The choice of covers on the Divine Hammer EP is infinitely better than the Aerosmith one on the Cannonball EP. Hank Williams' "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love With You)" may not be as good as their Beatles and Who takes, but like the cover of "Drivin' on 9," on Last Splash, it proves again that they've got the right cooking if country is the dish. But again, the other two tracks here are barely worthy of time spent on your stereo. Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis tries his hand at harmonizing with Deal on a new recording of the LP's "Do You Love Me Now Jr.?" with irritating results (like mixing sherbet and sh*t), and "Hoverin" is just a herky-jerky piece of nothing.
