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!!!!!

Sleepily laying on my couch one nite drifting off to Letterman when on comes Macy Gray, she sings "Here Comes the Rain Again," made famous by 1980's tech pop diva, Annie Lenox...Macy completely made it her own, I sat up-awake now. Letterman who can be a prickly critical dude (recalled when Annie sang it decades ago on his show and he ridiculed her and back up singers because they were guys in drag). She sang beautifully too but he obviously was a homophobe. Back to Macy, her version was so minimalistic singing at the Mic in such a soulful, sad way, you just felt her suffering and feeling the song and I felt it too and said, WOW!!! I got off the couch, ran to a pad and wrote out this title. Bought that wknd and played it to death, then I misplaced it for almost a year - ticked off and not wanting to buy it again..months ago, in my basement, I located it finally, yeah! I play it weekly especially when the rain comes and youre just feeling it...she does a bunch of hits here from the past and makes them hers. there's one song that ridicules the music industry that is great and how she needs to chg her persona and deliverance of songs. (Im sure it was a true exp for her too). Buy this and enjoy, so many great tracks in only Macy's style. Worth the $, cheaper too if digital album is downloaded. Im a CD fan still and older but am converting. :)

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!!

Remakes always suck! Mainly because the people that do them try too much to emulate certain things that made the original great. But when a producer or artist reinterprets the art honestly, from the core out, instead of trying to catch the exact same moment of the original, the result is sometimes very refreshing and special. That is the case here with Macy Gray's beautifully "Covered".
Much like Johnny Cash's remake of NIN's "Hurt" or Gary Jules' remake of Tears for Fear's "Mad world", there are some beauties in this album that makes it totally worth listening too and owning.

Thanks to Amazon's suggestion I found out about this great album!

Macy like never before, you are able to appreciate the rich texture of her voice and her brilliant sense of humor.

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 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!

This is Macy Gray's 6th C.D. and in my opinion one of her best. On this C.D. Macy sings other peoples songs and shows that she's truly a creative force . Her song choices come from artist like The Eurythmics,Radiohead,Metallica,Kanye West&Nina Simone to name a few. This might sound strange but, she able to put her own interpretation on there songs and make them sound new and original. This C.D. will surprise some people who think of Macy as only having one style singing. If you want to hear some interesting song interpretations Uncover "Covered". Savoy Blue
