Why do we like this?

Twin Shadow's Under The CVRS sereis took a poignant turn today, with George Lewis Jr. tackling the recently deceased Lou Reed classic, "Perfect Day." Now, the general response from keyboard warriors has been overwhelming negative, but I think Lewis Jr. has given it a decent crack.

While nobody can match Reed's calming original, Lewis Jr. does add another level to the track, replacing the pleasant piano line and strings with haunting synths. The biggest disparity is Lewis Jr.'s whispered vocals, falling way short of Reed's signature gruffness that was part of his New York charm.

Niether better nor worse than the original, this should be viewed, at the very least, as an interesting tribute to a true rock and roll legend. This isn't the first cover to come out since Reed's passing, and it won't be the last, but it shows the impact that the former Velvet Underground member has had on the music scene, and this should never be forgotten.
