Reseña de álbum

It's been many years since she learned the truth "At Seventeen," but the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist — who tackles guitars, keyboards, upright bass, and even banjo here — is still a sharp lyricist who makes her points amid a stylistically diverse playground. Thank God her lyrics don't run as ridiculously stream of consciousness as her liner notes, because part of the fun here is imagining her tongue firmly planted in her cheek as she expounds on various themes.

The child of a music teacher, she studied piano as a child and, drawing influence from Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday, and Odetta, wrote her first songs at the...
