If you’re looking for a good way to join in with the rest of the J-Rock world in celebrating MUCC’s 20th anniversary this year, look no further than this album. This is a 2-disc collection of some of the most talented musicians in Japan covering some of the most iconic songs from MUCC’s sprawling discography.

With so many amazing contributions, choosing one or two favorites is a monumental task. Those ride-or-dies will not be disappointed by sukekiyo’s incredibly unique take on “Gerbera” — they’ve ingested it and given birth to something that’s unmistakably theirs. Merry’s gritty rendition of “Ieji” is as much a love letter to the song as it is to the band that created it.

But if you’re new to MUCC this is a great opportunity to check out similar acts you might not be familiar with. With a gorgeous cover illustration done by HYDE (L’Arc~en~Ciel/VAMPS) that’s surprisingly serene, this album has something for pretty much everybody, and is an absolute must-listen for hardcore fans.
