Nanci Griffith Flyer (ELEKTRA) THE GENRE-INSPECIFIC GRIFFITH DOES NOTHING HERE TO STAKE OUT A NICHE. HER STYLE REMAINS TOO FORMAL FOR POP, TOO ROBUST FOR FOLK, TOO FEY FOR ROCK, TOO RESERVED FOR COUNTRY. AND HER VOICE VEERS FROM UNINFLECTED TO ANNOYINGLY AFFECTED. THE PRODUCTION AND INSTRUMENTATION ARE IMPECCABLE (YOU’D EXPECT THAT WHEN HER STUDIO ELVES INCLUDE ADAM DURITZ, INDIGO GIRLS, AND PETER BUCK). BUT EXCEPT FOR ”THESE DAYS IN AN OPEN BOOK” AND ”GOODNIGHT TO A MOTHER’S DREAM,” SOMEBODY FORGOT TO MAKE SURE THE MELODIES HAD APPEAL. THE RESULT IS AN ALBUM THAT IS ARTFUL BUT INERT.
