 Amazing Album

| | See all DMBUTCHER's reviews (4)

As a collection of cover versions by an artist I had never heard this would be a gamble. However...

I caught Patti Smith on Jools Holland and she and her band where excellent. My wife then bought me this album as a father's day present from my two boys.

Outstanding choice. Each track has enough of the original's greatness but Patti and the band are sublime.

A must album, even though you may have never heard her, you will know some of the tracks. Get this you won't regret it as the vocals alone help me remeber how good it can be.

i have never really been a fan and I am not familiar with any album material, only the singles from long ago. I heard this in Lyric Hi-Fi played as a demonstration and subsequently ordered it. i am pleased with the song choice and the renditions, mostly - I am not convinced by the style of the Nirvana cover - but on the whole a recommendation.

 Strangely familiar

I'm invariably underwhelmed by Patti's albums and I'm not the biggest fan of her recordings, no matter how great she is live. I always want to be delighted but find the stuff patchy and so rarely am. Great tracks mixed up with lesser offerings and fillers. Even the long heralded "Land" best-of album seriously disappointed me.

So it was with some trepidation I borrowed this off a friend. However it is great. Immediately accessible, not difficult, that beautiful strange but familiar vibe you can only get off covers albums. All the tracks have a neat Patti twist, some more than others - Teen Spirit, Within you Without you (?) and White Rabbit for example. Also expect the unexpected - Boy in the Bubble, Are you Experienced, Gimme Shelter and that Tears for Fears track?!? I wish more of Patti's stuff was this playable. If this is self indulgent then more please.
