Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Play It As It Lays", prodotto dalla stessa Patti assieme all'amico-collaboratore di lunga data Steve Jordan (batterista e apprezzatissimo produttore di, tra gli altri, John Mayer ed Eric Clapton) e a Ron Aniello (Guster, Barenaked Ladies), si trova al crocevia del Rock con RandB, Folk, Blues e Gospel. Un disco straordinariamente contemporaneo capace di conservare l'eco di suggestioni che vanno da The Staples Singers a Al Green, da Laura Nyro a Sly Stone a Creedence Clearwater Revival. 1. Looking For Elvis 2. Like Any Woman Would 3. Town Called Heartbreak 4. Play Around 5. Rainy Day Man 6. Word 7. Bad For You 8. Run Run Run 9. Play It As It Lays 10. Black Ladder

Patti Scialfa can't utter a sentence, let alone issue an entire album, without the world scanning it for Bruce Springsteen-related subtext, so on Play It as It Lays--the sharpest, most assured, and best record of her solo career--she gives up. This beautiful, world-weary record, rich in girl-group harmonies, folk-roots rhythms, and clear-eyed lyrics, gets to the heart of what it means to be in a long-term relationship, whether it's with a rock god or a shoe salesman. There are sacrifices ("Like Any Woman Would"), concessions ("Town Called Heartbreak"), thrills ("Rainy Day Man"), and long spells of casting aside wistfulness and scraping up hope ("Looking for Elvis"). Most of all, though, there is honesty. Scialfa, a longtime E-Street band member and mother to the three Springsteen teenagers, sings these songs in the dark, grainy voice that's distinguished her from the start, but here it takes on a weightier, more lived-in quality. She's as comfortable with this material as she was with her backing band for the project--Willie Weeks, Nils Lofgren, Cliff Carter, and Mr. Springsteen himself all piled into a room in her New Jersey farmhouse for the sessions, christening themselves the Whack Brothers along the way--and it shows. Play It as It Lays is Scialfa's Born in the USA; her masterpiece. --Tammy La Gorce
