Moments of Brilliant Jazz Insights, But Uneven
"For All I Care" oscillates between moments of pure brilliance (Comfortably Numb), to clear misses (Barracuda.) By far the best song bar none is the remake of Nirvana's "Lithium", with its disconcerting tempo and flights of piano madness. "Comfortably Numb" is also brilliant, but a lot of the rest is hit-and-miss. There's definitely moments of jazz insights into some popular tracks, but the downtempo of some of the other tracks, and weird arrangement decisions, means the album is a letdown as a whole, with flashes of brilliance.
