    A fantastic album. They adeptly add new flair to still manage to do the original artists justice. The 'I Can't Write Left Handed' cover is hands down one of the best songs of the year.

    The songs in this collection serve for a timely reminder that hope and consciousness through music still contains some currency - with the added bonus that it's also a fine piece of work in its own right.

    The set is a masterclass in how to respectfully update and enhance classic music, and proves how vital and relevant 30-year-old music remains today.

    It's not just that these sentiments are timeless - these songs, in these hands, are only now receiving their definitive interpretations.
