This album simply has some of Polly's funnest songs. Big Exit, Hustling, and This is Love are simply fun, adrenaline-pumping (if not sexually arousing in the case of This is Love) songs that are better than most of the so called thrashing rock that is played on our radio stations. I think some of the dissent against this album comes from the fact that it's so "pop-rocky", well, maybe so, but if it's done well, so what? And yeah, This is Love is not T.S. Elliot when it comes to poetic lyrics, but it's just a FUN song no matter who wrote it. So many people are overly enamored w/ the depressing side of Polly Jean, and I loved Is This Desire? too, but you take the songs for what they are. The guitar work of "This is Love" also straddles the line between minor and dominant tonality, and that helps to give it a grindy, seductive sound. "We Float" has a beautiful vocal line, and is a good ender to the album, solemn yet resilient, a hope earned through suffering that is perfectly reflected by PJ's passion and melody. A good solid rocking album w/ enough maudlin pieces to satisfy that fix, I'd still rank "Is This Desire" ahead of it, but not by much, and I'd take this album over "Rid of Me" and "To Bring You My Love".
