Exile is groundbreaking in so many ways. Showing that a woman can have thoughts once reserved for men. The lyrics. Her compositional style. The chord structure. I'm sure she uses some funky guitar tuning. A very popular "underground" album.Pretty much just Exile In Guyville - an underground classic. I also have the Girlysound songs. After that era, I only like a handful of her songs.
That seems like a pretty contemporary album for you.
I stand corrected. You've often given the impression that things stopped for you in the 80s/early 90s.How so? While I stopped listening to pop in 1985ish, i listened to rock til early 90s then alternative until about y2k when I stopped listening to current stuff for the most part. But I probably have a handful of songs from almost every year even this one in my library.
