    Chan Marshall’s third cover album is a song-for-song recreation of Bob Dylan’s famous “Royal Albert Hall” concert, and she sounds as rich and vivid as ever

  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Does exactly what it says on the tin, but in the process adds another story to Dylan's tower of song, and showcases Marshall as devotee, student and messenger

    Marshall's wise, loving performances strengthen her reputation as one of her generation's most gifted interpreters

  4. 8.0 |   Mojo

    If the crackle of original Dylan electrifies Marshall's voice, she finds her own phrasing, both robust and reverent, as she ringmasters Ballad Of A Thin Man's mystic forces, or brings a limpid empathy to Like A Rolling Stone. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Song-by-song, both the set list and arrangements stay true to the original hits

  9. 7.0 |   American Songwriter

    As a one-off project, this is an enjoyable romp, especially for Cat Power fans. Chan Marshall applies her stamp on material she loves, the live atmosphere enhances the enthusiasm, the audio is crisp and the show successfully accomplishes what it sets out to do

  10. 7.0 |   Uncut

    For the acoustic half, she genuflects a little too readily, but the limberness of her voice hades new contours for the songs; the electric half takes a while to ignite, but "Like A Rolling Stone" is gorgeous. Print edition only

  11. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    A faithful tip of the hat to a master and his most revered performance. If one approaches the album from that perspective, there is much to be treasured here

  12. 6.0 |   musicOMH

    While Chan Marshall is no stranger to the cover version, this isn’t so much a covers project as a faithful recreation of the ‘Dylan goes electric’ moment
