"Despite the fact that 10,000 Maniacs have rarely released a bad song, get this single for "Sally Ann", which is one of the most beautiful and haunting songs I've ever heard. Natalie's beautiful voice and Rob's amazing guitar playing are just two reasons why this song is so good. All of the other tracks are great, but "Sally Ann" makes this single worth getting."

"This is packed with three cover tunes that show just what the Maniacs are capable of. In fact, it could be argued that their cover of "Don't Go Back To Rockville" is better than REM's orignal recording. "Sally Ann" is haunting with echoing guitar stylings from Rob Buck and a lovely viola part from Mary Ramsey. She also plays a fine violin on Morrisey's "Everyday is Like Sunday," which again, gives the original version a run for it's money. These songs are as good as any on "Our Time In Eden." Don't miss this little sonic treat!"
A great single to add to your collection...

"Even if you aren't a diehard 10,000 Maniacs fan, I think you will still appreciate this single. I love every song on this single and I must of played it hundreds of times (easy to do when there are only 4 tracks). I don't have a favorite song from this CD, but I have never seen the cover Sally Ann on any other single or album like I have with the other songs. I'm not sure why because I think Sally Ann is just as good as the other tracks."

"10,000 Maniac's cover of REM's "Don't Go Back To Rockville" is worth the price of this single alone. The band offers an upbeat version of the classic, with Merchant's voice sounding full of melancholy and sorrow. This is the only cover i've ever heard that is actually better than the original!!! The title track, "Candy Everybody Wants" is also a delight....The only thing missing is the band's cover of Tom Waits' "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You" which was available on the CASSETTE single, no longer made That was probably the band's greatest cover song....Check this out for their cover of Morrissey's "Everyday Is Like Sunday""
