Sam Phillips World on Sticks

Sam Phillips's tenth album, World on Sticks, is her first in five years. It brings a more bombastic production style to her songwriting and what Jim calls her "Leonard Cohen-esque acid wit." Jim and Greg agree that the apocalyptic lyrics are strong on this album. Greg calls the album a“small gem”and a carefully considered addition to her artistic oeuvre. He praises the biting string parts of the Section Quartet and the orchestral drumming of Jay Bellerose. Jim, on the other hand, thinks the drums are over the top and says the cabaret-style arrangements are a turn-off to him. He enjoys the songs "How Much is Enough" and "Tears in the Ground" calling them pop gems, though.
