This is simply the best acoustic album I've ever heard. It's got intelligent lyrics written with a writer's ear for an unusual phrase, honest emotions that range from playfulness to despair, and accomplished musical settings, from delicate string arrangements to dramatic acoustic rock.

The first song 'Out Of My Element' starts, "Then we were young and foolish, now we're older but we're still fools. Then we knew what absolute truth was, now we wonder what we shall never know". You immediately know this guy has something to say. Before you think you're about to be bored by someone living only in their head the song goes on, "I undressed her like a virgin, laid her down like a seasoned whore". This guy also lives in his senses.

Time and time again you'll find a heady mix of sensuality and reflection, a full-on, rock-and-roll taking part in life...as well as hesitation, incompleteness, wondering.

If you don't like 'Eat At Godot's' I'll eat my hat. If you do, check out his rock band, The Bad Examples.

Ahhh......Shades of 1994....Freshman Year.... 17 Feb. 2005
By PrinceVultan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Eat At Godot's" holds a special place in my heart. It reminds me of my freshman year of college. I went to a beautiful private school and Ralph Covert and The Bad Examples were the band playing the traditional weekend night concert that kicked off the school year. I went to see them and had a wonderful time. Gorgeous sunset, cool breeze, new friends, alcohol, freedom, and many hot women made for a thrilling experience. Now then, to the CD.

A friend of mine purchased this at the concert and Ralph and the guys were cool to talk to. They were very friendly and were happy to tell you about the music on their various CDs. Anyway, we listened to this throughout my freshman year and it grew on all of us. You have to order it at waterdog.com or ralphcovert.com I believe. Each song has a different meaning and there is not a weak moment here. The CD kicks off with "Out of My Element" with the great line "I undressed her like a virgin/laid her down like a seasoned whore"....! The next song, "Wild Young Things" is probably my favorite on the CD because it makes me think of the beginning of my college life, and my growing affinity for Budweiser and trashy broads who put out. It reminds me of a cool early fall night at college, where everything is still green, the nights are wonderful, the wine is excellent and the women are plentiful and available. It makes me think of missing my then girlfriend and wanting to cheat on her, too. God bless you Ralph. You made my freshman year worth living. I look back with a nostalgic air and I think of "Eat At Godot's". Buy this CD. It is excellent and though I cannot guarantee that it will have such an impact on your life, it is worth giving it a try. 5 Gigantic Stars. To Ralph and The Bad Examples....Thanks Guys!!!

Every song is a gem 13 Aug. 2003
By Joseph Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a rare collection of songs that work both as individual tunes and as a whole album. There's not a bad song on the disc. Superb lyrics are coupled with paired-down, yet melodic compositions.
It's just a shame that 90+% of listeners will never experience this man's work.
Amazing song-writing ability... 13 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ralph Covert does it again with the release "Eat At Godot's" - a masterful, fun and very easy to listen to record. His amazing song-writing ability, combined with crafty guitar and soothing vocals make this album one of the best out there. Favorites are When The Radio Plays Your Song, Anna Brigaux, Cold Shivers, and Out Of My Element. Give this record a listen and you'll see why Ralph Covert is one of the most amazing performers out there.
