    Jocular and enjoyable to flip through, but the nagging feeling that leaks through is that this collection is little more than a respite for Giant Sand until Gelb returns from the bunker with enough fresh material to record a real new album. [#216, p.63]

    Mind you, you're still left wondering why they made a covers album. [Mar 2002, p.96]
  3. Q Magazine

    He tackles unexpected covers to pleasing effect. [Mar 2002, p.120]

    Superb collection of covers, performed in a haphazard, easy style. Brings a smile to my face.

    I did not like it personally and thought that it was boring.
