4.0 out of 5 stars trashy and very american..., 10 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Whip Smart (Audio CD)
i discovered liz through amazon, like a few other artists... i bought w.c.s.e first liz's 3rd album then after becoming addicted i bought this album and after collecting them all i can discribe this album as the trashy one, i love it, i makes me want to drive across america in a caddy, or maybe sitting in a bar late night drinking... it's the cowboy boots i never owned
technically i see it as ythe older sister of guyville liz phairs first outing, it's kinda a wlittle wiser and older and some of the songs i could see on the record but they are older. i think what makes the album have that rawness is the feel of the music being recorded almost live, as if liz and a collection of musican pals sat around in soem dusty hot studio drinking jack daniels and jamming some cool southern rock,
and i love it
lyric wise i feel that unlike guyville where the focus was mainly on alot of men and trouble with relationships this album veers towards alot of liz's own feelings about men, about maybe having children,about maybe what to do in the future...
guyville i see as what happened before the record whipsmart i see as what is happening now and how all the events that happened beofre have effected her now...
in short, this album is damn good, slightly more produced than guyville but alittle more relaxed. not so much angst, i feel liz doesn't need to scream about what has happened because she did that in guyville now she can simply let you in on secrets and talk things through
nice record-recommen it if you like kirsten hersh or raw sheryl crow
