There is nothing worse than seeing a young band think they can do justice to a classic, only to have every music critic and fan chase them out of town, torch in hand (remember when The Used tried "Under Pressure?"). Luckily, John Legend and the Roots
have the respect and the chops to make an attempt, so the music world will sit down and hear what they have to say. It's worth the attention, even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel (and it doesn't).
