This is without a doubt her masterpiece. And I should know, I've been a fan for years.

Liz Phair's low tech, high emotion debut caused a sensation upon its release. Critics praised the low-fidelity sound and bitingly honest lyrics. She's commented the album was a song-by-song reply to the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street." Not an exact match but can be seen as a commentary to the Rolling Stones. No. 1 for Spin Magazine's 1993 year-end critics poll and Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll. No. 15 in Spin's "100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005." Ranked no. 328 on Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of 500 greatest albums of all time. Catch Phair at her gritty beginnings.

One of the greatest albums of all time
Landon McQuilkin | Austin, TX | 03/30/2009

"If you are under the age of thirty, you might think of Liz as some kind of pop star that may or may not be incredible. Listen to this gem, though, and you just may realize that Liz created, with her first outing, one of the most important albums in the history of music, much less the '90s. This album, put simply, MATTERS....more than you can imagine....more than I am even realizing at this point. I've cherished it for years and with each passing day i realize more and more how much it transcends this thing we call reality. Liz may have never created an equal to this album, but this is comparable to saying that Van Gogh never topped Starry Night and Michaelangelo spent himself on that one chapel. This is art. This is more than art. This is a masterpiece. This is the hand of god channeled through one of his or her hottest mediums...media? I don't know, but I do know that Liz Phair is the closest thing to a deity in this day and age."
Phair's best album...no question

"I bought this version as a gift. I do not know anything about the new songs, or if they "cleaned up" this version of the album. However, if you know Liz Phair as the "mega-pop" woman (or if you think of her as a version of Gwen Stefani), then you don't know Liz Phair--and you've heard nothing like this!

This is an album with songs about a woman trying to find her place. She's angry, sexual...and listening to this album will make you wish she wrote these songs about your time with her.
