Format: Audio CD
This CD is a seminal work in women's serious rock that has stood the test of time beautifully. Just remember that it pre-dates all of the artists that were inspired by it in the following years. So many "all-time great" CD's from the past end up sounding ubelievably dated upon more recent listing, but Exile in Guyville sounds as fresh and relevant today as it was back in 94'.
The songs on this album are solidl written and arranged- from F**k and Run, a powerful song that conveys the lonliness of meaningless quickie relationships while at the same time being incredibly tight and guitar-centric. The most incredible part of this song is how she manages to convey the singers pre-conceived notions of what a real relationship should include- like "letters and soda's." Liz manages to present it as something she's idealized since a small child, yet is disillusioned that she'll never have- and it works.
Stratford on Guy mixes harmonies in an original way that has still never been duplicated. This song is truly a classic and may be the most original and innovative on a already classic CD.
Divorce song manages to convey how quickly and easily a marriage can self-destruct over the simplest of issues. It's real, it's honest and it hits the nail right on the head.
Strange Loop also manages to encapsulate the "I'm tired of fighting" feeling you have when a relationship has has finally and once and for all fallen dead apart. The guitar work at the end of the song manages to convey this feeling and it is pure genius.
With this album, Liz managed to deliver an unfortunately rare combo- genius musical arrangements along with incredibly relevant and powerful lyrics. The result is a classic work that will stand the test of time indefinitely. If you haven't heard it, you owe it to yourself to listen to it.

First, let me say that the album is worth purchasing even without the bonus tracks. Not that the new songs don't have their own appeal. The instrumental is the kind of sad guitar wizardry which makes "Shatter" such a favorite. "Say You" is a reggae influenced dreamy swoon which mixes Phair's quirky humor and sexy delivery. The remastered album itself is as amazing as ever. Sounding fuller, richer and more affecting than the original mix, the new album makes Phair's vocals more immediate and the instruments, more distinctive. The album's influence cannot be denied. Long Live Liz!

Format: Audio CD
When I first got into Liz Phair, I was a gigantic mainstream pop geek. I only had her notorious mass appeal to mainstream audiences, the self titled prior to buying this. On first listen, I found it unenjoyable, tunes lacking a great melody yadda yadda. On repeated listenings, my music tastes shifted for the greater good and I became more appreciative of not only this album but music itself. Liz Phair became my favourite artist (what felt like) overnight. Guyville seemingly deals with every aspect of relationships: the loneliness even when you're in a relationship; the disappointment in your partner; commitment issues and of course, love. All of the songs are utter delights but the best song that sums up this album and one of Phair's best is the heartbreaking Shatter.

Highlight: Shatter

Exile in Guyville is a raw record, sung and played in a way that at times it almost seems like it was recorded in a basement. But that is one of the things that make it a unique record. Liz Phair sings about boys and sex, mostly, with her amazing, at times cracking voice in a way that can shock some people, in a way that his hers. In songs like "F*** and run" she's explicit. In quieter songs, like "Canary" or "Glory", although the subject is pretty much the same, there's a different kind of approach. In my opinion, it's a must-have, along with her second, more polished record "Whip-Smart". A window onto Liz Phair's world of post-teenage obsessions.'
