Good! Even though it's full of cover songs, Ivy totally made it their own.

CD Reviews

Splendid!

"This album of covers is an absolute joy, like ice cream on a summer day. The sound is spacey, melodic, and just a little twee, without leaving a saccharine taste in your mouth. Ivy do such a good job interpreting other people's songs that you'd think they were the band's own if you didn't know otherwise."
Lush??

"After briefly hearing "Undertow" (from Long Distance) on a SciFi Channel repeat of the series Roswell, I was instantly hooked. I did a search for "Roswell music" on google and was rewarded with a couple of sites that listed music in each episode. I noted that Ivy was present more than a couple of times. The reason I was hooked? It sounded like Lush. Being a Lush-head from the beginning of their career, and lamenting their demise, I was entranced by the similarity of Ivy to Lush.
I ended up purchasing all the Ivy I could find, and this is the first one to arrive at my door. I was not disappointed. If I was forced to compare this particular album to a Lush album I would say it is closest to Lovelife.... but it does have its differences, particularly since Guestroom is a bunch of cover songs of other groups. The first song, "Let's Go To Bed", a Cure song, hooked me right away. The rest reinforced the hooking, but including "I Don't Know Why I Love You" (Guy Chadwick), "Only a Fool Would Say That" (those Steely Dan guys!), "Be My Baby" (Phil Spector), and "I Guess I'm Just a Little Too Sensitive" (Edwyn Collins). I just cannot wait until the rest of these Ivy albums arrive! I have already listened to Guestroom 4 times in a row... bottomline--if you like Lush, you will find Ivy very pleasing."
