FAVORITE TRACK: DsharpG (By Shamir)

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: One Day (By St. Panther)

epic Ten takes Van Etten’s Epic and reimagines its sound with a bunch of guests artists. The one that really stuck out to me was IDLES, which actually got me to sit down and listen to this project. Even before listening, the lineup is extremely promising with Big Red Machine, Shamir, Courtney Barnett Vagabon and Fiona Apple being some other appearances on this.

As much as I love Courtney she really wasn't the best choice to cover one of the most intense songs on the album. Overall definitely worth a listen though.
New version of One Day sounds like a drowsy teen-struggling-in-her-bedroom cover with weird autotune and cheap beats. But this reissue as a whole is still good.
Decent selection of covers actually prefer it to the original slightly as my main problem with the original is the tracks are either too long or too short and there is a general lack of focus but with each artist in charge of one song each that seems to be less evident
Best Tracks: A Crime, Save Yourself, DsharpG, Don't Do It, Love More
Worst Track: Peace Signs
