|Not a very Imaginative cover.|
But bad ass.
An Epic Duo
Time for a strange review. FIX YOUR FACE is a collaborative mixtape made by Travis Barker (known for his drumming in the American group Blink 182) and the (late but) great DJ AM (Adam Goldstein). In this project, Travis Barker plays drums while DJ AM mixes tracks. That situation is a big "whut?" But it works out awesomely. It was sweet enough for them to make a second volume. Coachella or FIX YOUR FACE VOL.2. Moving on now...
The DJ: A Mixing master
|All DJ's must have fly-ass kicks|
On both Fix your face vol.1 and 2, DJ AM mixes together so many different artists, it is hard to keep track of them all. So I am now going to sit here and list off as many bands as I can before I finish my post.
The Beastie Boys, Guns and Roses, Jay-Z, Easy E, Biggie Smalls, The Zombies, The Beatles, Lil Wayne, Damien Marley, Foo Fighters, and The Who just to name a few. I would tell you the entire list but that would ruin the magic. If you have read my previous posts, then you know that I hate ruining a good surprise.
|In his past life, Travis was a drumming god.|
One thing I must mention about these mixtapes. Travis' drumming bring new life to amazing songs. One that really shines out to me is Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.
Overview of greatness
If you don't do that at least give it one listen to. But, if you are like me, you will respect this piece of work for what it is, two insanely talented guys doing what they enjoy most...
Fixing your Face?
I give it a 9.2 out of 10
