and that's backed by both the trippy title track 'Dazed And Confused' (The Cult Of Dom Keller) and a stunning 'Heartbreaker' from Mothership.
Next up on this quite exceptional tribute album is the psychedelic screamer 'We're Gonna Groove' from JOY and that in turn is followed by a simply stunning, absolutely amazing 'No Quarter' from Dead Meadow. One of the stand out highlights of this collection, it is one you can listen to over and over (and over) again without it wearing on you. Simply put, Dead Meadow make it their own. The frenetic 'Communication Breakdown' from Lostage is next and that is followed by both a luscious 'Immigrant Song' (Electric Eye) and a thunderous 'The Ocean' by Brutus.
Fuzzy guitars and generalized musical distortion abound on 'Nobody's Fault But Mine' by The Machine (perfectly named for bringing us that particular song, and that is followed by 'In The Light' by The Fresh & Onlys. This brilliant album is then, sadly, brought to a close with a trio of tracks: Indian Jewelry bring us a, sorry, weak 'Kashmir,' The Tulips remodel 'Stairway To Heaven' like you have never heard it brought forth before, and then finally The Black Moods bring us the guitar fest known as 'Thank You'.
