2 stars "The Anatomy of..." serves as a great crossover opportunity for fans of Between the Buried and Me to learn about King Crimson, Pink Floyd, and a few other non progressive bands, and a few bands that are relatively unimportant.

I'm not a huge fan of cover songs, so purchasing this cover album was odd feeling. But it was better than expected. Between the Buried and Me's wonderful musicianship bring otherwise boring songs up a few notches and leave them on a tolerable level. Their cover of "Three of a Perfect Pair" by King Crimson is fantastic, though not far different from the original other than Tommy's voice. The Queen, Soundgarden, and Faith No More covers also stand out and the latter two definitely have been fused with the BTBAM sound (heavy, screamy, etc.).

This album is an interesting listen, but not necessary by any means. "The Anatomy Of..." serves mostly as a fun novelty item from the band and for them to share with their fans the music that motivated them to create the band and make the best music that they could. If you're interested, check it out.
