Out Of The Blue

By The Burns Sisters

Very Good Condition

A Review

Vamping blues, back-street rock & roll, Irish whistle folk, slick new country, and gospel praising both body and soul: for their sixth album, Annie, Jeannie, and Marie Burns continue melding their charming harmonies with perky, adult, feminist rock. Out of the Blue is their most musically catchy and accomplished recording; it's also their most lyrically forgettable. Marie and Annie write songs about relationships, whether broken or enduring, but rarely transcend prefabricated pop sentiments. Cliches are tacked together--"For your love, I'd climb the mountain / For your love, I'll swim the sea" and "Stand up for what you believe / To yourself be true"--which might be forgivable if the writers weren't so laboriously earnest. Humor nearly saves the Earth-mother preaching of "God Made Woman" and the fun country fluff of "Two Step Recipe," but Out of the Blue rarely makes it out of the commonplace. --Roy Kasten
