B+

Details Release Date: Aug 19, 2008; Lead Performance: Glen Campbell; Genre: Rock

Who knew the Foo Fighters' ''Times Like These'' could sound like...''Galveston''? Possibly only producer Julian Raymond, who here pairs country singer Glen Campbell, 72, with melancholy songs by rock icons ranging from John Lennon (''Grow Old With Me'') and Jackson Browne (''These Days'') to the Replacements (''Sadly Beautiful'') and U2 (''All I Want Is You'') on Meet Glen Campbell. The initially spectacular '60s orchestration eventually begins to wear, but the Wichita Lineman does imbue already good tracks like Tom Petty's ''Walls'' and Travis' ''Sing'' with a genuine sense of grandeur.
