Juliana Hatfield – In Exile Deo 
By Zane Ewton 

In the early 90’s, Juliana Hatfield had the potential to be a big star, riding on the back of the alternative music machine.  Unfortunately she was unable to capitalize on the success and when the scene died so did her immediate chances.

Dropped from her major label, she spent the rest of the 1990’s releasing consistent albums on independent labels.  In 2000 she simultaneously released the solo Beautiful Creature, and Total System Failure with the band Juliana’s Pony.  Now four years later, she has released In Exile Deo which is marked as more mature, heavier and more upbeat than her previous work.

The album is full of melodic and memorable songs.  Hatfield is not reinventing the pop music wheel but has used it to create a thoroughly enjoyable album.  The songs are vibrant and emotional.  It is simply just a catchy pop rock record.  

First track “Get in Line” is a slice of Hatfield’s signature jangly pop.  “Jamie’s in Town” and “Some Rainy Sunday” follow in the same line with a slight late 80’s pop feel to them.  “Tomorrow Never Comes” is tender and romantic, without becoming too sweet.  

While the mellower moments like “Singing in the Shower” and the organ-driven “My Enemy” are good songs that let Hatfield’s lyrics truly stand out it is the upbeat numbers that are her best.  “Because We Love You” and “Sunshine” are perfect examples of her talent at writing pretty much perfect pop songs.

This album will be very welcome to those that were very disappointed with Liz Phair’s attempt at the mainstream and Sheryl Crow’s airplane concerts.   In Exile Deo is not really a step forward.  The formula is the same but Hatfield uses it for great results.  This is definitely worth your time.
