I bought this out of morbid curiosity. It's years and years since I heard their remake of "The Boys of Summer", and I remember absolutely hating it. I mean, how could they ruin such an 80s classic? The Don Henley version is one of my favourite songs, by the way.

15 years have passed (yeah, I can't believe it's been that long), and it's genuinely nice to hear it again. Much better than the DJ Sammy bloodbath that got released the back end of the last decade. Ugh.
