Alt Media Crucible Review
An average review of the Hunters and Collectors tribute album Crucible.
Author: Luke Cox, Alt Media.

The commercial radio-flogged, Aussie powerhouse rock group becomes relevant once more with this playlist of H&C tributes.
Featuring such notables as Neil Finn, Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins and the great Eddie Vedder, the Hunters are also covered by the likes of Birds of Tokyo, British India, The Panics and more.
There are some great crossover tracks here. Paul Kelly being mixed into an Urthboy track doesn’t disappoint. The real one to look out for though is The Living End’s rock-a-billy treatment of Say Goodbye.
Although interesting, there is no overarching flow to the compilation and the result is tense suspense with no pay-off. (LC)
