Reseña de álbum

On 1993's Happiness, Lisa Germano delivered on the promise that her debut On the Way Down from the Moon Palace suggested she had. Both more ambitious and more accessible than her first album, Happiness swaths her ethereal-yet-earthy melodies in a rich, shimmering production courtesy of Malcom Burn. Originally released by Capitol, 4AD re-released the album once Germano switched labels; the label's head, Ivo Watts-Russell, remixed certain tracks like the folky dream pop of "Destroy the Flower" and the scathing "Sycophant," bringing out the songs' melancholy, wistful tendencies. However, even the Capitol version of Happiness has plenty of both of those qualities. Just as Germano mixes the delicate with the down-to-earth in her music, she uses her fragile voice to express uncomfortable, sad, and occasionally funny sentiments, as on the bitchy, jaded "Bad Attitude," where she sings "You wish you were pretty/But you're not/Ha ha ha" with equal amounts of cynicism and idealism. With "The Dresses Song," she turns what would be a flirty pop song in anyone else's hands into an ambivalent compliment: "You look at me so fragile/You make me think about nothing/It feels so good like that." Happiness also expands Germano's musical palette, ranging from jangly pop like "Puppet" and "Energy," to the brooding, droning rock of the title track and "Everyone's Victim," to the haunting, proto-trip-hop instrumental "Miamo-Tutti" (named for one of Germano's cats). The spooky, vulnerable final song "The Darkest Night of All" is a forerunner of the dark, riveting territory she'd cover on Geek the Girl; as a whole, Happiness finds Germano moving toward a remarkable emotional honesty, which makes the album all the more captivating.

This is one of Lisa Germano's peppier albums and is beautifully and catchily done. It was not first originally released in 1981 as the description says however; it was released first in 1993 and reissued in 2000. Her voice is rich and has a solid, subtle power and presence about it. Her lyrics are thoughtful but not obscure, and the music is quietly hypnotic. Lisa's albums take a few listens to really sink in, but once they do, you'll be hooked! Highly recommended for those who like Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Kate Bush, etc.

I'm no expert, but...

This album is an inspiration! Some of my absolute favorite Lisa Germano songs are here, specifically Puppet and Destroy The Flower. You owe it to yourself to branch out a bit and try some stuff that may seem a little bizarre at first. These songs really grow on you and Lisa Germano becomes a part of your musical identity. You'll get hooked if you try it, so if you find yourself in the near future spending a long weekend with a stack of Lisa Germano discs, don't act as if you weren't warned...

Biografía

Nacido/a: Mishawaka, IN, 01 de enero de 1958

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s

Lisa Germano is one of those artists who's never belonged to one core crowd. Doing the big rock thing wasn't important to her, although time spent playing with John Mellencamp in the late '80s and early '90s opened her eyes to the ever-changing ways of the music business. Germano...
