Hard-liners were likely the only ones to buy Big Eye's 2001 tribute to blink-182, and it's those same fanatics that will realize this '04 Tribute to Blink 182 is merely a rehash. "What's My Age Again?," "All the Small Things" -- these are the same cover versions, created by capable yet entirely bland studio musicians. If on some dark day you find yourself comparing the two releases with an intent to purchase one, the '04 Tribute to Blink 182 is probably the way to go. It's made marginally better by the inclusion of the Groovie Goolies covering NOFX ("The Brews") and a hilarious, ridiculous, and slurring take on "My Way" courtesy of sobriety poster child Sid Vicious.
