I picked this album up on a whim when I was strolling through the local antique store. I knew Julie Brown from Earth Girls are Easy, and I was curious as to what an album by her would be like. The answer? Freaking awesome! If, of course, you're into '80s pop. Julie Brown totally has a sort of Madonna/Cyndi Lauper thing going for her, with more comedy than either one. This album is loaded with catchy tunes and plenty of laughs, but it does slow down a bit in the middle and deliver some more serious songs. It's a great album that knows how to play different moods and feelings to a very entertaining, satisfactory effect.
