A unique take on a classic track! (audio)
Doing a cover “Feel Like Making Love” at this point seems like kind of a losing battle at this point. For one thing, D’Angelo already knocked it out of the park with his classic version that appeared on Voodoo. And even beyond that, this song has been covered so many times that I’m sure you could probably make pretty sizable list covering all the artists that have remade this song. Yet despite all that, I gotta say this cover by C.SN is still pretty fresh. Leaning more towards D’Angelo’s version than Roberta Flack’s original, the song is anchored heavily by some top notch drumming that gives the song plenty of groove. Then there’s the excellent keyboard, synth, and Vocodor work that mostly takes center stage and really gives the track some thick atmosphere to boot. Added in some perfectly complimentary guitar and bass work to compliment everything you’ve got a the makings of a pretty solid cover. But definitely the track’s standout moment comes half way when the band goes into a full jazz breakdown out of nowhere that really gives the guitarist a chance to flex some improvisational/solo chops. Overall, I gotta say C.SN solid cover a well-covered classic is a welcome edition to list.
