Editors’ Notes

When scrappy Chicago singer/songwriter Liz Phair released her debut album in 1993, the mainstream still considered “women in rock” a niche category. This earthy, clever collection—conceived, Phair claimed, as a response to the Stones’ Exile on Main St.—was a revelation. Phair shaped sinewy guitar lines and conversational vocal melodies into songs that were candid, catchy, and unabashedly crass, with a sly feminist sensibility that defied rock ’n’ roll convention. It still sounds ahead of its time.

Customer Reviews

A classic

It's a travesty that there is only one review for Exile on iTunes. This is the album of my adolescence and early adulthood. Liz Phair is one of the best lyricists I've ever heard in my life, her songwriting is catchy and off-kilter, and her voice is totally distinct. This album is note-perfect from start to finish and it has withstood the test of time. There are quite a few artists and bands I adored at 14 that I no longer listen to at 31. That is not the case with Liz Phair. I've definitely grown up with her and continue to find comfort and joy in her work. If you're familiar with Liz because of her hit, "Why Can't I," check out Exile and prepare to have your mind blown by its raw honesty, vulnerability, sense of humor and bravado.

Shelf life

This album stands the test of time. Her stuff that followed was ok, but this, this album was really close to perfect.

pure talent.

this album is the result of an actual artist wanting to share her work with the world. no catchy rhymes or kicks. it's a must have in any collection. one of my favs for sure!

Growing out of the American underground of the late '80s, Liz Phair fused lo-fi indie rock production techniques with the sensibility and structure of classic singer/songwriters. Exile in Guyville, her gold-selling debut album, was enthusiastically praised upon its 1993 release, and spawned a rash of imitators during the following years, particularly American female singer/songwriters. For her part, Phair wasn't able to fully break into the mainstream, even with the support of the press and MTV....
