Bad Man's World
Jenny Lewis is the heartthrob, former child actor who fronts Rilo Kiley. On this solo effort, she employs many famous and talented friends to contribute to lush pop songs. The good news is the songs stand up well and the all-star accompaniment blends fairly well. Elvis Costello guests and several musicians from the Impostors appear. Genre hops from country to blues to pop with many tracks backed by strings.|
All FCC Clean
1. (2:54) Somewhat repetitive piano driven number builds as it adds strings
***2. (3:47) w/ M. Ward on guitar. Sweetly sung melody over acoustic guitar.
3. (8:45). Bluesy electric guitar and driving beats accompany soulful vocals. Apparently, Jenny’s dad wasn’t the best.
4. (3:41) A veritable torch song with piano strings
5. (3:50) Heavy on the rhyming, this acoustic guitar driven number with a harmonized choruses tells Lewis’ tale of early drug use.
***6. (3:34) Driving, bluesy rock song with and surf guitar feel and strong chorus.
7. (4:33) Soulfully sung ballad with piano strings.
***8. (3:34) w/ Elvis Costello. Catchy pop number with Lewis and Costello trading verses.
9. (3:07) Lewis and female back-up signers (Jenny’s sister, Zooey Deschanel) belt out this soul tune over strings and piano chords.
*** 10.(5:27) Piano blues, gospel chorus then a southern fried rock meltdown.
11. (4:09) Really heavy sentiment that goes over the top. Skip it.
