    There's plenty more good and bad.

    75 tracks from as many artists, ranging from the trad (Pete Townshend's "Corrina, Corrina", the upbeat old-time of Carolina Chocolate Drops' "Political World") to the rad (Sussan Deyhim's "All I Really Want to Do", Ke$ha's pleasingly pared "Don't Think Twice…").

    Cut half the roster on Chimes and you've got an amazing lineup of Dylan's peers and admirers.

    Some of the best covers here are of less overtly politicized Dylan songs. [Feb 2012, p.95]
  5. 60
    The success of the album is ultimately dependent on the listener's familiarity with the original songs.

    A largely redundant – and frequently downright woeful – endeavour.
