The Way It Really Is

Lead Performer: Lisa Loeb; Producer (group): Zoe

The bespectacled singer’s latest, The Way It Really Is, starts off promisingly with ”Window Shopping,” an invitation to try on a relationship like a pair of Jimmy Choos: ”Take me home/The tags are on/It’s still a loan.” It’s deadpan clever in a Liz Phair way. Lisa Loeb tries on different metaphors elsewhere, like rubbernecking a romance wreck in ”Accident.” Her writing is stronger than ever, and the material is curiously light on its feet.
