    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.

  1. Cover Magazine evokes both the campfire-spook ambiance of 1995's BBQ and the subtle beauty of their 2000 masterpiece, Chore of Enchantment.

    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]
