Nina Gordon - Bleeding Heart Graffiti Review

by Zane Ewton

All the thirty-something women who traded in their flannel for dead-end jobs and disappointing relationships will swoon over Bleeding Heart Graffiti.

Nina Gordon's first solo record was an expansion of the grunge inspired guitars of her band Veruca Salt into a glossy singing/songwriting, and noticeably better dressed women. This time around Gordon completely abandons Lollapalooza for Lilith Fair. Add longtime producer Bob Rock to the mix and the indie kids should be feigning disgust while they hide Bleeding Heart Graffiti at the back of their collection.

Don't worry, they'll be singing along when no one is looking. Her tales of relationships help Gordon occupy a space that is edgier than Sheryl Crow but a far cry from Courtney Love.

If emotional girly-rock is your thing, this may be the best album you buy this year. At 14 songs, the record is about 4 songs too long but Rock's production highlights the good songs and particularly Gordon's vocals.

She comes across as a regular woman who can write some decent songs and has an enjoyable if understated voice. Right now that is an amazingly refreshing and welcomed change in music.
