From the charity album to save Darfur comes just a few more Lennon cover songs that can be added to the bajillions that are already out there.
Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur contains mostly mediocrity. Avril Lavigne sings a disingenuous version of 'Imagine,' and the honky-tonk take of 'Nobody Told Me' by Big & Rich makes one's stomach just a little queasy.
However, out of the ashes of this musically misguided, but politically valiant effort to stop a genocide comes The Flaming Lips' '(Just Like) Starting Over,' a reprise able to stand on its own two feet, even outside the context of charity.
