Teetering somewhere between studio album and compilation is Covered in Gold, the 13th studio creation from long-running, peace-metal power poppers Enuff Z'nuff. Rather than a handful of new original material from the group, listeners are treated to 13 cover songs, ranging from a loose reading of Nirvana's "All Apologies" to a raging hair metal sendup of Smokey Robinson's "Tears of a Clown." The band also tackles tunes by Queen, Prince, the Beatles, and a host of other widely divergent artists. For good measure, the band throws in a live, unplugged version of one of their best-known hits, 1989's "New Thing."
