Kim’s Folk Music Blog doesn’t like Covers

About.com’s Kim Ruehl, who writes Kim’s Folk Music Blog, has posted a review of James Taylor’s Covers, giving it 2 out of 5 stars.

While there are sure to be some people moved by his renditions of these songs, there are sure to be just as many who would prefer to hear new songs that he’s written. What often makes covers albums intriguing is the artist’s determination to stretch outside their own parameters to present the song in a way that’s different from how it’s been performed before. That kind of experimentation isn’t Taylor’s strong suit.
