1-2-3-4 Go!'s We'll Inherit the Earth: A Tribute to the Replacements
collects 23 classic tracks played by a myriad of D.I.Y. indie rock acts. The Replacements
inspired brand of alcohol-fueled bar-rock isn't really that hard to capture, especially when the bands involved don't stray too far from the basic instrumentation that produced the songs in the first place. For the most part, the majority of the groups (Ergs
, Off with Their Head, Druglords of the Avenues, Drunken Boat and Urchin) turn the Replacements
' finer moments into late-'70s punk anthems, and while this is not necessarily bad, it doesn't warrant more than a spin or two before the listener is compelled to just go ahead and break out the originals.
