Picks and Pans Review: Tear Me Apart
At 13, she was a precocious kid with Brenda Lee pipes; now, eight years later, Tanya Tucker is working harder than ever on her switch from country corn to good-ol'-girl rock in the Marshall Chapman mold. There are a couple of slow movers here and a few tributary Elvis licks in the title cut, but mostly Tucker belts out her numbers in a combustive voice that could set brush fires. "I've been seen in the back of a limousine/Well I may not own it, but it's bigger than you've seen" are lyrics that may distress her country-music loyalists, among others. But for those who like a bite with their beat, Tear Me Apart is as compelling as shotguns at a wedding.
