Amy Rigby: Til The Wheels Fall Off (2003)
The highlight for me is "Don't Ever Change," the most heart-tugging song Rigby's written (in a catalog full of heart-tugging songs); a basic "Thirteen"/"Speeding Motorcycle" acoustic guitar riff packed with lyrics that invariably have me tearing up:
And of course you've got the playful, upbeat "Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again," the frank and familiar ode to post-marital love:
A few of the tunes turn things up a notch, maybe not rocking out but at least fun and energetic, like the bubbly, cheerful title track, a rollicking little boy-girl duet; opener "Why Do I," while painfully self-deprecating, moves at a brisk clip; and "Believe In You" has a dreamy, electric, almost psychedelic groove. But for the most part it's quiet and mostly acoustic, campfire songs for the romantic and/or broken-hearted over-30 set.
Here's an audio rip of the title track:
