'Exile in Guyville,' 15 years later

Full story: Chicago Tribune
Now that Liz Phair 's "Exile in Guyville" is being repackaged on its 15th anniversary as an indie-rock landmark, it's easy to forget what a ruckus it caused when it first came out. Full Story

I'm actually listening to the Album now. I often listen to the song feck and Run, I like the lyric "I can feel it in my bones, I'm gonna spend my whole life alone". Its an amazing album and deserved much more attention then what it got. It would be a controversial album even if it was a new release today, with songs like Flower for example which is clearly about sex and I can't think of a more explicit song lyrically. Dance of the seven veils is probably my favorite song, I like her sweet falsetto in the chorus and the lyrics:

I only ask because I'm a real c**t in spring
You can rent me by the hour
I know all about the ugly pilgrim thing
Entertainers bring May flowers

Definitely one of my favorite albums from the 90's. Many more people should listen to it.

An all-time classic record, memorable even though I haven't heard it in over a decade.
