Women Who Rock: The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (50 music items)

"A smartass indie-rock rebel grabs her guitar and cooks up a perfect debut album of wisecracks, obscenities, tortured love songs and freewheeling sex songs. She's never topped it, but who has? Essential moment: "Fuck and Run," in which the ironic ice queen breaks down and admits to a sentimental streak. Of course, she takes it all back in the next song."

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Phair’s debut was intended as a song-by-song riposte to the Stones’ Exile On Main Street. The concept isn’t fully realized, but the ambition and intelligence it implies give rise to a startling record, boosted by both its admirable musical scope and taboo-busting lyrics. Standout track: “Never Said”"
