5.0 out of 5 stars Serenades and sorrowful songs
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

Anyone who doesn't already have Lullaby, I urge you to listen to it for some of the most beautiful, raw and swoonsome songs written in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serenades and sorrowful songs, 13 July 2007
This review is from: Lullaby for Liquid Pig (Audio CD)
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

Anyone who doesn't already have Lullaby, I urge you to listen to it for some of the most beautiful, raw and swoonsome songs written in recent years.

All Lisa fans must get the re-release for the bonus cd, featuring fantastic recordings and reworkings of many of her best songs. What struck me most about the live recordings is how the tempo is quickened and some of the darker songs (It's A Rainbow, Candy) are transformed into something similar but new, more joyous and mellifluous. How many other artists could turn lyrics like "I am here, nothing much, going nowhere", "Hate will grow into someone you know" into a serene singalong?!

All this AND a supremely impassioned "From A Shell" with sonorous organ chords instead of piano, cascading like caresses from the most sensuous lover you've ever had.

This review is from: Lullaby for Liquid Pig (Audio CD)
Lisa Germano went under the radar after the relative commercial failure of her 1998 album Slide. Her deal with 4AD ended and she was minded to never make another record, instead working as a clerk at Book Soup in Hollywood, writing songs in her spare time.
Although she occasionally worked in a supporting role on projects with the likes of David Bowie and Neil Finn it was four years before she went into the studios to work on a new album of her own. Lullaby For Liquid Pig was the result, with her skewed humour, inimitable style and voice like a welcoming warm bath happily intact, and up there with the best of her unique work. Although her subject matter can be stark, the listening experience is far from depressing, just as listening to the blues can be uplifting, thanks to a high watermark of quality control throughout its 36 minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars Drink What You Said Liquid Pig!, 6 Jan 2004

This review is from: Lullaby for Liquid Pig (Audio CD)
This latest offering from the depths of the dark is the most soothing to listen to of Lisa's albums to date. Most of the songs revolve around an acoustic guitar, a piano, Lisa's soft and emotive voice and a heavy dose of computer effects.
This album is, like Geek The Girl, one you'll need to listen to as one whole piece as one song effortlessly leads into another and various little hooks are used in different songs like a character in a play. Stand out tracks for me are the catchy but so very gentle "From A Shell", the hauntingly angelic "Paper Doll" and possibly my favourite track to date "All The Pretty Lies" which is so angry under the surface. As a whole album as one piece though, there is nothing to fault it on.
Dark is still the meaning of the day, but once again it is so very compelling and makes for excellent listening. A top notch album!

3.0 out of 5 stars Rhapsodies In Blue, 7 Jun 2003
This review is from: Lullaby for Liquid Pig (Audio CD)
When wallowing in your own gloom gets you down let Lisa
Germano show you how to make misery an art form.
Germano's gathered many fans and is admired by Bowie,Gabriel
and Neil Finn and Lullaby For Liquid Pig is a dozen downbeat
tales of reflection and mourning that continue where 1998's
Slide finished.
These songs suit a melancholy mood.The piano lament of
Nobody's Playing pouts about loneliness and Germano
grieves,"no one comes near",in a hushed tone reminiscent of
Kristin Hersh or Tanya Donelly.
Please check with your therapist first before listening to
Liquid Pig.This disturbing song with it's unsettling
whispered lines and out of sequence bewitching beat could
soundtrack The Shining.
Pearls is another hushed lullaby with poignant piano and
Candy has a skewed Eels feel which isn't surprising as
Germano has written for,and previously performed with,the
band.
There's more mournfulness on Dream Glasses Off but brightness
breaks through on From A Shell when Germano sings,"it's a
buzz,it's a buzz..." and resembles the aching beauty of Lori
Carson.
Drugstore fans will appreciate It's Party Time which is
almost cheery and Into The Night is another gorgeously moody
tune.
If Lisa Germano was a film director she'd rival Lars Von
Trier.Lullaby For Liquid Pig has a Scandinavian starkness
that lays Lisa's troubled soul bare.These occasionally
dissonant,but often simply lovely songs,ask the listener to
befriend her during her dark days.Real rhapsodies in blue.
