A straight-forward alternative-rock classic, so honest and brave that it stroke the whole musical world back in 1993. Although there is nothing really outstanding in this huge collection of melancholic, passionate tracks, it is Liz Phair's open-hearted narratives that shine through in the overall experience, as the singer/songwriter displays a strong spirit that will take no more of the Guyville abuse. Her versatility and compelling songwriting style leave no doubts: Phair is a complete artist.
