Come On Social - Epic 1999
Amy's rocking "Go" sets the scene right from the start. With Emily's ballad "Soon Be to Nothing" the mood calms down for a while. The catchy country tune "Gone Again" comes next. One of Amy`s best songs on the album.
With Emily's "Trouble" things begin to rock a again. Great vocals. The serious "Sister" is a classical Amy Ray type song. "Peace Tonight" is a highlight. Catchy and optimistic. "Ozilline" written about/to Amy grandmother is a traditional type tune. Ozillene actually introduces herself in the beginning of the track.
The next two songs are written by Emily; "Cold Beer and Remote Control" is by far the better. Catchy melody and funny sarcastic lyrics. Could have been a hit record. Sheryl Crow joins in here! "Compromise" is probably my least favourite - hardrocking punkrock-type of tune. "Andy" is another fine Emily ballad.bLast track is Amy's indignant comment the the execution of Faye Tucker; a very moving number.
Why Emily's beautiful "Philosophy of Loss" was only included as a hidden track is really a mystery to me. Along with "Cold Beer and Remote Control", "Peace Tonight" and "Gone Again" this is an outstanding song.
