Picks and Pans Review: Cyndi Lauper
The Body Acoustic
Lauper must be having trouble coming up with some good new material. After 2003's covers disc At Last, she redoes her own hits in stripped-down settings with help from guests like Shaggy and Ani DiFranco. The results, including two soothing new songs, are pleasant if sometimes pointless: A folky "Time After Time" benefits from Sarah McLachlan's ethereal presence, but on a plaintive "She Bop," this girl doesn't seem to be having any fun.
