cover of the decade?
that cover is absolutely beautiful.
The original's untouchable. This just takes all the frustration and tension and energy out of it and turns it into Bon Iver. No, no, thrice no.
*Just to be clear, I mean a gaping void of nothingness in a bad way. You actually could put a gaping void of 'nothingness' into Maps and make a really effective cover where the emotional detachment really adds something. He hasn't.
thanks for coming, though.
never noticed that quality to it before.
He just seems to think piteously whining is the same thing as conveying feeling. Which it obviously isn't. You don't for a single second feel like he gets the song.
I genuinely can't remember an unknown act I've disliked more than Keaton Henson since hearing a pre-fame Scouting for Girls. He basically sounds like a mediocre open mic act - music with all the joy, energy, life and emotion of music sucked out of it and replaced with vapid posturing.
You're talking shite.
People are entitled to like what they want. I personally really don't like this. You can take your own view if you want to.
and go out with a friend of mine. Never listened to his music before this. Doubt I will again.

HI SEAN CAN YOU FIX DIS NOW PLEASE
but I think we all know that the definitive Maps cover is the one featured in the ATP film.
Not terrible overall though. Fully expect to see it soundtracking a holiday advert in the next month or so.
Where is the frustration and the release?
Hard to say this without sounding like a wanker, but I don't feel he has really 'got' the song.
This is not exactly a YYYs cover, but it's much better:
at least do it right, yeah? (yeah yeah)
I like it a lot.
it may not have the energy and tension and stuff (which was the problem with the Keaton cover) but it goes for something different - resignation
