Patti Smith - Twelve

After Bryan Ferry's Dylanesque, the years' second major cover album comes as "Twelve" which is Patti Smith's first album of new studio recordings since Trampin' in 2004. This is included with some hit songs from rock artists such as Paul Simon, Nirvana, Jefferson Airplane, Neil Young, the Allman Brothers Band, Bob Dylan, Tears for Fears.

Definitely the songs love to be in Patti's hands, but songs don't deliver something very good or very bad. Mostly Patti's admirable sing style rescues herself from being at dull moments expect cover of "Smells Like Teen Spirit". This Nirvana cover has one of most dull moments in "Twelve", adding slow tempo to original energic rock song with a boring banjo. And Twelwe's best cover song is absolutely a classic by Jefferson Airplane, White Rabit. Plus "Pastime Paradise" which is originally by Stevie Wonder has been a great closing song. Album Available on April 24
