Don't Talk About Him, Tina
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
The reigning queens of brash irreverence deliver cleverly written one-liners with the effortlessness of flicking a cigarette. If their debut were a whiskey-fueled night out, Annie Up is the next day's hangover. Tempering the sass with a bit of substance, the trio sets a high bar with lusty opener "I Feel a Sin Comin' On," which starts out a cappella and builds to a full-throttle bluesy cut; this and "I Hope You're the End of My Story" highlight how seamlessly these ladies harmonize. Other delightful downers: "Blues, You're a Buzzkill," "Being Pretty Ain't Pretty" and "Dear Sobriety."
