We gave it a B+

Harry Chapin’s daughter inherited the songwriting gift. But where Dad crafted short stories, Jen shares interior monologues, essaying common themes with uncommon wit and sweetly supple singing. And her band swings along with her mood: Big bass and hand percussion rumble beneath the lustful desire of ”Me Be Me”; a tacky drum-machine rumba lightens the polemics of ”Passive People.” Makes you want to, well, linger.
