I'm not gonna be too hard on Patti Smith's new album of covers, because clearly her heart's in the right place, and she chooses some good numbahs.

But...what are you supposed to do with a recording like this? "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has an interesting arrangement, and "Soul Kitchen" is probably the only cover here suited to her voice, but after the initial listen, I think only a rabid fan (of Patti, her persona, her flesh and blood, as opposed to her music) would really wanna hear this again.
