I had no idea who Liz Phair was until somebody sent me "Why Can't I?". Falling in love with it, I did some research and discovered all about this fantastic female artist I had no idea existed until about a month ago.
Out of the four albums she has released up until now, this is my favourite. Granted, it's different from her previous stuff, all the songs now have a chorus, a structure and more layered and polished productions. But still, this only defines the gorgeous melodies that Liz weaves through her music, and I can definitley say there is not one song on this album that I dislike, whereas on her last three there's always one or two that I have to skip through.
Her lyrics are at their simplest here, but she hasn't lost her touch. It's evident from this album that she's having fun. She's gotten down and dirty and deep in her previous work, but here she just wants to rock out and say the things that might not keep you up at night, but will definitley put a smile on your face.
From the rocky opener "Extraordinary", the beautiful "Little Digger" and the hands-in-the-air epic "Love/Hate", this is an album for all the music fans out there that want a few guitars with their pop as well as some biting and humourous lyrics.
Go Liz!

I must admit that Liz's classic album "Exile In Guyville" is alot to live up to and it seems that her latter efforts haven't quite done it until now.
People critise this album because of this fact but at the end of the day its been 10 years since that album and she has evolved. Teaming up with producers The Matrix (responsible for Avril Lavigne's "Let Go") this is pure rocking material! the first track "Extraordinary" is my favourite on the album and you'll find yourselves listening to it over and over again. other hightlights include fellow single "Why Can't I?", "Rock Me" and "Digger"
For me though, I love great lyrics and this album has plenty: In the song "Extraordinary" Liz sings of how she feels with people's perception of her. A good example of this is the line "I still take the trash out, does that make me too normal for you?"
"Rock Me" is about going out with a younger guy and the freedom it brings with the line "Your record collection don't exist, You don't even know who Liz Phair is"
"Digger" is about dealing with the fact she is divorced and her son sees her with another guy and how he feels "you keep repeating the line, my mother is mine"
Finally, there is a still classic Liz with the explict lyrics and the great song H.W.C. (Hot White Come) which is played by US rock star Pete Yorn
This album is definetly my favourite of the year so far and although it is more polished than her previous albums, in this day it needs and be and thankfully none of her exceptional music and lyrics are lost in the process

Do you Love Liz Phair? If so you proabably love Liz's seductive, clever, and "in your face" lyrics of her three past albums. Sadly this may mean if you love her music and not her you may not love "Liz Phair". Liz Phair (the person) has decided to try out her spot in the mainstream pop world of music today. Tracks such as "extraordinary" and "why Can't I" have been in the top 40 countdown at times in 2004 and have catchy tunes that make the lyrics easy to remember; As well Liz has equired the help of the matrix in writing a few of the tracts on this album, this wrongfully has lead to critics claiming her to be like Avril Lavinge. Liz Phair even in pop is very original, her lyrics to songs such as "H.W.C" (Hot White Come) are provocative and definately not childish as Avril's lyrics are. In the tracks that Liz has written herself such as "Firewalker" and "Bionic Eyes" similarities between these lyrics are the lyrics of her past music prevails, infact Firewalker's lyrics can be interupted as Liz telling us that we might not recognise her as she explores these different genres when she sings the words "Yes I can grow, inspite of all you know. You might not recognise me tomorrow." I gave this CD 4 out of 5 stars because I believe Liz underestimates her own song writing abilities, but as far as a pop album goes "Liz Phair" would be a 5 star CD.

Yes I'm a fan of her early work and thats how i got to know about her music - so it was a shock to hear that she had gone for the big time and enlisted Avril Lavinges producers to make her sound more commercial. her move to a major label meant she had to polish her sound and create some single suitable for airplay - and at the end of the day make the label some money.

After listening to her own material - the label, Capitol, werent too pleased and offered Liz a ton of money to work with the producers of Brtiney Spears and Avril Lavinge known as The matrix in order to write some singles.

for me, overall, - it doesnt fit - a 36 year old mother with a sound aimed at 16 year olds.... who was also previously famous for cutting lyrics and off beat, lo/fi music. Its such a radical u-turn it needed to pay off.

On this outing it feels all mixed up - is she posing as a young, sassy song writer, a teeny bop princess, cult indie songwriter,a mother exporing her new life or arena ready rock goddess..? The music and lyrics touch each of these images but don't stick to any. There is no denying she will make new fans through the crisp, polished sound and chunky riffs, but in a number of places on the album i also felt myself cringing at what was going on.

On the upside there are 3 great songs - the first 3 on the album - 'Extraordinary' 'Red light fever' and 'why cant i'. All 3 are on my MP3 and manage to stay there!

Ironically enough, for me - a fan of her earlier lo fi work - they are the songs penned by The Matrix producers....and its her own work that I can't get into? Hmm what does that say!!!??

Did she know what she was getting into with Capitol records? Was it a deliberate shot at the big time..? who knows - anyway judging by the fact she has released her latest album through her website for download only - it would suggest that major labels arent for liz after all.
