"25" is even darker and more urgently sung as an acoustic piece which works really well. Her voice works well when dipping into the smokier place before she belts it out. They accomplish similar with the t acoustic reworking of "Only Love Can Save Me Now". With things stripped down in such a fashion you can hear how nuanced her voice is and confirms she is the real deal. I have always stood by the fact that if a song is good, you should be able to strip it down to acoustic guitars and play it in its simplest form which is what they are doing here, and it further proves my point. When it comes to "Death By Rock n Roll" they use more percussion.
She covers another Soundgarden song with "Halfway There" which finds Matt Cameron harmonizing with her. While he sand back ups on Soundgarden songs I guess he gets the job done , but the song is not the most impressive offering here. The cover of "What's So Funny About Peace Love and Understanding", works really well, even if it is less like Elvis Costello's version. "Harley Darling" works but is not as interesting as the others. I will give this a 9, and see how it grows on me.
