Bad Bad One

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Following the splash she made with the proto-feminist anthem "Bitch" and the hype that found her lumped in with a late-'90s wave of guitar-wielding Lilith Fair denizens, Meredith Brooks parted ways with her major label after the release of her sophomore disc, Deconstruction. Hence the indie label release Bad Bad One, which finds the Oregon-born singer-songwriter taking firmer control of the creative process by handling production and engineering duties on this free-flowing, 12-song outing. Incorporating loops and hip-hop-flavored beats into her guitar-driven sound, Brooks continues to champion the cause of strong-willed women, whether she's turning her back on a ...

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Following the splash she made with the proto-feminist anthem "Bitch" and the hype that found her lumped in with a late-'90s wave of guitar-wielding Lilith Fair denizens, Meredith Brooks parted ways with her major label after the release of her sophomore disc, Deconstruction. Hence the indie label release Bad Bad One, which finds the Oregon-born singer-songwriter taking firmer control of the creative process by handling production and engineering duties on this free-flowing, 12-song outing. Incorporating loops and hip-hop-flavored beats into her guitar-driven sound, Brooks continues to champion the cause of strong-willed women, whether she's turning her back on a soured relationship the jangly "Walk Away" or rebounding with optimism from life's bumps and bruises the infectious mid-tempo rocker "Shine". Brooks also provides interesting sonic contrasts between bright, upbeat numbers such as the faux-funk of "High" and the loping, Sheryl Crow-reminiscent folk-rock of "Crazy," as well as darker-sounding fare such as the mellotron-smothered confessional title cut and the electro-pop write-off "You Don't Know Me." Bad Bad One turns out to be a good creative declaration of independence from one of the '90s' more unsung talents.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Meredith Brooks let her hair down with 1997's Blurring the Edges, but went against it with her sophomore effort, Deconstruction. On her third album, Bad Bad One, Brooks doesn't follow any one formula. She finds herself fooling around with the pop stylings that made her a star in the first place, but tweaking them to her liking. She had her hand in writing every song and mastered the guitarwork by herself. The mix of hip-hop, funk, and sharp pop rhythms over basic three-chord jams keeps it tight without going overboard creatively. The songs on Bad Bad One are versatile, and Brooks' confidence is real. Bad Bad One is unafraid in letting it be known. Brooks urges one to embrace its soul on cheeky debut single "Shine." The country-tinged ditty "Crazy" follows suit in Brooks carefree nature, but it's the sexy funk of "High" that brings the party to the forefront. Brooks is happy -- happy with making music by her own standards and just plain smitten to be doing what she's doing. The tides do turn on this record. Some of Brooks' best work comes alive when she dissects the darker side. "You Don't Know Me" and "Walk Away" aren't exactly heartwrenching, but the salt wound is open. Everyone is a sucker sometime in their life, and Brooks has been one herself. But she's better for it. Meredith Brooks captured the moment and claimed victory on Bad Bad One. She found an inspiration -- it's fiery and passionate while also literate and cathartic -- and ran with it.

    Crawl into the head of Meredith Brooks

    I really like this record. A friend of mine lent me a copy and I think the music is great. Her lyrics are interesting, self deprecating and at times creepy - 'Your Name''. I was never a big fan of Meredith's until this album but now I understand why a lot of people are facinated with her.
