Liz Phair — Soberish

Phair might be partly a sentimental pick here, as I’ve been a devotee since the week Exile in Guyville hit in 1993. But I don’t need to cite her generations-long influence to praise her first new album in a decade and her best this century. The onetime indie-feminist enfant terrible addresses middle-aged concerns, with as sharp a mind as ever but a more forgiving sense of perspective, informed partly by her once-controversial early-2000s excursions into major-label pop.
