Eh, there are some things that bands shouldn't try unless they can get close - and I think that includes covering arguably one of the best pure vocalists in the scene. You're obviously going to get compared to the original ... and while I like Joe's voice on the record, he's just not that strong of a vocalist live. This is a song made by the vocals (the acoustic version from the AOL sessions shows that) ... and as much as I like Transit, it's just not a cover that showcases the best parts of Transit.
hafta agree with this.
