This sounds like lifeless karaoke at best. The Roots are fine, but Dirks Bentley can't make it work. I know people were kind of down on Fleet Bear's cover of Corduroy, but this is so much worse. Part of me feels like Dirks could have done a lot better with one of the the slower songs, but then the other, smarter part of me just goes nahhhhhh.

I saw Elizabeth Mitchell this last year with my kids (3, 2 & 2) and they LOVED it. I kinda loved it too.

"After the Fall" isn't really doing it for me, but the "She's 22" remix is excellent.

Morning Dew - but since that's actually a cover of a Bonnie Dobson song, I'll go with St. Stephen

If they could get Billy to sing this with them then it'd be awesome. I love the music, but the vocals aren't very good.

I can see how somebody thought this was a good idea, but a whole album of this stuff is just waaaay too much. If The View or even Pumping Blood was included on a proper Metallica album then people might be a lot kinder to it - and maybe even be talking about how great it is. But It's just really hard to listen to more than a few tracks before needing to turn it off. I admire what they're going for here, but it just falls flat on its face.
