    Before Scott died, an idea was formed to celebrate 10 years of their seminal album The Midnight Organ Fight by asking some of their talented buds in music to take a crack at their own versions of a song on the album. The whole album was recorded and was due to be released last summer, but then unfortunately Scott passed away last May. The band have decided they still want to release the record as a testament to the album, and to Scott.

    Tracks I'm most excited to hear next: heads roll off, fast blood, and floating in the forth.

    However, i'm not the biggest Craig Finn fan, and we've already heard him sing a version at the tribute show. Not familiar with Right on Dynamite at all.

    Daughter's cover is the best I've heard so far. Don't know how I'm going to cope with Twilight Sad doing Floating in the Forth

    Some really cool covers on here, others I'm not crazy about on first listen. After listening to Biffy and Manchester's, and even Ben's - I realized how much I enjoy the slight modifications they've made. Fast Blood is one of my favorites of Scott's and it felt weird hearing a rendition that didn't really change anything. I didn't enjoy it.

    And boy was I disappointed in Head Rolls Off. The repetition of the 'house in the clouds' line at the beginning of the song doesn't do it for me. I love how the original abruptly starts with the "jesus" line. It seems like an important part of the song.

    Has anyone received their vinyl yet or know when it ships?

    This one was a big one for me. There's definitely a lot of good ones in there and some that have an interesting take on the songs. Would love to have had Twilight Sad's rendition of "Keep Yourself Warm" on there as well.
