Amy Blaschke
Self-Titled (2003, Luckyhorse Industries)

Amy Blaschke’s eponymous debut CD is sleepy and uninspired. Female lead vocals over acoustic guitar and bass, and lyrics that show Amy is a disciple of Dar Williams and Ani DiFranco. The lyrics are very mundane and, frankly, delivered like the singer has just been roused from a nap and asked to sing. The only track that is interesting is the closing song, ‘Avalanche’. However, that song is ruined because they decided to do one of those mock-fade outs and have 20 seconds of silence followed by a bit of noise. The whole CD comes off as self-important and self-involved.
