I really like the new vid "Everything to Me" although it sounds like she's sticking with The Matrix sound for good. I wish she'd do like half her album in her indie style and the other half with The Matrix sounds. It's be hard to make an album where both would flow, but it fits Phair and I think she could do it. With her entire album produced by the Matrix, she sounds more like a sell out. I can't blame her for wanting to make more money, and she did pretty well. Can't blame her for wanting to make even more this time around, but looks like it will become a trend.

I liked her last self-titled one because the lyrics were catchy and good. This one sounds like it might be kinda with decent lyrics, but the ones in this song somehow just don't hit me like Little Digger, Why Can't I, and Red Light. Ah well.

Oh yeah, I also love Whip-Smart personally, and May Queen isn't bad.

I think she lost it. I got this album off the net, (Is there anything it can't do?) because I was seriously worried about it since I hated her self titled.

I don't like this album aside 3 tracks.

I don't like her anymore.

I bet you didn't expect to hear that from "LizPhairLover"

I just heard the entire album too. I'd need to hear it more to make a good opinion, but most of the songs feel bland from a first impression- lyrics AND music.


I forgot to mention that "Rock Me" on the self-titled is a great song too.

Oh Liz, darlin', you've lost it.

Maybe I should get my login name changed to "LightYears".

As I have "Exile In Guyville" now, and I really like it, what would you recommend me buying next? I have nothing else than "Exile In Guyville" so far. Maybe buying "Whip-Smart"?

Guyville is her best. The rest of her work can't hold a candle against it, but if you want to give it a try, Whip-Smart is probably the best choice. It's a bit like Under the Pink by Tori Amos after she released Little Earthquakes: more of the same, more professionally recorded but lost some of the magic that made the first one so special.
