Album Review

There are at least two types of folk singers that concern themselves with politics. The first type sings protest songs against wars, religious fanatics, and the World Trade Organization. The second type sings about broader social issues, like how advertising affects one's self-image and the pace of contemporary life. Cosy Sheridan falls into the second category, cheerfully expounding on PMS, body piercing, and Barbie dolls. The first cut, "Ladies' Room," is a happy tune about bathroom etiquette, and will serve as sort of a litmus test of whether the listener is really ready to look at the world through a woman's eyes. "Multiply Pierced" explores the joys of placing rings on a belly button that is connected to an ever expanding belly, while "Barbie" is a letter to Mattel with a few suggestions about how to make the popular doll into a real woman. Another standout is "Bikini on a Billboard," a humorous attack on how advertisers connect sexy, young girls with everything from beer to cars. As with her other satires, she makes her point through colorful, playful descriptions, not through preaching. Although Sheridan specializes in satire, she has also written a number of serious songs such as "Demeter's Lost Daughter" and "Dorothy and Eve." Both of these songs combine contemporary elements with ancient myths, creating unique points of view. It would be a shame if audiences viewed Anthymn as an album by a woman for other women. Surely it has a thing or two to teach male listeners, and besides, it's a fun album, rich with humor. For those who enjoy penetrating lyrics sang by a charming voice, Cosy Sheridan should be just the ticket. ~ Ronnie Lankford, Jr., Rovi
