No More Mr Nice Guy
Pat Boone and a big band doing metal covers? Well the arrangements work and Boone turns a bunch of metal classics into enjoyable romps. Much more than just a novelty album, this CD shows just how versitile Boone is as an artist. He takes these tracks and makes them his own, ranging from Judas Priest to Alice Cooper (the title track). While most albums like this are good for a laugh once and a while, this one is good enough for frequent spins. The liner notes on how the album came about are an amusing read. He was amazed to have rockers falling over themselves to work with him on this album. It's too bad that some of Boone's Christian fans had a coronary over this album, causing him to be suspended from his show on CBN. It would be great to think that there might be a sequel and maybe even a tour.
