The whole Trinity Sessions album by Cowboy Junkies is great.Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah should never have been made imho. Not only does he lack the gravity for it, he also opened the floodgates for a **** ton of terrible covers.
And as a long time VU/Reed fan, I always thought this was terrible, sleepy, entirely devoid of the acerbic streak that the song needs. I know a lot of people disagree - they are wrong.
I've seen that video a couple times and am always like what the?? What is the situation here? Is that a "school of rock" performance of some sort where these guys are just learning? That was beyond bad.His consideration to not out shine his band mates is commendable.
I never get tired of seeing that video.
