Problem is; Fuel, that they aren't marketing it as a joke. They touting it on WWE.com and in every ad I've seen as something at least loosely legitimate artistically. My buddy burned me the whole thing and it's just vile. I mean, from top to bottom it's just such crap and it's $20.00 worth of crap, and I bet that's just what the Americans get to pay.
Austin's stuff is awful. I must admit, I laughed a bit at his "it would have been much easier if you just drank it with your mouth..." I don't know what that means, and I don't wanna know.
Jericho's stuff sounds great, especially by virtue of contrast, but no one who isn't in the Klan listens to that kind of stuff.
If it hadn't been on TV weekly for the last 9 months straight John Cena's song would be like finding twenty bucks in a dumpster full of used condoms. But since it has been played quite regularly, it's more like finding your ex's phone number in the same dumpster.
BUT...I must say, if anything makes this album worth giving a listen, it's Kurt Angle's song. This song epitomizes the phrase so bad it's good. I mean this album is cheese, from top to bottom, but Kurt's song seems to be comfortable with that. He doesn't try to show he has talent. Everyone else does, and it's embarrassing.
I'd tell you to kiss my ass, but I don't want to get it infected.
I'm just saying if someone buys it thinking they're going to get great music, they have no one to blame but themselves. All the CD is good for is a laugh. Now I'm not spending $20 to laugh at bad singing, that's what those American Idol type shows are for.

Hehe, that actually sounds funny ...I'm still waiting for Jericho to perform a full out over-the-top Rock ballad with his fellow Fozzy band members for Trish LoL That would be hilarious

Get your WWE CD copy autographed by Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Trish Stratus and Lilian Garcia after Raw... Oh MY! Christmas has come late. Can't get better then that.
I'd have to say the album is good. Austin skits are funny. I really did like the Trish song, her voice is just as good as her looks. The song that has stuck in my head is Jerichos. All other tracks range from Ok to good IMO. The DVD is nice, Jericho is hilarious as always and come across the best. Nice presenting job by Coach aswell. The eggs are right twice on Lita/Austin/Jericho bits to highlight their photos. I would say pick it up if you need a laugh or be pleasently surprised by some singing skills.
I picked up three tracks last night off iTunes; it was added this week (every teusday they add new albums, this week was WWE Originals and Crystal Method, woohoo.) Nice thing about buying this way -- you don't have to pay for the crap, you can just pick up the songs you want...
Jericho's is Fozzy-esque, so if you dig Fozzy, you should dig it. Problem is it has some weird little interjections and oneliners which don't feel like they belong in the mix... the Dudleys one isn't too shabby, even if they're above average karaoke singers at best. John Cena's is John Cena's, if you want it, this is probably the only place you can get it; I don't see the WWE re-including it on another entrance theme disc and undercutting sales of this one.
I'd never pay twenty bucks for this Wrestlecrap worthy item, but three bucks sounds about right.
