Boomkat Product Review:
Short & Sweet (originally released in 1992 as Little Annie) The real truth is that Short & Sweet was not Annie's third album, it was her fourth. Snapped up by the major Atco after the critical acclaim surrounding Jackamo, Annie spent a lot of cash and a lot of time creating her masterwork - and then the label collapsed and buried her album in a grave of legal limbo. Annie did what all smart girls do - divorced her husband, fired her manager, and went back into the studio. Along with her faithful Tackhead compadres she set about crafting a pop album - but one which demanded that the musical form rise to her high standards - rather than watering down her own creative force to a lower common denominator. Annie is vocally wearing her most comfortable shoes ever on this album - and her lyrics draw from a rich source of anger, betrayal and realism that come from surviving a failed record deal and a failed marriage. A true tour de force.
