Absolutely NOT! It's great. He has a great voice and the band is tight.

I am so very dismayed that it took until midway through the 4th page for someone to mention "All Along the Watchtower."

Yeah...I can't remember if I've posted it already, but I love Rufus Wainwright's cover of Hallelujah. I don't like the Cohen version, don't like the Jeff Buckley version...but one day, I had this on repeat for 4 hours. It's soothing.
