ALBUM REVIEW: Danzig – Skeletons


Rating6Covers albums can be hit or miss affairs, sometimes insightful and revelatory, often indulgent and derivative. Glenn Danzig’s selections and interpretations sit somewhere in the middle. He has certainly applied the demonic, grandiose metal Danzig sound to these songs, though often they sound like poorly recorded demos. In particular Elvis’ Let Yourself Go works well, as does his Ramones ramalama take on The Troggs’ With A Girl Like You but surprisingly for such an influential song, he takes Black Sabbath’s N.I.B into metal karaoke territory. The real winner is closer Crying In The Rain which best showcases Danzig’s anguished bellow and howl.
