Honey's solo debut is a thirteen song ride through pop, rock, and
alt. country territory. It's exactly what you'd expect from a singer
/ songwriter who's been around the scene so long (primarily with her band, Clover
As far as pop music goes, Amy Honey's got everything down
straight. These are goofy, melodic tunes, coupling good
songwriting with a friendly sense of humour. Tunes like
"Lousy Mom" and "Sabbath!" (the latter of which is
a hard rock tribute) are silly little ditties, but ones that are bound
to make even the most hardened listener smile. Often the jokes
aren't all that funny, but they're endearing in their own cutesy,
sweet manner. The best song is probably "Welcomf Home"
(that's a [sic] to you, buddy!), which is a ludicrously infectious
tune that'll be stuck in your head for days.
All in all, I can't say this is the best album ever, but it's a
nice one and it makes for a real fun diversion. Neat-o!
