Sandi Thom - The Covers Collection (Album Review)

Wednesday, 13 November 2013 Written by Helen Grant

Sandi Thom's 'The Covers Collection' has Stevie Nicks’ smouldering angst running right through it, which shouldn’t be a surprise given the Scottish singer-songwriter’s ‘obsessive’ devotion to Fleetwood Mac.

It's a simple, timeless collection that feels like being wrapped in multiple layers of silk, producing flashes of joy even in moments of sorrow. 

Blurring the lines between blues, rock, folk, pop, Americana and country, ‘The Covers Collection’ houses Thom’s take on Nine Inch Nails’ Hurt, Guns N’ Roses November Rain, More Than Words by Extreme and Eva Cassidy's Songbird, not to mention versions of Bonnie Raitt's I Can't Make You Love Me, Alannah Myles' Black Velvet and Aerosmith's Dream On.

This record is as close to a page-turning best seller as you'll get, maintaining original twists on the source material and highlighting the honest, raw nature of Thom’s voice. The more she reveals of herself through her choices, the more in tune she becomes.

With five albums now strapped to her belt and forthcoming tour dates in the UK, Europe and the US, ‘The Covers Collection’ could be a pivotal moment in Thom’s musical development.
