Amoeba Review

To many, Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. embodied the best of the '70s: romantic, soaring acoustic ballads celebrating love, life and forests with a still-unmatched, sun-kissed verve. Now, on the 15th anniversary of his death by crashing his experimental single-engine plane into the Pacific, an estimable assortment of indie legends and cowpunk troubadours does fervent credit to the Denver songbook with The Music Is You, a John Denver tribute. High-flying warblers Jim James and Allen Stone take flight on a pair of mega hits, "Leaving On a Jet Plane" and "Rocky Mountain High," hitting notes from plaintive to surreal. The rest of the gang reveal lesser known but equally evocative tunes like "Looking For Space" (Evan Dando), "Prisoners" (J. Mascis & Sharon Von Etten) and "Wooden Indian" (Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes). Those granny glasses and fluffy blond locks hid unsuspected depths.
