Under the Covers

1 rating: 1.0
An album by Dwight Yoakam

A rather mediocre and often puzzling outing for the multitalented Mr. Yoakam. While the idea ofUnder the Covers--Dwight trying his hand at songs by the likes of the Beatles, Them, the Clash, Roy Orbison, Ray Davies, and the Rolling Stones--sounds good … see full wiki

Solid Effort, But Not His Best

  • Jul 10, 2003
First of all, let me say that this is a good album, Dwight deserves every bit of the three stars I gave this disc. It showcases Dwight's ability to twist and meld different styles of music to create a solid, distinctive sound. It doesn't, however, give us any original material(after all, it IS a COVER album). I appreciate Dwight's effort, and I understand that he has cranked out some pretty amazing material and deserved a little rest, but I can't give a 4-5 star rating on an album of covered material for the simple fact that it is a cover album. I should say that this is one of the better cover albums I have listened to.
Dwight does just fine on all of the songs on this album, especially "Here Comes The Night," "Claudette" and "Wichita Lineman."
This is a good album, but if you're just starting to listen to Yoakam, buy another one of his albums to get an idea of just how brilliant he is. I recommend "If There Was A Way," a pivotal album in his career, or any of his greatest hits selections.
