AllMusic Review by

Certainly meant as a novelty more than anything else, Magnificent Seven Series: Indie Translations of Usher is a collection of -- you guessed it -- seven Usher songs covered by no-name indie rockers. Perhaps if the artists had more recognizable styles the album would seem a little more pertinent, but as they don't, their versions, while occasionally passable (Mark MacMinn's "Caught Up" for example), can be hard to get through, even if you really are both an Usher and indie rock fan.
