One of the Most Underrated Artists of Our Time
showdates | Los Angeles, CA | 08/15/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lisa Germano was dropped from 4AD in 1999 and, to many of her fans, it was a devastating blow -- especially coming off what some consider her best work to date.Slide was our pick for the best album of 1998. It combines all the ingredients that make a great album: songwriting, artistry, and innovation. Although this isn't Top 40-ready music, it's Germano's most accessible piece of work to date. Lush, flowing melodies are interlaced seemlessly with lo-fi, muffled tones. Her voice is as melancholic and inert as always which suits her passive yet passionate writing style. This is Germano's most inspired work since 1996's Happiness (Capitol) and it also features her most hopeful writing ever."
Very addictive

"What a soothing album. I heard "Wood Floors" from a friend and couldn't stop listening to the song. When I wasn't listening to it, I found myself humming it. The song reminded me of twirling around in my socks on the hardwood floors of my parents' house when I was a kid. It made me want to be 8 again and skating around the house in my socks. The rest of the album is really nice. I've been listening to it at work practically all day today. I just put it on repeat and let it go. Some of the songs make me want to slow dance with my honey. There isn't anything extra original on this album, but it's a good album that makes you feel like there is something extra original about it. I'm currently borrowing this album from my boyfriend, but will be adding it to my collection soon."
Give the woman a big hug!

"I can't say how sad I am to hear that she has stopped making music. I can't really understand it...I love her previous work very much. She's the first american artist that I've ever come to love VERY much.
I think this is her best album so far, cause it is more varied in a way..or maybe just better balanced? Geek the girl comes second right after Slide. Hard to say why..cause I think they're both her best albums. Geek the girl just touches something else. Maybe it's songs like Wood Floors and No Colour here that make Slide a little better. I'm just happy she's done as much music as she have. But I hope from deep within my heart that she hasn't given up on us or herself. Please Lisa...come back! You can't just leave... :("
