Picks and Pans Review: All Dressed Up & No Place to Go
In her first album produced by former fiancé Andrew Gold, Larson, 30, sounds a little more Caribbean (with conga on most of the tracks) and a little more synthesized, but she's still the same appealing light rock singer she's always been. Neither her voice nor her emotional approach has much depth, but she sings with verve. Gold's arrangements are sleek, and the material was thoughtfully chosen. It includes work by Leon Russell, Lowell George and Jackson Browne, plus Gold's melancholy Still You Linger On; a peppy, commercial new tune by Andrew Kastner and Jim Lang, Just Say I Love You; and a Larson specialty, a revival of a '60s rock tune—in this case I Only Want to Be With You. Larson and Gold may never get married, but their musical union is flourishing.
