what does the reviewer expect? If these musicians had the vision and talent of Tim, they'd be the ones having tribute albums made for them, and not vice versa. I mean, come on, this is a HARD band to cover.
I think the key thing is that for pretty much all the tracks on "Leader..." and what I've heard of "Loyal Companion..", the bands and musicians have put their own spin and interpretation on the music, rather than do straight-ahead covers. (which would be a bad idea...)
Tijuana brass and banjos on Anything I Can't Eat? That's just mental , Mr. Sterbus, but laudation to you for doing it!
I remember , when I met Kavus in Rome for his gig with Guapo, that he told me that the new album had "a two minute track the most mental tim ever written, absolutely amazing"... this was back in 2008...
