Ultraelectromagneticjam

I just posted my review of Ultraelectromagneticjam, a tribute album for the Eraserheads with their songs performed by today’s popular local acts. The project was kickstarted by Jam 88.3, though I feel the idea was born after Brownman Revival’s cover of the song Maling Akala, which has always been my favorite E-heads song.

Entry continued below. ↓


Most tracks are rather passable, and some stand out like MYMP’s “Huwag Mo Nang Itanong” and South Border’s “With A Smile,” though I’m sure die-hard E-heads fans would cry injustice. Still, you’ve got to read my review for my take on every song on the CD. Now I really have to sleep.

  1. Meron ka narin? hehehe… Galing talaga ng mga artist. Kaso Medyo ayoko lang yung version ng south boarder. Bias ako. :D

  2. ditto.
    di ko rin nagustuhan yung southborder song.

    i especially like radio active sago’s alkohol and kitchie’s ligaya (hear her giggle in the line ‘ilang ahit pa ba ang aahitin’ – wonder what could she be shaving) hehe

    and of course, francism’s superproxy rocked the album. :D

  3. si vince pa ba vocalist ng south border, kakilala ko kasi yun nung HS and nung first year ng college. hehehe, parang di nga bagay na magcover sila ng eheads… pero di ko pa naman napapakinggan eh so hindi ko pa talaga masasabi kung ok nga. kasi ako naman when I judge music, kahit jologs pa tumugtog, basta maganda yung pagkagawa and pagkatugtog, I will like it too…

  4. I wish that (eheads)their reunion would be just around the corner after this succesful project…I missed them playing together like those good old days

  5. Kim, kilala mo pala yun? Cool. Actually okay yung rendition nila nung song, basta hindi mo lang maisip how the E-heads original sounds like. ;)

  6. yeah, magaling si vince, kala ko talaga nung una ko cyang nameet mga negro ang kabarkada niya when he was growing up, kasi ang galing magR&B…

    anyways, di ko naman cya ganong kakilala eh, pero we know each other kasi we both come from the musical extremes ng school namin (music, sports, chicks and bullies, yan yung mga social extremes ng LSGH)… heheheh

    I will listen to it if I get my hands on a copy.

  7. maganda sana ung ibang nag revive e…
    ung iba lang panget…
    katulad ng southborder…
    binaboy lang ung kanta ng e heads

  20. maganda para sakin ung sa Orange and Lemons.. intro pa lang lufet na.. bagay na bagay ung boses ng orange and lemons sa kantang “Huwag kang matakot” asteg!!. :) malufet di ung “Para sa Masa” the best talaga ang E-head songs.

    peace!

  21. ganda ng album! i lykd ligaya by kitchie, as well as spoliarium by imago….. take no offense dun sa fans ng soutborder pero i find their version ng with a smile absurd…

    lufet din nung para sa masa…. hahaha! :D

    pero la pa rin papantay sa eheads…. long live eraserheads…. lol! pa-add sa prenster… rockattract006@yahoo.com…. tnx!

  22. +kOrnY ng southborder panira ng album amfutah!!!+

    +gnda n sna ehh+

    +prng babuy ung knta+

    +\m/+

  23. maganda naman yung mga versions ng iba sa kanta ng eheads, pero syempre iba parin si ely buendia..mas astig yung boses nya eh..talagang bagay sa mga songs na ginawa nya..

  24. good thing i found this in google, been trying to talk about this to anyone but it seems karamihan sa mga new found friends ko ay hindi masyado into e-heads.. so cguro this is one opportunity to just say something about the new album na tribute para sa e-heads. i agree na ok yung ALKOHOL (Radioactive Sago project) kung di ko nga siguro alam na e-heads ang original nun, baka isipin kong original song nila.. also, i like spoliarium (imago) kc kahit siguro babae na version, ewan, pero parang may dating.. SUPERPROXY ok rin… these are the best 3 songs siguro na napili ko, pwede na rin sigurong isama yung sa brownman revival pero may ibang kanta talaga na di ko matake.. iba ka-c nung si ely yung kumanta, there’s a certain emotion na hindi mo nafefeel sa ibang songs sa album na to.. walang dating.. at syempre, marami pa sanang songs ang eheads magaganda rin, but of course, baka hindi mabigyan nang justice nang ibang artists so bayaan na nating eheads na lang ang kumanta.. i hope magkasundo sila na magperform ulit kahit for once lang.. isang national concert… haaay.. wishful thinking…
    good old e-heads days

  25. teka, in addition, after everything sa album, parati ko nang panatutugtog.. but this time, hehehe, skip to number 3 agad… hehehe then skip again to superproxy then skip again to alkohol hehehe then skip to maling akala them to para sa masa… wahahah pero minsan pinababayaan ko na.. heheh
    cge, enjoy the cd everyone.. hihih

  26. mas aus sana, kung puro rock band ang narevive… ndi nacarry ng MYMP at southborder eh (sorry sa mga fanatic, opinion ko lang po ito!)… ndi bagay kay kitchie ung song… and kudos to IMAGO, SUGARFREE nd O&L…. at ngaun lang ako natuwa sa Cueshe bcoz of Hard To Believe!!!

    Still, walang tatalo sa orig!!!

  27. ok ung album pwera sa southborder..yakkk…si ely kumanta rin sa superproxy2k dalawa sila ni kiko..nagrap pa nga e..hehehehe..may part 2 pa yan..abangan natin..09203222896

  28. Pingback: ..

  29. i love this album.. kakamiss ang eheads tuloy.. pero in fairness maganda naman ang version ng southborder.. ganun ang style nila e.. nagandahan rin ako sa rendition ng mymp.. hehehe i wonder kung bakit walang nagreact sa version ni rico j puno.. tpos lagi SB ang tinitira hehehe pero pinakafavorite ko ung ALCOHOL.. astig!! next hard to believe.. chaka tikman!!! :D love this album.. worth every penny!!;)

  30. sa you tube ang galing ng video ng superproxy.. da best talaga. at andun pa ang kaning mga junior.. soon to be a big star like thier father kiko and ely…galing yun nga ang nilagay ko sa friendster.. galing kasi ni idol kiko……galing ng videooooooooo……………

  31. i originally bought the tribute album as a gift for my sis-in-law but before i gave it to her, tin-est-drive ko muna sa cd player ko… at hanggang ngayun di pa rin natanggal sa player… hehe

  32. e’heads isa na talagang alamat……..the best ultraelectromagneticjam,especially yun ky kitche nadal na song..sana my second album pa ulit.yun all female naman artist…

  33. for me, the with a smile of south border is not good enough. Sana di nlang nila iniba ung tono but at least maganda rin nman ang kanilang cooperation

    i just want to say na ely!! maganda siguro na magreunion kau ng dati mong ka bandmates!!!

  34. ala na me masabi..sa susunod na album nlng ngmagneticjam part 2..sana lumipat na ang hale sa sony bmj para makasali sila sa pagrevive sa eheads..ano kaya kakantahain nila? FILL HER bagay cguro..

  35. MAGANDA SANA UNG PARA SA MASA NG VARIOUS ARTIST KASO MAY RAP ANG BADUY BADUY KASI ANG RAP NA OPM INDE MAGANDA SERYOSO NA NAHALUAN PA NG RAP HAY NAKU BINABOY LANG ANG KANTA!!!

  36. im so surprise talaga nung nalaman ko na mayroong ganyang album!!! grabeh!!!… aztigin talaga ang eraserheads, no. 1 forever!!!

    nagustuhan ko ang lahat ng kanta sa album na to except sa hard to belive ng cueshe at with a smile ng souhborder!!!
    Sana magreunite uli sila!!! kapag nangyari yun sobra kong matutuwa!!!

    sana ni revive na lang ng spongecola ay ang “maskara”
    pero it’s ok….

    hay…….
    mabuhay ang ERASERHEADS
    forever!!!

  37. eheads produced good songs during their prime… eventhough the band is over, the songs they created stays forever.

    this album rockz me!!!

  38. Ewan ko lang ha, pero hindi talaga siya ganun kagandahan. It does grow on you, pero hindi siya stunning or anything.

    Tsaka, who the effing hell is Isha???????!!!!!

    Talagang di yun matanggal-tanggal sa utak ko!!!!! Grrrrr!

  39. It annoys me that some OPM peepz are currently seemingly riding the bandwagon of Eraserheads fever. In the old days, other not-as-talented flash-in-the-pan bands were considered the “cool ones” by the “in” crowd in places like Club Dredd, etc. and elitist radio stations. Time has proven that good music can never be put down. Bakya crowd daw kami noon dahil gusto namin ang songs ng e-heads. Fast forward 14+ years and their music still lives on. Eraserheads are now elvated to legendary music icons. Well deserved. As for us original fans, smile na lang, enjoy the waves gaya ni Marcus, kahit deep inside gusto kong sapatusin ng bakya ang mga pa-sosyal kuno na mga taong naghusga at nag-down sa amin noon.

  40. just in case you didn’t know…si FrancisM ang nag-compose ng SuperProxy ng e-heads…kaya si FrancisM ang napili nilang kumanta nun sa UltraElectroMagneticJam
