Why would one do such a thing - why join such a "soundalike contest"? If someone captures the mood he would certainly do it in his/her own original way. Like they did it with Cohen's songs on the album "I'm your fan", which I really like. Now with Cohen it's easy to arrange the songs in a new way. Waits arranges his songs so rich, that one needs some distance and genius to alternate them.
