This album has some very good covers on it. The songs are given a modern twist, some artists stay pretty faithful to the original songs feel, some are quite adventurous in their changing of the songs, whilst others go half and half, changing some elements and keeping others. This is not an album for those looking for the energy of the Smiths in their hayday. You'd need to buy a Smiths album for that, but, all in all, the covers here are very good.

Not sure why so many people hate this, there are some GREAT covers on here.
Greg Laswell's 'Half a Person', for one, is a wonderful take on the tune, along with Sara Low's 'Well I Wonder' and gorgeous Tanya Donelly on 'Shoplifters...'.
Great to hear modern versions, by other artists, covering tracks we all know so well.

Come on, give it a chance, as far as the dreary tribute album goes, this is in the top half of those lists :-)
