CD The Covers Record Write Review for CD The Covers Record (CD 1051568), CD The Covers Record Not Yet Rated

Rolling Stone (4/13/00, p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A stopgap fix of her unnerving, coldblooded voice and shaky acoustic guitar. Chan Marshall covers her personal hit parade....wailing with terrifying power..."
Spin (4/00, p.194) - 7 out of 10 - "...Ah, rock repertory. How do you revive songs that have been branded into our heads?....Playing solo guitar, or autoharp, [Chan] Marshall paints herself by other people's numbers....The approach risks seeming hackneyed...but the surgical artistry is adroit..."
Entertainment Weekly (3/24/00, p.102) - "...an eclectic songbook....[Chan] Marshall takes wild liberties with lyrics and melodies, and dissolves indie-rock self-consciousness into fractured, heartrending folk-blues..." - Rating: B+
Alternative Press (5/00, p.80) - 3 out of 5 - "...definitely toys with notions of greatness and luminescence....she's her own best influence."
Magnet (6-7/00, p.71) - "...Those who love Chan Marshall's melancholic pacing and Southern Gothic aesthetic won't be disappointed....This is a one-woman show...just Marshall and her guitar or piano....This isn't a record for anyone seeking carbon copies."
The Wire (1/01, p.34) - Included in Wire's "50 Records Of The Year" [2000].
CMJ (3/20/00, pp.23-4) - "...[Chan Marshall] crawls into the songs, curling up inside them, and feeling her way around their possibilities. Her voice cracks, stumbles and flutters before she finds a lighted corner, whereby she floats out a lush, strong phrase..."
Mojo (Publisher) (4/00, p.92) - "...Wondrous and here, backed only by guitar or piano, she inhabits other singer's material...with a fierce conviction that's often startling..."
NME (Magazine) (3/18/00, p.35) - 7 out of 10 - "...[Marshall] applies her minimalist approach to other people's songs....featuring some obscure material...[She] brings these songs successfully into her own, bleak domain..."
