The cover of "Tom Sawyer" by the Bad Plus is not nearly as good as it should be.
This is taking into account both the pretensions of the Bad Plus and the pretensions of Mssrs Lee, Lifeson, and Peart.
It should be a glorious meeting of madness, Bruce Dickinson joining Iron Maiden for the third album, or Mark Kozolek bringing his self-absorbed crybaby nonsense to the AC/DC catalogue for an album of open-tuned folk-styled covers.
It should be either perfect or perfectly unlistenable. Instead, it just exists.
And, gawd knows, too much just exists at this point.
