Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
In one of those fits of Sunday AM sloth, I watched a show about Lisa Marie Presley on VH1. I came away with two conclusions 1) She's pretty entertaining and unpretentious in an interview 2) She is a good singer and as a songwriter, has a great pop ear 3) She or whoever does her song arrangements is really fucking good. It's commercial pop, but there's no cheese - all of her songs sound like you could bang them out live with a band to good effect.

So I downloaded the album and it's surprisingly good. She sounds a little like Liz Phair, and at times like Toni Halliday. Moody, dark pop. I was bugging LK about it on AIM today and figured I should get it out of my system here.

Anyway I may break down and buy the CD, because the MP3s sound really grainy and overly bright.

i don't know ...

all i know is i was watching the telly, there she was, singing songs that sounded pretty good, and when i downloaded the album it had really good songs. She has in interesting voice and production wise it's pretty unaffected. It's like she has some musical talent, and did a good job putting together a showcase for it. Your mileage may vary.

and tomorrow, you can check http://www.psychiatry.uiowa.edu/~kent/lisa_marie
and decide for yourself.

I'll have to check. I saw her live on Regis Philbin's show the other morning and I just wasn't feeling it, although admittedly I wasn't giving her 100% attention.
