Album Review

Linda Perry's music is both subtle and bombastic, sweet and aggressive, and intellectually and sonically challenging. After the singer/songwriter quit her job fronting mega-platinum rock outfit 4 Non Blondes in 1994, Perry spent some time underground and eventually recorded In Flight for Interscope Records. Producer Bill Botrell (Sheryl Crow, Susanna Hoffs) helps Perry on the 1996 release as she digs deep into very personal subject matter that could get overwrought without the softly detailed arrangements and mixes. The queen of '90s ultra-depressive mope rock, Lisa Germano deepens the disc's dour construct with her mournful violin. There are a couple overly personal moments on the In Flight play list, like the opener "In My Dreams," but Perry leans on her expressive vocals to keep the dangerously sincere material interesting. "Success" borders on the excessively self-analytical, but Botrell's juicy production and a crushing hook elevate the track beyond its weepy predisposition. Other standouts include "Life in a bottle," "In Flight," and the Grace Slick duet "Knock Me Out" that features the legendary Starship vocalist in extremely rare form. A fondness for fellow '90s female mood rockers Germano and PJ Harvey will aid listeners in appreciating the sallow cast of In Flight. But with just a little patience, any fan can enjoy the tenderness that coats Perry's introspective material. [The enhanced version includes bonus CD-ROM features.]

Customer Reviews

Booming vocals and Original writing

Must have if you've enjoyed Linda's voice from 4 non-blonds or her writing on the more recent albums she's produced. The sound maybe a tad dated since the albums original release was in 1996.

Great album.

I picked this album up about 10 years ago on its original release. Great lyrics & strong vocals. I still listen to it today. Unfortunately, she is producing instead of releasing more music. Her other solo album "After Hours" is also worth checking out if you can find it.

Excellent album buried in the marketplace

This album, originally released in 1996, has excellent songs, production, arrangements, and delivery. Produced by Bill Bottrell, it still holds up 10 years later; a classic rock album worth buying for almost every song. It's too bad that 10 years ago, short sighted record executives and inexperienced artist management derailed what looked like the start of a promising career for Perry as an adventurous solo artist of the highest caliber in Rock.
