AllMusic Review by

Tribute to the Smiths: Cover Star is a lackluster tribute to the Smiths, finding 15 bands neglecting to inject energy or originality into these songs, making the project forgettable and of interest only to the most ardent Smiths collector. Included are Rancid Polecats covering "London," Candy Planet covering "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby," True Tone covering "Paint a Vulgar Picture," and I Buried Paul covering "Handsome Devil."
