Album Reviews: Meghan Trainor and Lisa Loeb


 Treat Myself: This is Meghan Trainor's fourth album since she premeired back in 2011. I don't know much about Trainor, I only knew her 2014 hit "All About That Bass." It isn't a bad album but it isn't a good album. It's the kind of pop album where you can find a few songs to like and put on a playlist but there isn't any song on here that is going to get you through the year or stick with you. And it feels like just a collection of songs not a conceptual album of any sort. It's a bit long but all the songs are fairly consistent and so you can put it on in the background and you'll find yourself enjoying it OK.


A Simple Trick to Happiness:  Lisa Loeb is my age so I have to root for her.  Truth is though I know about as much about Lisa Loeb as I do about Meghan Trainor, even though Loeb's first album came out 25 years ago.  This is her 10th album, her first in 7 years.  It pretty much sounds like her music did 25 years ago, so if you were a big Lisa Loeb fan back in 1995 this album will probably work for you.  As it is I found it to be OK.  


  1. I liked this Meghan Trainor song fine, and my favorite of hers is "Better When I'm Dancing" from the fantastic 2015 Peanuts Movie.

  2. GO, LISA LOEB (Dallas Hockaday Class of '86)!

    And it's great to read this post.
