We gave it a B

For the 20th anniversary of her solo LP Tigerlily, the ex–10,000 Maniacs singer delivers revamped versions of those 11 tracks. Her inspirational hit “Wonder” is overly earnest, transformed from a funk-lite rocker into a spare ballad. But her jazzy spin on “Jealousy”—with Merchant, now 52, sounding as youthful as ever—feels like hanging in a cozy coffee shop for open-mic night circa 1995. B
