Grant-Lee Phillips reinterprets a series of songs from 1980s super groups such as R.E.M., Nick Cave, and The Cure. The result is a fun, insightful musical homage.Grant-Lee Phillips is frequently called one of the most gifted songwriters of his generation. He first found fame with several critically-acclaimed albums as frontman for the group Grant Lee Buffalo. With so much talent, his recent choice to release a collection of covers might seem a bit unusual. A few tracks into nineteeneighties, however, it is easy to hear that Phillips approaches these songs with as much love, insight, and enthusiasm as if he had written them himself. And, essentially, that is what this album is: Phillips assembling the ultimate mixed tape from 20s, but sung with his own voice. Phillips interpretation shows why these songs have remained on the mind of musical connoisseurs. Every track is stripped down to its bare bones, featuring acoustic guitar and the singer's rich, haunting voice. In many cases, including The Cure cover, the tempo has been slowed down significantly. The result is a series of introspective, reverential tributes to a group of musicians who obviously contributed to Phillips' own musical identity.
