      good covers album

      The BYO split series vol 3 is a kind of split album which features both nofx and the punk band rancid. It has six song by each of the bands however the best thing about this album is that it's the other band that actually covers the songs so nofx cover six rancid songs and rancid also do six nofx songs, im a fan of both these bands and there both good in their own way so it was great to see them have a go at each others songs.

      The most memorable song off the album from rancid covers was Bob, it's a great song when nofx do it so I wasn't really expecting rancid to do it better however they did a really good job, the singing from rancid has a really distinctive voice when singing and so this gives a really different style to the song, the instruments are also really good for this one I think they pick up the pace a bit and make it a bit rockier.

      Tenderloin which is a cover by nofx of the rancid song is fantastic, it sounds really great when nofx do rancid covers as his style of singing is something I prefer however rancid do write great songs as well so it's a good insight to how well they can do covers, he brings a bit of a mellower style to most of the rancid songs but they sound great.

      The last song has to be my favourite cover from nofx though its his attempt at having a reggae style that rancid do so well, it quite funny hearing his reggae impression however it does sound really good as well

      If you're a fan of any of these two bands then this is a must have album, I was a fan of both and so I really enjoyed it, however if your not then I guess the album wasn't really meant for you, but I still think it's a really great idea getting bands to cover each others songs and I think it should be done by more bands.
