Thanks for covering this. Considering past honorees included, Charlie Sheen, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Octomom’s sperm donor, how can they flip the message now and state this was a celebration of Jenner's courage? Seems to me that Caitlyn has more balls than Wynne does. Wynne should "man" up and apologize. This whole snark and satirical program of theirs and the fans that partake in it, are small.
You spent 177 words rambling on about how much you disliked his past projects. I thought this review was about Mermaids? . The remaining 99 words, 30% of which are quotes from lyrics and not actual review content, leaves me wondering why you didn't explore the record in depth?
Silver lining is that I am now motivated to give the record a listen myself.
Tthe write up on Shawn Luby's the Giving was shockingly offensive, "Listening to a gentle singer with a supple tone and clear diction can feel like being slapped, softly, by a ballerina." WTH is that? Later in the piece she states that his voice is a predicament and a curse. Why is Shawn's voice a predicament? Robin, Barry Gibb, Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley had similar melancholy falsetto qualities to their voices. She missed writing about Shawn's exquisite opening line in Acrobat's Affair. It's a beautiful moving metaphor. Who the hell misses that??? Someone would rather throw homophobic punches at the artist than to close their eyes and open their hearts . That song is powerful in its gentleness. That is what Humble Tripe is about. IW missed the mark, again.
