Voodoo Soup was supposed to be the outtake album that got it right. Instead, it was another in a line of botched attempts to re-create Jimi Hendrix's unfinished final studio album. For most fans, the re-recorded drum tracks by the drummer of the Knack was the most unforgivable sin, yet the album is also poorly sequenced and lacks several important tracks. The sound is polished to a disturbingly bright sheen, while the cover art is garishly retro.
