REVIEWS
Average points: 3.71 (Reviews: 24)
*****
Klasse Adaption des Songs von Al Green und einer der wenigen echten Singlehits, # 26 in den USA im Winter 1978/79.
****
Nun ja, ich kannte diese Version vor dem Original, aber eigentlich gefallen mir keine Versionen des Songs wirklich gut, der Song ist mir deutlich zu wenig flott, etwas zu unharmonisch.
***
Al Green's "Take Me to the River" brought the band the succces they earned
***
Passt überhaupt nicht zum Rest ihres damaligen Outputs. Aus meiner Sicht ein kommerzielles Zugeständnis auf Druck der Plattenfirma. Ziemlich ereignislos, nicht wirklich gelungen.
***
großzügige drei - für einen reinfall..
****
Geht so. Packt mich nicht so besonders. Da haben sie Vieles, das mir besser gefällt. Gerade 4*.
***
begeistert mich ebenfalls nicht...
****
hat was ... aber so gut ist es nun auch wieder nicht
****
ok
******
Rocking it out ! Yeaaaaaah !
***
Mag ich nicht. Verschwurbelte Green-Adaption ohne jeglichen Anflug eines Höhepunktes. Mutzpunter könnte durchaus Recht haben mit seiner These.
*****
Eine gelungene Interpretation.
*****
Erstklassige Performance...
*****
Absolut gelungen..... wenn auch deutlich kommerzieller
**
Finde ich eine sehr schlechte Adaption, ohne Pfuff
**
Die haben besseres gemacht
****
eine 4 kann ich hier ruhigen Gewissens geben
***
Just okay.
****
War jetzt auch nie ein absoluter Liebling von mir, aber für
eine (sehr) gute 4 reicht's natürlich noch locker....

4 +
***
mittelprächtige Fassung des Al Green-Stücks – abgerundete 3.5…
***
... nicht meine Welt ...
**
schwach
****
... gutes Cover ...
*****
Wunderbares Cover in typischem Talking- Heads-/David Byrne-Jammer-Stil.
