The last time Renee Fleming put out a “crossover” CD, she got bashed. Now she’s going to put on one that includes a cover of something by “Death Cab for Cutie” (I know the name, I don’t know the music). Here’s the full list:

“Dark Hope” contains 11 tracks…

Endlessly (Muse)
No One’s Gonna Love You (Band of Horses)
Oxygen (Willy Mason)
Today (Jefferson Airplane)
Intervention (Arcade Fire)
With Twilight as My Guide (The Mars Volta)
Mad World (Tears for Fears)
In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel)
Stepping Stone (Duffy)
Soul Meets Body (Death Cab For Cutie)
Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

I’m smellin’ major criticisms and cracks in her future.

Me? I’m always up for this kind of stuff if it’s done well. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. Time will tell.

I read it here.

Here she is on another of those crossover albums:
