On her fourth full-length, effervescent songwriter Jill Sobule bounces back with a batch of vibrant character sketches reminiscent of her 1995 self-titled album. Enjoy getting better acquainted with "Lucy at the Gym," wasting away as she climbs a Stairmaster to Heaven; "Claire," whose secret life is enriched by the onset of old age; and infamous Washington-state schoolteacher "Mary Kay," portrayed here with surprising sympathy. Inspired arrangements -- "Rainy Day Parade" rings out like Petula Clark on mood elevators, while the single "One of These Days" saunters atop programmed beats à la Beck or Beth Orton -- add depth to this 12-track collection without overshadowing the singer's unaffected delivery. Most impressively, Sobule serves up several truly touching songs of loves lost and found (mostly the former) that cut through the treacle. If you never thought a ditty called "Mexican Wrestler" could tug the heartstrings, this winning album will change your mind.
