Lisa Loeb, for me, can be a little bit hit and miss. For example, 'Cake and Pie' was a masterpiece, with a few very poor songs on. 'Tails' was a showcase of ho-hum music with two or three outstanding pieces. For me, this album is more towards the Cake and Pie end of the spectrum. This is a very good album overall. The songs are as follows:
Window Shopping - an opening track like none I've heard before. Normally Lisa open with a superb track, but I'm not sure this time. The lyrics are amazing, but the song overall is a little too folksy for my taste. 7.5/10
I Control The Sun - this is much better! Much more the Lisa I learned to love on 'Cake and Pie'. Innovative lyrics which, while they aren't the deepest ever, they're well formed to the song. Poppy/rocky, and very good. 9/10
Hand-Me-Downs - quite easily the second best slow song on the album. Much better lyrics than the previous two in this song, which is why I like it so much. Downbeat, but somehow uplifting. 8.5/10
Fools Like Me - this is more like it! Nice indie-pop that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Very, very good. In fact, the second best song on the album! 9.5/10
Try - whoops! And after such a promising start. Too slow for me, and although it carries a tune unlike another one of the songs which we'll come to, it is only alright. Nice enough. I always seem to compare it to Nelly Furtado's song of the same name, and it just doesn't compare. 6/10
'Diamonds' - this song blows me away, absolutely. I love this song, and I've only heard it two or three times! Not a grower by any means, you hear it once and love it. Poignant lyrics that make me smile, I love this song. What more can I say? 10/10!
'Would You Wander' - this song is very good, my favourite of the slow songs.

I heard some of the tracks from this album (I Control the Sun, The accident) previewed when I saw Lisa play at the Jazz Cafe this time last year.
In that-pared down situtation (just Lisa and her acoustic guitar) she, and they, shone. The strength of her voice and the simplicity of the songs worked perfectly.
On record, however, they come across a little cloying and over-produced. Lisa Loeb in the studio seems to rely on a slightly fey voice which is not really hers.
That's not to say that this is a poor album at all. It's generally strong and 'Diamonds' in particular stands out. There are certainly no bad songs here.
I can't help wishing, though, that she didn't let the temptations of the studio overcome her (great) natural talent. An album worth buying, but its studio-bound nature keeps me from giving the five stars a live recording would get.

Loeb at her best.

If you are a Loeb fan, and how could you not be!, then this album is for you.
