Brilliant or Crap? A Musical Litmus Test

This week's installment, another cover: John Vanderslice doing Radiohead (which is already something of an acquired taste, I'll admit, like a good single malt).

John VandersliceKarma Police

I love the original, and while the cover maintains the integrity of the song, it's as much Vanderslice as Radiohead and, as I've said, that's what I want from a cover. Plus, I really like music that challenges me whether it's rock/pop, country, jazz or classical. 

So let's get some comments going. Have a listen and force your opinion on the world: brilliant or crap?
