We gave it a C+

Even in death, the quiet Beatle gets short shrift. Only a few tracks on this homage to Harrison do his talent justice. Lowlights include Bill Wyman wheezing through ”Taxman” and They Might Be Giants turning ”Savoy Truffle” into even more of a trifle than ever. Ironically, it takes a pair of players who’ve also been overshadowed by greater artists — Dave Davies and John Entwistle — to do Harrison proud. Otherwise, this tribute is like a roast.
