Editorial Reviews

2012 release, a covers album from the Grammy-winning R&B and Soul singer/songwriter. Her brilliant interpretations of songs from Metallica, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and many others shine a light on her unique artistry and passion. Also includes her haunting take on Eurythmics' 'Here Comes The Rain Again'.

Customer Reviews

I love this latest cd by Macy Gray.

If I wanted to listen to people talk in-between songs, I would just listen to the radio.

Not only is this a great covers cd, it's a great cd PERIOD! Macy really outdoes herself on this one. She shows pure artistry in recrafting these songs. Like many of her other recordings, this one definitely deserves recognition come Grammy time! Macy deserves so much more respect and support than she gets! BUY THIS CD!!!!!

This CD is amazing! I was skeptical at first because it was a cover cd, but was completely surprised! She truly does give each song new life and makes them her own! The songs are all showing the darker side of Macy, but the skits keep the album in check and show off her playful side. Finally we know the real Macy Gray!

I didn't realize at first that the album was a bunch of parodies. Yeah, I should have guessed by the title 'Covered'. After hearing a snip-it of 'Here Comes the Rain Again' I knew I had to have the whole album. I didn't know much about THE AMAZING, THE GORGEOUS, THE GIGANTICALLY GENIOUS GENIOUSLY GIFTED, HOT SWAG, MACY THE GREAT before this album, but this is one funny lady! Are you boys down in the Castro following this DIVA? If not, fork over your $5 and give this lady some recognition. You won't be disappointed!

Covers are probably tricky territory for any artist/musician... Macy Gray pretty much killed it on this cover album making each song her own while not distorting them into something completely unrecognizable. This was extremely well done and shows how well rounded of an artist she is. Her tastes are quite good as the original songs are from a multitude of genres. $5 well spent.

I bought Macy Gray's first two CD's when they were first released and casually followed her over the years and thought of her as more of a great live act, personality and musician, but forgot how great she is as a worthy recording artist, who's voice is still refreshing and relevant.

"Covered," in my opinion, is the return of Macy Gray the serious recording artist and musician. Listening to this CD, you wouldn't think that you're listening to covers, because she made each track her own, with top notch musicians backing her up. "Creep," "Nothing Else Matters," "Maps," and "Bubbly," are stand-outs and if these songs weren't recorded and made famous by the original artists, they could easily pass as Macy Gray's own original classic timeless pieces. Her interpretation and dedication to each of these songs is evident in her emotional and authentic delivery.

But, what makes this CD even more outstanding and Grammy worthy, is the overall production and packaging. Macy Gray included lots of comedy on this CD--highlighting what most people love about her--Macy's comical genius side. The little skits in between songs, add to the Macy Gray Experience. The decision to include, "Smoke Two Joints," really put the icing on the cake as far as comedy. It seems like a personal declaration Macy was making, that most would believe. I'm no fan of narcotic use or glorification of any kind,but I have a good sense of humor and I think Macy's take on the song is funny and genius given her persona.

Overall, this is one of the best put together CDs, I've listened to in sometime and am rooting for Macy to win another Grammy for it and get the due respect and recognition she deserves.

I hated, hated, hated this album. What the hell happened Macy?? I love her old stuff and have ALL of her albums and was very excited to hear she's coming out with a new one. But THIS ONE - AWEFUL!! What's with all all the talky snippets between songs. What this hell is that?? If I wanted to listen to people talk in-between songs, I would just listen to the radio. Please come back to us Macy!!!

This album is almost like " performance art" I love love it but to let you know, it's not song# 1 etc. I always wait for Macys new release since she is so busy doing 10 things at once being creative on film with Lee Daniels etc

Keep on singing those great tunes.
Love you baby!!
TC
