'Just look at their faces, do you guys really worship these guys? '

Ulver is one the best and most consistent bands of all time

but i dont think this will be good because i dont think ulver is fit to cover lighthearted psychedelia

at all

And because they made Bergtatt, Nattens Madrigal, Perdition City, and Shadows of the Sun, so that pretty much makes them better than any other band ever.

Well, no, these days I mostly just listen to your hyperbolic, contradictory statements filtered through the robotic monotone of Xtranormal.

Ulver covering JA.... it can be either great or fail miserably.
Odds are the second option will be the right one, but who knows

I've been looking forward to this idea they covered "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night"... enjoyed the hell out of that. Stoked to find out they're really doing it.

Idk this could be good, and if anyone could do then it's certainly Ulver. Cover albums in general just hardly ever work though

The Prince cover was phenomenal. I'm not familiar with any of these songs but will spin them before I listen to this. Ulver is a great band putting out consistent records time after time.


Everyone who has posted that this will suck, band only has two decent albums, they haven't been good since thier black metal days,etc are fucking faggots. FOAD

because i doubt they will be able to cover 60's psychedelic rock and make it work

So Ulver can do black metal, trip-hop, neo-folk and ambient but they can't do 60's psych covers?

A lot of bands over the years I deem to be consistent have let me down at some point in the past few years, Ulver isn't one of them. They don't strike me as the type to put out some mediocre, half-assed bullshit.

tarkus

i dont think it will be half-assed at all, but i dont know if they have the right tone/mood/whatever to cover these super easy-going lighthearted songs. if they do, ill be pleasantly surprised no doubt about it
