We gave it a B

Like Tracy Bonham and Poe, Patti Rothberg is being marketed as the next angry young woman — an Alanis More-or-less. In Rothberg’s case, the comparison doesn’t quite hold; the talented former busker is folkier and less aggressive, with well-crafted songs and an appealingly grainy voice — think of a distaff Dylan. It’s too bad she’s undermined by Between the 1 & the 9‘s wan production.
