Guitar One & Rockrgrl Present Women Who Rock
Although her brilliant 1993 disc Exile In Guyville proved to be a tough act to follow, Phair’s colorful language and fresh approach to writing about relationships provoked hours of critical discourse on women writing songs with bold sexual imagery. Ironic, considering how slight her indiscretions are compared to male hip-hoppers, for example. Anyway, Phair, though not as productive as we’d like her to be, proved skillful at seizing stereotypical rock machismo and spewing it back from a women’s perspective.
