    Beautiful and truly touching.

    A good and often beautiful cover album. Highlights include the tremendous Aphex twin cover (To cure a weakling childboy girl song). I can only give this a 7 due to the lack of original material. Its a fun but hardly life changing album.

  1. Takes never truly shakes the initial notion of a missed opportunity: failing to place a distinguishable spin on the material it seeks to celebrate, ultimately coming off a well-intended curio ticking as many boxes as it omits.
  2. While this probably won't go down as Adem's greatest work (he's too talented a songwriter in his own right for that to happen), it makes for a nice curio.
  3. If there’s a criticism to be made it’s that the album’s perhaps a little one-note.
