Liz Phair (album)
Liz Phair is the self-titled fourth studio album by Liz Phair. It was released on 2003-06-24 on CD. The album was a pretty big departure in style from her first three albums which were more lo-fi because Phair used several pop producers to alter her style due to a strong demand from her publisher. This was very polarizing to fans and critics alike, however, it was the pop style that allowed Liz Phair to expand her popularity enough for me to learn who she was, and allow me to become more familiar with her earlier work which I otherwise would probably never hear about. For certain, the album sounds far more like a teen pop album than what would be considered appropriate for a woman in her mid-30s, but a pop-sound doesn't mean pop-content. Several of the songs have the socially unacceptable content common with Phair exploring topics such as cum facials, older women hooking up with teenage boys, and a mother's fear for her child after a divorce.
I own this album on CD.
