The pop prince and sultry siren are at it again with another volume of their tribute to classic songs from the past, this time focusing upon the 70s (rumor has it there’s at least one more volume in the pipeline). I enjoyed the first collection where they tackled covers of 60s tunes, a direct homage to their classic pop influences. In their own work, Matthew Sweet and Susannah Hoffs (with The Bangles) enjoyed careers built upon a variation of that sound, as did many of the 70s artists covered here.
Did it work? Read my review at Blurt Online.
