Lili , 6.5/10

Lili Haydn, raised in a Los Angeles commune, started playing violin for Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Donovan, Hootie & The Blowfish, Porno For Pyros, No Doubt, Jimi Page and Robert Plant. She studied singing with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan amd played with the Los Angeles Philarmonic Orchestra. Soon, she began singing her own compositions, and her sunday show at the "Viper" became legendary, an austere mixture of classical, folk, jazz, pop, rock and pop.

While her talent is significant, Lili (Atlantic, 1997) is too confused a collection to take advantage of it. From the lullaby Baby to the psychedelic Real, from the middle-eastern Daddy to the funky Someday, from the radio-friendly Take Somebody Home to the rowdy Stranger, Haydn simply misses one opportunity after the other to open up her heart. Her compositional skills are best showcased in the instrumentals Salome and Wants Deep. Her songwriting is not only ineffective, it is counterproductive.
