  • On the basis of her angst-filled 1996 hit "Mother Mother," Tracy Bonham was awkwardly shoehorned into the "angry young woman" camp by a media machine eager for another Alanis Morissette. But the singer/songwriter and classically trained multi-instrumentalist has always been more talented and subtle than the association would suggest. Here, Bonham has created her most emotionally immediate album, without sacrificing any of her characteristic sophistication.
  • These 12 wistful meditations on love and life showcase Bonham's throaty, distinctive voice and her ear for interesting musical juxtapositions. Throughout the record, sunny 1960s-influenced pop melodies belie wistful and self-searching lyrics about abandonment and unrequited love. "Take Your Love Out on Me" and "I Was Born Without You" are dead-serious laments wrapped in playful, ersatz-Middle Eastern forms, and the world-weary, cabaret-like verses of "And the World Has the Nerve to Keep Turning" culminate in a stirring, gospel-tinged chorus. When she sticks to more straightforward song structures, Bonham creates moments of powerful beauty, as on the indelible melody of "All Thumbs" and the soulful, minor-key ballad, "Wilting Flower."
