Different Strokes by Different Folks

The Grammy ”tribute” to Sly Stone was an odd train wreck and so is Different Strokes by Different Folks, an album of unimaginative covers and tame remixes by folks like Maroon 5, John Legend, and Steven Tyler. A few manage to twist something new out of the great material — props to the Roots (”Everybody Is a Star”) and Big Boi (”Runnin’ Away”). The rest feel merely like awkward, star-studded karaoke sessions.
