    The album closes with a hushed but comparatively straightforward version of Eddie Heywood’s “I’ll Be Seeing You,” which was immortalized in the 1940s by Billie Holiday — completing yet another stellar addition to the Cat Power canon, which is formidable no matter whose songs she’s singing.

    Stellar. ... The album boasts Marshall’s usual selection of interesting and unexpected covers. This time around, she’s curated an intriguing and moody mix of modern pop, vintage country, and classic rock, highlighted by recognizable songs.

    ‘Covers’ feels refreshing and invigorated.

    The widest ranging of any of her covers collections yet, Covers pushes beyond the habitual melancholy that has marked much of her work. In bold colors and vivid relief, it illustrates her talent for radical reinvention.

    As Marshall proves time and time again, you don’t need original compositions to express how you’re feeling; Covers exudes confidence and hints at a new-found peace. It’s a delightful listen.

    Covers is a treat for fans, and reaffirms that Marshall can find the Cat Power -- as well as new meanings -- in the music that moves her.

    Not so much fresh takes on old favourites, Covers is more like watered-down versions of semi-hidden gems.

    What a graceful song! The voice from Cat Power is a true blessing, and it gets me in touch with my sensation. I'm quite blown away.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Really nice work as always by Cat Power! She is thinking out of the box and she bravely cover songs no matter the genre. She doesn't loose herself at all! Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey's covers are the highlights for me. Expand
