Paste doesn’t like Covers

Paste Magazine posted a review of James Taylor’s new album Covers, and they didn’t really like it all that much.

Covers is his first album devoted to nothing but other people’s music and, unsurprisingly, it’s marked by his same strengths and weaknesses, not to mention some intrusive backing vocals and superlatively bland production.

There’s also a streaming MP3 of “It’s Growing”.

(If I’m reading it right, it sounds like they think “Steamroller Blues” is a cover, which of course it is not.)
