Gun Shy Trigger Happy
I last heard from Jen back in 1994 when her album Cockamamie brought us the radio hit “Better Than Nothing.” Of course back then she was Jennifer.
Although she has new backup musicians, her sound is still basically the same. She smoothly moves from hard-edged rock to more mellow material, always with her unique vocals grabbing our ears.
“Go Ahead” is the song screaming to be a single. It closely resembles her previous effort, but it’s different enough to warrant a listen. The best tune on the CD is “If I” with its jangly guitar hooks and infectious drum rhythms. Jen is one of those artists who deserves to be much more successful than she is. Fate alone seems to be holding her down; it is certainly not a lack of talent.
