October 27, 2003 – Mandy responded to some e-mails from TRL viewers after her appearance on the MTV program last Tuesday. One asked why she decided to do an album of cover songs as opposed to new songs. “The idea for the cover record came about just by experimenting,” Mandy explained. “I wanted to do a couple covers on the album and by the time I finished compiling a list of potentials, I knew that I wanted to do a ‘fun’ record of all of them.”

    This is very good for Mandy. To come out at #14 with no promo, released and did this project with her own money and not her record label, plus this is a cover album, that is really good. Mandy has talent, and her personality will keep her around forever because she is doing what she loves regardless of how little or how much success she has had.

    HOORAY FOR MANDY!! A great chart debut for “Coverage.” It’s one of the most exciting pop albums to come out in a long time. Of course more congrats to Clay, for having an excellent second week! He’s the most popular pop singer in the states right now!! AWESOME.

    I wish Mandy Moore all the success with this album. This girl can sing. I will admit that she is to Christina Aguilera or Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey but this girl can sing. With the right producer Mandy Moore can have a success career

    Clay Aiken is one ugly inbreed. Who are you retards buying this crap… I won’t get too upset because I don’t think Aiken will be around long. Right now he is in minute 2 of his 15 minutes of fame. The sooner he goes the better.

    “Coverage” is really good, Mandy can REALLY sing. I’m so happy she did so well on the Billboard chart, but what is more important is that “Coverage” really is an amazing album. It’s so good.

    I gave a short listen to Coverage and it was alright. Maybe I need to listen to it again. I do like Mandy though, and I hope it sells well
