CD Reviews

Good Single, as a CD, may be for fans
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Liz Phair produced the best pop album of 2003 with her release of "Liz Phair." Although that is a great feat, she may have dissapointed some fans with the more mainstream glossiness of her newest album. "Why can't I?" is definetly a Liz Phair song, it has just been polished up a bit. What really made the album worth it to those snobby indie purists and even casual fans was the hidden comeandgetit internet EP. Basically buying Liz Phair gave you rights to your own downloadable copy of "comeandgetit". "comeandgetit" contains 5 songs
1. Jeremy Engle
2. Bouncer's Conversation
3. Hurricane Cindy
4. Fine Again
5. Shallow Opportunites.It is a gem of an "album," maybe these songs weren't deemed worthy by the capitol records staff, but thank god it was released. It is some of Liz Phair's best work yet. Quirky, thoughtful, intelligent, and interesting; if not mainstream. Buying "Liz Phair" for "comeandgetit" is definetly worth it.Now for this single Cd. Basically it is an ultra rare single released in certain places blah blah blah. What counts now is that you get two songs from "comeandgetit" pressed onto an album.
For fans, it is cool to have these songs on a real cd instead of a burned copy, plus you get alternate cover art. For casual fans
you get a great single and some very rare materiel.Although all three songs are great, the Cd may only be for "hardcore" fans who want a "real" copy, or fans who do not have access to a computer with CD/r burning abilities; as the songs are free for download after you buy "Liz Phair"Enjoy!"
Get It For The EP

"Liz is not new to being a pinata for critics, in fact she received a lot of backlash for songs like this single, but if it weren't for songs like this I wouldn't have been introduced to her old stuff, and the critics ignore this fact, and the fact that Liz's vocals have improved a great deal and lyrically it's still our Liz, just a different musically driven Liz. You can get these 2 songs, "Fine Again" and "Jeremy Engle" off her self-titled album, which also includes three other songs that didn't make it on the album (which is a shame since they're some of her best stuff) and if you're a die-hard fan who can't get enough of the lovely and talented Liz Phair, then this is the cd for you."
I love this song!!!

"This is a song about the moment when you fall in love. Liz Phair's poignant lyrical ability really captures the charm of falling for someone. Catchy phrases such as "It's an itch we know we are gonna scratch/Gonna take a while for this egg to hatch" really make this an adorable and fun song."
