POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

** 1/2 Tanya Donelly, "Lovesongs for Underdogs," Reprise.

September 14, 1997|Sara Scribner

The former Belly, Breeders and Throwing Muses singer-guitarist kicks off her aptly named solo debut with a lush jangle of pop aggression called "Pretty Deep." Except for the college-radio-perfect lullaby "Mysteries of the Unexplained," Donelly's initially alluring lyrics disappoint on closer inspection. Musically, the punky parts lack the required punch and the sweet jags eventually turn saccharine.
