3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Fan Dance, May 13, 2005
This review is from: A Boot and a Shoe (Audio CD)
Fan Dance was a change of pace from Sam's earlier CD's but it was still a good CD. The earlier CDs had much brilliance marked throughout, I listen to them today and ask how this musician can be so overlooked? But I am not sure why she is taking the Fan Dance style so far? The music is so stripped down, it begins to lack luster. Certainly there are some good songs here, but much of the CD sounds the same. The background music changes very little cut after cut that it becomes a little boring after a while. It worked on Fan Dance because the songs were interesting, the good melodies were still present but it seems missing here. Sam has always been out of the groove as far as commercialism goes, but it seems she is going out of her way to make sure she never becomes popular. This CD actually was in the top 300 albums in the country the first few weeks it was released. She needs only to get 1 SONG played on the radio someday and she could still become an alternative pop star (a TRUE alternative pop star) because her music is truly alternative and unique. It goes over most peoples heads. But she needs to make something a little more appealing and catchy then what's on a Boot & a Shoe. I personally would love to see her direction go back to Cruel Inventions or Martinis & Bikinis. Those albums were AWESOME!
