Biography

“I'm fully aware that when some people hear my name in a musical context, it's not often equated to anything earth-shattering. Yet, in many ways, this new record finds itself in a similar vein to the previous one, "Wild Hope." While “Amanda Leigh” was recorded in a much more concise period of time, both albums just feel like a real body of work, more ... Read more in Amazon's Mandy Moore Store

Product Description

cd

Amazon.com

In a pop world where history is rarely acknowledged beyond whatever American Idol dishes out, Mandy Moore has discovered a stash of old records. The 19-year-old singer-actress who first appeared with 1999’s "So Real" has now decided to stretch her artistry with a dozen ’70s and ’80s touchstones. The results are mixed, but in the end Coverage is a success. Never over singing just because she can, but in proudly good voice, she brings worthy new shades to XTC’s "Senses Working Overtime," Todd Rundgren’s "Can We Still Be Friends" and Blondie’s "One Way or Another," while acknowledging the breakthroughs of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon . Whether she’ll continue to follow this path is unknown, but this CD is an achievement Moore can be proud of. --Heather Court

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have "Coverage" November 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Three cheers to Mandy Moore. She rummaged the aisles at a music store, selected all kinds of classic tunes and albums by singers/songwriters, and got the idea to make a CD of cover songs. She picked her album tunes not because they were famous, but because she enjoyed the songs. Some she had been familiar with for years and others were more recent finds, but either way, she wanted to expose a new generation to these great songs.
This special edition includes a DVD with bonus footage including the video for album's premiere release Have a Little Faith in Me, beautifully illustrated with photographs as the singer walks along, and the video for Drop the Pilot, which was supposed to be the first release.
I cannot help but crack up the volume as soon as the album begins, because it starts off with a bang: Senses Working Overtime. It is catchy and it has excellent harmonies and background vocals. It blends right into the next track, The Whole of the Moon, which is lyrically amazing and ends with a superb echo effect. Can We Still Be Friends slows things down a bit, only to be sped up by I Feel the Earth Move, which feels very "live" yet disco. Mona Lisa and Mad Hatters, another ballad, is heartfelt. Drop the Pilot is one of my favorite tracks on the album, rock meets pop, energy meets emotion. Moonshadow is light and sweet, aided by plucky guitar. Dare I say that I like her version of One Way or Another as much as the original? As with the other songs, it is great to hear a familiar song sung by someone who is not attempting to sound exactly like the original singer. Likewise, Anticipation is good and slow with twang, as it should be. I enjoy how full Help Me sounds with the brass section and background vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars a leap in maturity November 16, 2003
By Maxine
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit that when I first heard that Mandy was releasing an album of covers and covers only, I wasn't looking forward to it. As an eighteen-year-old girl, I wasn't too excited about the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s ... but Mandy brings forth a well-done renewal of each of the songs.
"Coverage" is one of those lazy Saturday morning CDs to sit back and relax to. Or even to dance to. While Mandy's voice on this record is nothing exceptional, the total ambience of the record is well worth the investment. She takes a step back from the conventional "unconventional" type of pop music and a step toward a newfound maturity with "Coverage". The music is so much more than just her voice and the beat; there exists a flute, a sax, some exotic instruments that bring back the hippie/indie flavor of the mid-20th century.
Traditional pop music, "Coverage" is not. But an easy listen and soundtrack to a sunny day it is. It possesses a refreshing and sparkling quality that may even bring the sun TO your day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great tune and a gutsy gamble October 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It was not uncommon in the sixties for artists to put out an album consisting entirely of covers of other people's music. In fact it was quite common that most albums would contain several "cover" songs that were already hits. Even the Beatles covered the Miracles, Carl Perkins, girl-group The Marvelettes and Chuck Berry among others.
Former teen queen, now rising actress Mandy Moore has gone retro in more ways than one. First by including only covers, then by restricting herself to songs of the late 60's thru early 80's, and finally even the graphics (including that large Columbia logo like a stamp on the front cover) hearken back to that "cover-age" from whence her album gets its name.
The song choices are excellent. From the familiar Carole King ("I Feel The Earth Move"), Cat Stevens ("Moonshadow"), and Joni Mitchell ("Help Me") to the hidden Elton John gem "Mona Lisa & Mad Hatter" to the obscure (to most Americans) tracks by the Waterboys ("Whole of the Moon"), XTC ("Sense Working Overtime"), and Joan Armatrading ("Drop The Pilot"). Excellent and brave choices!
My regret, however, is that the arrangements do not match the bravery of the repetoire. They are largely copies of the original material, rather than fresh reinterpreations. I'd love to have heard "Whole of the Moon" reinvented as a tender ballad. Or "Moonshadow" with only string accompaniment.
Anything other than karaoke versions. Although it must be said, these are first-rate karaoke versions.
If Mandy Moore wants to be the Eva Cassidy for a new generation, she still has a ways to go. I hope she makes it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have a little faith in Mandy January 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Mandy Moore is the pop singer who managed to capture the fickle liking of the media, kept her clothes on, never kissed Madonna, made a name as an actress, and put out the best covers CD in years, "Coverage." After a few CDs of forgettable (often downright bad) pop fluff), Mandy spreads her creative wings by presenting covers of some of her favorite songs.
Starting off with a bang is "Senses Working Overtime" (XTC), followed by (among others) the low-key swirling "Whole of the Moon" (Waterboys), the catchy "I Feel The Earth Move" (Carly Simon), slow, soaring "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" (Elton John), sweet folky "Moonshadow" (Cat Stevens), the imploring "Help Me" (Joni Mitchell), and a rocking cover of "One Way or Another" (Blondie).
While "Coverage" didn't get the media burble that Britney's "In The Zone" did, it garnered far better reviews from fans and critics alike. It's a creative gamble, and the passion behind it pays off. Moore's taste in older songs only adds to the pleasure gotten from listening to her sing them. While giving a 21st-century spin on classics like "One Way or Another," Moore maintains the distinctive sound of each one.
Moore's vocals are fuller and richer than before, as if the better material has allowed her to stretch vocally. At times, the nuances of her voice change (such as "I Feel The Earth Move"), as if influenced by whoever sang it first. What's more, she sounds as if she really is relishing what she's doing. The background music is also more multilayered, with a flute, saxophone, what sounds like a tambourine, and possibly more. "Moonshadow" has almost nothing but a guitar serving to frame Moore's voice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not That Great
Nothing stands out about these songs. They are all bland and sound similar. "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" is the only one I liked. This is her worst album.
