This album was a bit of a mistake, it turns out. I didn’t enjoy listening to it the first time round and when Mr C asked after it, he was surprised that I hadn’t liked it. Then it turns out this wasn’t the specific Liz Phair album he’d wanted me to listen to, so next week I’ll be doing the correct one! On the second listen, this was better, but I’m still not sure I was totally sold. It’s a kind of mix between Alanis and Sheryl Crowe, but not as good as either of them.
