CHRISTINE LAVIN

Happydance of the Xenophobe

2007-09-20

Sigh…well, you see, I do really like Christine Lavin. But, this is her 18th release, and it just seems like I’ve heard all of these before. Her writing is witty, the old acoustic guitar plunks and plinks with verve and glee, and the songs are all very topical. And when she sings “Tom Cruise Scares Me”, well, c’mon, who could disagree with that? As usual, a sprinkle of Ms. Lavin will fit into almost any set and provide a little kick. Like I noted above, however, all of these just sounded far too familiar. Kindly Old Mr. Tilapia
