    The ones that hit the bull's eye vastly outweigh the shank shots. [17/24 Aug 2012, p.112]

    While there are some lackluster renditions of Fleetwood Mac super-hits the gutsy reinventions of deeper tracks like "Silver Springs" (Lykke Li), "Straight Back" (Washed Out), "Storms" (Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Matt Sweeney) and "That's All for Everyone" (Tame Impala) remind us of what set Fleetwood Mac apart from the beginning: stellar songwriting.

    If you don't already know the Mac, treat this as your way in. You won't be coming out in a hurry.

    This tribute album isn't strong enough to be awarded its own two-prong crown (the Fleetwood Mac equivalent of 10 stars), but it's got enough surprises and excitement to keep the genre interesting.

    Pleasant as the diversity is, the finished products are what you'd get from any modern tribute album. [Sep 2012, p.94]

    Just Tell Me presents 17 cover versions of differing quality which don't gel as a cohesive listen, but it's not without standout interpretations.

    Where Just Tell Me is good, it's great, with these moments of greatness mostly coming from the elders on the compilation.
