exile in terriblemusicville
la liz is releasing another album and scored an interview with the times (at this point, is it just out of pity or morbid fascination that people still talk about her albums?). FUCK - i hate moral dilemmas. do i buy it? not buy it? should i ignore her? should i keep waiting for her to get through this phase? should i just admit that it's over?
i can't decide if this is the best or worst thing i have ever heard:
"Conceived as another song-by-song response - this time to Stevie Wonder's 1976 album, 'Songs in the Key of Life' - it tacked away from that concept to become an album that gives solace to whoever shows up. There are singles, throwaways and full-on confessionals - enough to satisfy or embitter various parts of her fan base, depending."
i hope her song-in-response to stevie's "As" does not include lyrics ready-made for a very special everwood moment, or, somehow worse, a pandering and ridiculous ode to swallowing.
