Synopsis

Amazon.com
Poor Brenda Kahn. Her first two albums predated Liz Phair and Lisa Loeb, but it's hard to listen to Kahn's third set, Destination Anywhere, and not hear a combination of those artists' worst tendencies, plus an added dose of pretension. Like her insufferable pal, Jeff Buckley, Kahn thinks she's a serious poet, but she's gotta do better than images of "schoolyard shamen" and descriptions like "pretty as a Harlem whorehouse." Musically, her flat, monotone vocals wear thin even quicker than Phair's, and if there was a hook in any of these 11 tunes, I didn't hear it. --Jim DeRogatis

Incredible Dark Rock Album
02/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The great "lost" Brenda Kahn album. Bandied about because of contact scuffles with her record company, this album pretty much got lost in the shuffle - even though it is easily one of the best works of the nineties. If Atlantic had the smarts to release this one, it could have soared - Brenda is at her hard-rocking best here, delivering her clever, intense, and moving lyrics alongside a scorching rock soundscape. This is full of choice cuts, but don't miss the poetic rocker "Night", the Jeff Buckley duet "Faith Salons", the pop-punky "Spoon", and the could-have-been-a-huge-hit-single "Yellow Sun". This is a great album - one to grab if you can get your hands on it. (Interesting fact: Bob Dylan's favorite Brenda Kahn song, "Too Far Gone", appears on this album.)"
