12 February 2013 - Love & Rockets - Ball of Confusion

Long before "So Alive" was a big hit for these guys, Love & Rockets did a Temptations cover.

Of course, since Love & Rockets are nothing like The Temptations in any way, they had to make the song, about racial oppression, all their own.  They succeeded in making it into a anthem full of the same anger that The Temptations brought to it.  Each of the three instruments used - drums, bass, guitar - gets highlighted with solos throughout the song.  It's a really sparse arrangement, but really strong and emotion-filled.
