I think it is far to dismissive to say these are 'dismal approximations of the originals.' If you put stubborn-mindedness aside and take these covers as a new peice of material and approached them with an open mind you will find many great tracks here. It includes some talented emerging artists.

tracks by sufjan stevens, king creosote,adem and stephen fretwell are superb. i love the music of both jeff and tim (less so) and are familiar also with the above artists and think the versions are a credit to BOTH the original and contemporary artist. way above the quality of a normal tribute album.

usually tribute albums are naff..two good artists and the rest made up of artists you've never heard of or a well passed it..
this is a lovely exception, the earlies give a towering version of 'i must have been blind' and tunng's folky spastic 'no man can find a war' is wonderful , there are delights from adem,sufjan stevens,micah p. hinson and the magic numbers..but the standout is king creosote's heartbreaking accordian lead 'grace'
buckley fans will proberbly recoil in horror at someone touching 'their' songs ..but this version is one of the best thing i've heard this year.

This album is covers not the originals, not its not Tim and Jeff so if you are so blinkered that even the thought of someone covering them brings you out in hives, then this is not for you. This is particularly the case as unlike lots of dull cover albums the versions on here are quite different to the originals. As for comments like `when you cover a pair of artists who were as talented as Jeff & Tim, you be asking for trouble' get over it. Nothing is so sacred that it cannot be touched, people who like music (I not talking about the bed wetter who pulls out the old `tortured soul' line), real music fans like music because it pushes forward with the odd nod to what came before.

In summary if you love Tim and/or Jeff because your a music fan always searching for something new and existing this is a worthwhile investment, some outings stronger than others but on the whole a good CD.

Now if you love Tim and/or Jeff with some sort of weird serial killer like obsession or if you cannot accept that music is music (as the Jessie Jackson quote goes) then save your money and at the next opportunity attempt to look yourself in the mirror and ask why do I continue with this `I like music' façade. Find something that you genuinely like and leave the music to someone else, your just kidding yourself.

Ignore that person 'in a box'. The only half decent tracks on here are those from Adem and the one from The Magic Numbers (these two tracks are the only reason I dished out an extra star). It's very disappointing other than that. Absolutely nowhere near as exciting as the artists who penned the songs. Leave it well alone.
