Published December 04, 2003.Mandy MooreCoverage (Epic) Mandy Moore’s goals are noble. On Coverage, she attempts to connect her generation with the AM hits of the ’70s. Unfortunately, she can’t sing. While this has meant virtually nothing to the other performers in her genre, the songs Moore has chosen feel lacking under her country club delivery. They also suffer from the producer’s desperate attempts to keep things hip by putting record scratches over Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move” and getting Mandy to announce “This is new wave” before breaking into Blondie’s “One Way or Another,” you know, just so people don’t get confused. —Matt Charlton
