A frustrating pleasure

sue1485

Nice singing, high quality song-writing. And I enjoy the mix of poppy melodies and grungy guitar. But I do find I lose interest as it progresses. I've been listening to it, trying to figure out why, and it's become one of those albums where I'd love to re-do half the songs, make some faster, change the guitar on some. But I still like it. If I didn't I wouldn't spend time trying to figure out how to make it better!

One of her best!

I love, love, love this Juliana Hatfield record. As a diehard fan, I consider this to be one of her best. Having just been jilted by her label, Juliana really puts forth a powerful attitude in her writing and her playing on this release in particular. And it rocks.

They Say All Music Guide

Despite a promising start, the world of major labels did not treat Juliana Hatfield well. Become What You Are generated a handful of alt-rock hits, but its follow-up, Only Everything, barely registered, and her third album for Mammoth/Atlantic, God’s Foot, was never released. Frustrated, she severed ties with Mammoth/Atlantic and released a tension-breaking EP, Please Do Not Disturb, for Bar/None in 1997 before following with her fourth official solo album, Bed, in late summer 1998. Recorded in just three days, Bed has an immediacy lacking in all of her albums since Hey Babe, but truth be told, there’s little to stylistically differentiate it from any of her records. Hatfield remains loyal to jangly guitar pop dusted with the occasional grungy guitars, and she still balances precariously between charmingly innocent and cloying, which can often disguise the subversive themes or tortured emotions of her songs. For much of the album she’s in good form, delivering strong songs with memorable melodies, but she fails to keep the momentum going throughout Bed, which has been a common problem on all of her records since Hey Babe. There are enough good songs to make it worthwhile for the committed fan, but at this point, unfortunately, those are the only ones who are still listening. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
