COVERS: Radio 1's Live Lounge Volume 3

Radio 1's live Lounge is back with their third compilation album and what a corker it is! Boasting everyone from Goldfrapp to Foo Fighters to Rihanna to McFly this album is guaranteed to have something for every accoustic or covers lovers out there.

While the live tracks are undeniably good their likely to appeal more to hardcore fans of the particular bands. It's when an act takes on someone else's music that things really get good.

Kicking of these covers are McFly, turning their hand to katy perry's "I Kissed the Girl". Mixing in Snap's I've Got The Power gives the track a great edge and really allows the duo to put their mark on the former number one. Dizzee Rascal then turns the tables on The Ting Tings given his own treatment to That's Not My Name. For a song that was played so much over the summer, Dizzee's version keeps it fresh and different. Further down the track list is a version that on paper really shouldn't work but somehow, in practice it manages to. Electronic artists Pendulum take on Coldplay's Violet Hill and turn it into something totally different but enjoyable. The electronic effects turn this into something completely different - who'd have thought you'd be able to jump around like a mad man at a rave to a Coldplay song!? Girls Aloud, don't really step out of their comfort zone when they take on Robyn's With Every Heartbeat but they still do the song justice turning the dance track into a beautiful ballad. Another disappointment comes courtesy of Elliot Minor who sing Rule The World. The band could have put their own stamp on the Take That song but it was really nothing special.

Elbow are one of the acts who stand out when performing their own song. They sing a really touching version of their hit One Day Like This.

A great bonus of this album is that you get the chance to hear Ironik's Stay With me without that bloody chipmunk voice. The song has some really touching lyrics and could be a fantastic ballad but the single version is hampered by the chipmunk vocals. When he looses them for the live version it makes the song one hundred times better.
