Song cemetery - King Midas in reverse,
By A Customer
This review is from: Studio 150 (Audio CD)
Every musician who records a cover version of a well-known song must accept the fact that his version will be compared with the original, or - as for example in the case of 'All Along The Watchtower' - with countless more famous versions. Weller - who has never been too original a musician - deserves one superlative, he's produced the most boring covers of them all, with his disillusioned, rusty voice, slowed-down tempo, lacklustre arrangements. Might as well forget about it - are there really people out there who buy this cemetery of songs?
