From Brad1770
I've owned this album since its release in 1993 and can say 25 years post and numerous listens it is definitely over rated IMHO

Don't get me wrong it has some great moments such as opener "6'1" , "Help Me Mary" , "Dance of the Seven Veils" the superb "Never Said" which is my favourite track here , the jaw dropping "Flower" and "Stratford-On-Guy" . All great tracks that are worth checking out

Unfortunately the back half of this album looses pace with some average inclusions , I always skip by "Explain It to Me" , "Canary" , the awful "Girls! Girls! Girls!" , "Shatter" and "Gunshy" with the remaining tracks ok at best

Oh and the cover is a ripper with Liz given licence to express her self in a Photo Booth , there is something uninhibited I just love about it

Good but far from great

Still sounds as fresh today as it did back in '93. This a great album full of punchy rock'n'roll with a dose of punk. Gritty and great. Excellent.

From Ashmark
I love Liz Phair. At her best she makes song writing seem so simple. At the same time, she pushes the limits with her lyrical content. This is a very good album, probably her best. My favourite songs are Divorce Song, Never Said and Johnny Sunshine.

I like "Fuck and Run", but the overall music is plane boring doesn't matter how great its lyrics are.

I love P.J., Tori, Alanis, Fiona and Bjork. So I feel like I'm supposed to love Liz, or at least this album (the rest are a severe drop), but I only like it. It's not awful, it's actually above average, and the concept/theme she has running through is not only clever but powerful in the time it was released for female singer-songwriters. But if you take the album song by song it becomes clear that the music is good but not amazing. Definitely a few stand out songs, and it's a good album, but overrated in indie-circles. Don't slam me with unhelpful votes if I don't like the album as much as you - this review is sincere and not an example of 'unhelpful'.

Much better than I was expecting. Indie grunge, pretty much no punk here. Some very ear pleasing harmonies and chord progressions.

It took me a while to sink into the vocal and lyrical styling, but I like Liz's voice and her intensity.
