I too thought this album over priced, so resisted buying it, but it has since come down a little, and could these covers be as sublime as her own work?
Well catching her live at the Jazz Cafe, made me dip my hand in my pocket, which is how it should be. It fits in my collection with ease, and brings back memories of standing at the corner of the stage enthralled by a gorgeous Macy fluttering her lashes at at me, while acting out each song as only Macy can. My wife demanded I leave this CD in her car, when are Amazon going to offer discreet packaging?

* * * and half

"Covered" isn't just a collection of familiar songs given the Macy Gray treatment -- it's a frequently funny journey through what makes Macy Gray Macy Gray, with celebrity guests visiting to offer advice (like JB Smoove advising she wield a sword on-stage, or Nicole Scherzinger saying she should sing more Alanis Morissette songs).
Fortunately, all of it's enlivened by Gray's ability to (mostly) deliver strong performances that don't sound like they've been labored over. With her keyboard-led live band in tow, Gray mashes Eurythmics' "Here Comes the Rain Again" with Radiohead's "Creep", Kanye West's "Love Lockdown" with Nina Simone's "Buck".
Her choice and range of material to cover are astonishing, always yielding songs that are perfect for her (and her audience), like "Smoke Two Joints", done earlier by Sublime as well as the Toyes. J. Bush

I have no idea why a basic audio cd is almost £20 on here...when I first saw the price I assumed it was a special edition or had a DVD with it or something, but no, it's the plain old single album at over £19. Not that it isn't worth it, it is worth every penny [if you are foolish enough to spend £19 on an album these days]
Gray's voice is as wonderful as it ever was, if not better. Her choice of songs to cover are very wide ranging from Eurythmics to My Chemical Romance to Kanye. All brilliantly realised and sounding effortless.
Other reviewers have commented on the skits on the CD. While these are funny for a couple of times, repeated listens are likely to drive you round the bend. I've deleted them from my ipod so I just get the songs.
Overall, this is what a 'covers' album should be... an artist's own interpretation of the songs, not a note for note pastiche. Here Comes The Rain Again never sounded so lovely or so sad. It is a 5* album but I've only given it 4* here because of Amazon's price.
