Channel 1 is okay, I guess they needed something newer but it’s not too great of a song. Channel 2 is a fun little jaunt. Channel 3 is brilliant. It’s a great song in its own right, and is an awesome rendition. Channel 4 is eh, this version isn’t too interesting. Channel 5 is pretty fun, I like this rendition. Channel 6 is fun but I actually prefer the original version. Channel 7 is one of the few things on here I was unfamiliar with, but it’s kind of cool.

Channel 8 is an awesome rendition of an already great song. Channel 9 is short and sweet. Channel 10 is pretty fun, and I like the use of the flute. Channel 11 has a very cool version of a song that has already been done twice on the original show. Channel 12 is just funny, and has a sample from Seinfeld. Channel 13 is pretty neat, it’s an interesting change for the song. Channel 14 is a fun throwback. Channel 15 is the only one of these the band has done before, so this is just a better recording of it essentially. Channel 16 is probably the oddest choice on here but it works perfectly.

Despite my misgivings about a few tracks, this is such a short and fun little work that I just love listening through it and having 12 minutes just fly by.

Final Rating: 10/10
