Liz Phair's strange new album

    Was listening to my iPod the other day when a track from Liz Phair's new album popped up. I thought nothing of it when I uploaded it along with a couple dozen other new albums. I figured it would be full of a lot of guitar-driven, possibly angry rock just like all her other stuff.


    It's not spoken word, but that's in there.

    It's not dance music, but that's in there.

    It's not rap, but that's in there.

    It's not dialogue, but that's in there.

    One thing's for sure -- it's not guitar-driven, angry rock.

    I'd let Liz Phair do horrible, terrible, unspeakable things to me.

    She wrote a review of Keith Richards's book in the Time Book Review yesterday that might have been longer than the book itself.

    Read that. Or should I say skimmed it. It was more book report than book review.

    Saw her play in a coffeehouse in 1993.

    She is one of the sexiest women on the planet. Just something about her.

    Are there any songs about graphic fucking or drinking cum? That's really her calling card.

    You're thinking of Reba.

    That Reba.
    She's a firecracker.

    Makes me sad what happened to Liz Phair, arguably one of the great female songwriters of her generation. She probably could have had a steady, critically-acclaimed career that was appreciated by a niche group of fans. But instead, she tried to catch mainstream success and outside of "Why Can't I," it was a disaster that only alienated the people who actually liked her music in the first place.

    At least she's writing music now that attempts to be smart and personal, even if it's awful. I doubt she has another Guyville in her, but at least she's not trying to be a cross between Britney and Sheryl Crowe anymore. Somebody's Miracle is one of the worst records of the 2000s.

    Yeah, crazy that she'd abandoned those 15 scary obsessed fans to try for mainstream success and millions.

    15 fans? Do you even know who Liz was before reading this thread?
