Paste gave it 88%July 2, 2009
Rating is anticipated, as I haven't heard it yet (7-21 release date). I read a review in Paste Magazine, whose reviewer gave it an 88 (very high for their reviewers; one reviewer gave the new Wilco CD a 74%). Back in the day, I enjoyed the songs 'Go All the Way', 'All Good People', 'Maggie May' & 'Hello, It's Me', among others on this CD (what - no 'Hold Your Head Up'?). I bought 'Under the Covers, Vol. 1' used (hadn't heard of it before I saw it) & have enjoyed that CD, including their cover of the Beach Boys' 'The Warmth of the Sun' (Susanna & Matthew create perfect harmonies) - shouldn't the original be on this summer's reissue of Beach Boys' summer songs? That CD includes two Neil Young songs - 'Everybody Knows This is Nowhere' & 'Cinnamon Girl'. It's safe to play when you have guests whose musical tastes you don't know. Critique of Vol. 1? Too poppy + not sufficiently original enough for some - some songs sound very similar to the originals. However, I plan to buy Vol. 2 this month (boomers rule!).
I would recommend this to a friend
