Have You Seen Me Lately? was Simon's first studio album of original material in three and a half years. Simon has always written songs for her age group; here, it's the fortysomethings of the 1990s. "I've been doing a lot of thinking/About growing older and moving on," she sings, and in her world that entails "protein shakes," "twelve-step groups," and stays in clinics. Some relief is provided in the single "Better Not Tell Her" and "Fisherman's Song," on which Simon duets with Judy Collins. But you can't help thinking that the ongoing life story portrayed in Simon's songs has become somewhat limited. At the end, "We Just Got Here" provides the summer's-end metaphor for middle age, and we are left with the impression that there's nothing ahead but cold weather.

Every single song is great, this is the only album of hers that I know that every single song is great. The best one's are Better Not Tell Her, Holding Me Tonight, Life Is Eternal, Fisherman's Song, Don't Wrap It Up, that is just the beginning. I have rated a lot of Carly's albums, but tust me this is her BEST! You can not dislike this album, her whole heart is in it. It has a great booklet, with lyrics and nice little liner notes. Buy this one, I'm not just talking on and on. This is all true. Perfect in every way. I just bought this as a filler and it backfired, that is one was the best. Buy it and enjoy it.
