Lone Wolf with a Positive Review
I may be the first to write a glowing positive review of this album, but sometimes it takes being to only person standing to sway other's opinions. Not that that is what I aim to do. This album features some pretty incredible performers who in my eyes hold up to the master himself. It is interesting and refreshing to hear some of my favorite Peter Gabriel songs reinterpreted by other greats. In fact, I kinda wish Peter had made "Scratch My Back" with as much variety as this album. Still, both albums hold up to the few great albums that have been made in the spirit of musicians paying respect to other musicians. There is so much negativity in the world, why do we feel the need to criticize something that was obviously an inspired idea. We need more of this in the world.
just goes to show you
Peter can scratch a back just fine but no one scratch the master's.
Interesting for hard core fans
Cover or tribute recordings often reinforce how good the originals are and this is no exception.
After the first two songs, it's lackluster and somewhat depressing. There is a surprising lack of energy in any of these versions.
