By A Customer
This review is from: Become What You Are (Audio CD)
I seem to have spent probably too much time on amazon reviewing, and browsing, juliana hatfield albums. Infact, I seem to have written several hundred word reviews of a couple of albums, but my obsession with juliana hatfield music is justified because she is a brilliant artist, and any way in this case, my review will be short(er) because it is so easy for me to describe Become what you are, possibly my favourite album of all time. There is an atmosphere, or feeling, behind the music- slightly sad, very youthful, like juliana is managing to capture exactly what it feels like to be her. Although the album has a lo-fi 90's indie- rock sound, I think it would appeal to lots of people, whether they like that music genre. Its nice to see a female artist be herself and sincere, not having to be artificially confrontational, flaky and pathetic or just a big slut. Juliana sings about supermodels, fictional sisters, saving baby birds, past presidents, revenge on rapists, small town blues, addictions and playing spin the bottle. I like this girl. Don't you like the sound of this girl? Maybe you won't love this album as much as I do, but its great music and you'll get a real sense of a time, a place, and being in someone elses head.

Just as a side note, President Garfield isn't about a past president. It's about Henry Rollins.
