Interpretations: Celebrating the Music of Earth, Wind and Fire collects ten classic EW&F tracks as interpreted by some of R&B's finest practitioners. Released on Stax, this better than average tribute album works pretty well, with contemporary gospel heavyweight Kirk Franklin offering up an impeccable, if nearly identical rendition of "September," while Chaka Kahn sexes up "Shining Star" with an "Alphabet Street"-era Prince-inspired backbeat and Me'Shell NdegeOcello puts a trippy, alt rock spin on "Fantasy."

I Love tribute albums. Get a fresh sounding voice on an old classic but this one truly falls short and I would dare to say desecrates what it upholds. I'm ususally able to find at least 1 song on an album that I even mildly like and I can honestly say I do not like any of the renditions here. It's almost like they were trying to force inject a cornish hen with the amount of stuffing for a turkey. Just trying to cram in as many different styles they thought would appeal to a larger audience. I say scrap this rendition and try again. Thye could call it Second interpretations: Actually Loving the Music of EWF.
