Album Of The Week: The 25th Anniversary Of Liz Phair's 'Exile In Guyville'


Liz Phair

This week's Album of the Week is a hugely respected indie record by the indomitable Liz Phair. Her debut album 'Exile in Guyville' was released on this day (June 22nd) in 1993, and became Matador Records' most successful record at that time. It's still a huge influence on more contemporary alt rock artists.

Considered by many to be a groundbreaking piece of alternative rock music, and indeed one of the greatest albums of all time, 'Exile in Guyville' was a raw piece of prolonged teenage angst by a 26-year-old guitarist from Chicago. Co-produced by Brad Wood - who also worked on Placebo's debut album - it raised Matador's profile significantly with the endless critical acclaim it would go on to receive.

Cherish Review


Weak

Don't tell the other movie critics I said this, but once in a very great while I see an independent film I wish could have been a big budget Hollywood studio picture. Sometimes a good idea, a lot of enthusiasm and a shoestring budget just aren't enough.

Take "Cherish," for example. This creative but contrived and gimmick-driven comedy-thriller is about a geeky, socially inept young beauty (Robin Tunney), who is falsely accused of a hit-and-run and incarcerated in her own sparse and funky loft while awaiting trial, monitored by one of those electronic ankle bracelet programs.

Going stir-crazy because she's the kind of girl who can't stand to be alone (of men she says "I don't think I'd go out with so many if any one would call me back"), Tunney spends the movie trying to outwit the system that will set off an alarm at police headquarters if she wanders out of the bracelet's range.
