reviews for blink the brightest

Entertainment Weekly
July 2005

Most of the alt-rock class of 1996 have graduated to real estate, but Bonham was built to last. Blink the Brightest accomplishes what Liz Phair's underrated last CD did, albeit more effortlessly, being a postdivorce album for disappointed grown-ups that's somehow fresh enough for apple-cheeked kids, too. If some teenage TV couple doesn't fall in love to "Eyes" -- and, the following season, break up to "All Thumbs" -- somebody at The WB is falling down on the job.
