yes, it's a little sleepy, and new music from her would be preferred, but there are some redeeming qualities here. for one, it is her third album of covers (or predominantly covers, counting Jukebox, which had two originals) but the songs chosen here must be personal favorites rather than familiar songs pandering to the listener-as-consumer (as was the case with The Covers Record from 20 years ago).*** with a couple of exceptions, the songs are not well-known or often covered, and that's a good ... read more

Just an unnecessary album filled with covers. Neither song choice nor their performance is surprising.

A voz de Cat Power consegue ecoar de maneira emocionante entre as faixas do álbum Covers, apesar do projeto ter diversas qualidades, a interpretação vocal da artista é o que mais se destaca.

Not me listening to a Covers album before any of Cat Power's other projects and judging the rest of her discography based on this

A very captivating first listen of Cat Power’s newest release ‘Covers’, an album that showcases some pretty ambitious renditions and takes.. so much so that I couldn’t recognise some of them from their originals. With a backdrop of twangy guitars, giving drawn out husky vocals, and at times a pounding drum beat, I am mighty impressed with this collection of, for a better word, a very random collection of choices.

I only knew a few of the songs from their originals ... read more

La inimitable y amada Chan Marshall vuelve al ruedo con otro (y van tres) disco de versiones donde, siendo realistas, se le ve más cómoda a ella que a sus seguidores. Que no sea yo amante de las versiones no convierte en menor un esfuerzo con el que la de Atlanta sabe convivir con total normalidad. Es capaz de hacer suyas unas canciones que, a veces, cuesta entender cómo es posible que lo haga con tanta habilidad/facilidad. Ya lo hizo, saliéndose de toda ... read more

I love her voice. What a pitty it's not an album with her new songs...

Powerful yet calm melodies at the same time.

Fav Songs: Bad Religion, Pa Pa Power, I Had a Dream Joe, I'll Be Seeing You

Awesome homages to great classics.
Amazing how Chan twists these songs into her very own versions and how she creates these completely different and distinct moods with them.
Standout tracks are definitely Bob Seger's Against The Wind and Jackson Browne's These Days - just immaculate covers.
