5.0 out of 5 stars Who can resist when Macy comes a flirting? 6 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and strong delivery... 28 Mar 2012
By sunder
Format:Audio CD
* * * 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

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album but come on Amazon...the price! 22 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

Absolutely brilliant. Great covers with a Macy touch and some witty sketches too. I have been listening it to it constantly for the last few weeks. If you are a Macy fan, you will not be disappointed.

By P. Jerome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 12 May 2012
By jabaker84 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchased it for her VOICE; Love it for her HUMOR! ;-)~ 10 Sep 2012
By Paul M. Gregory - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars CAN A COVER ALBUM BE MORE GOOD THAN BAD? 4 Jun 2012
By Human Microcosm - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.
