Duet All Night Long is one of the most interesting releases so far this year. ItÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s part split, part collaboration, part cover. The bands switch care of the covers at the end of each song, meaning there is a nice mix of Reel Big FishÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s standard-setting ska and Zolof the Rock & Roll DestroyerÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s fun-loving, synth-driven pop rock. Both bandsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ sounds are upbeat with some silliness, giving way to a perfect feel-good album. Adding to the fun is the collaboration on vocals on each track; Rachel Minton of Zolof lends her talent to all of Reel Big FishÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s tracks and Aaron Barrett and Scott Klopfenstein mix up Zolof songs with some more masculine vocals. As for the songs covered, these 80s hits were mostly before my time, so I was only a little familiar with half of the songs. However, the album was still immensely enjoyable given both bandÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s happy-go-lucky interpretations of the melodies along with the great vocal duets.
