BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME
THE ANATOMY OF
Between the Buried and Me are an odd lot, hence the covers of Motley Crue, King Crimson, Queen, and Sepultura on the band's cleverly titled cover song collection THE ANATOMY OF. Unlike the band's own songs, which simultaneously glisten while leaving scars, some of these choices are clunkers, like the sterile cover of Pantera's "Cemetary Gates". Yet in lieu of the spottiness of this 14-track release, these shape shifting musical juggernauts do pull off some impressive ones, like the punishingly accurate version of Faith No More's "Malpractice" and the strikingly gorgeous rendition of Pink Floyd's "Us and Them" that gives BTBAM enough reprieve for the awkward moments of THE ANATOMY OF. If you're a fan who marvels at their versatility, this one is a must own.
