Album Reviews: Nancy Sinatra by Nancy SinatraNancy Sinatra is back. Where was she? No idea, but she's been a soundtrack staple with classics featured in Austin Powers and Kill Bill. At 64 years young, she could pass for half that on her self-titled comeback CD. The album showcases her with talented veterans of a younger generation, like Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker (“Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time” and “Baby’s Coming Back to Me”), Morrissey (“Let Me Kiss You”), John Spencer (“Ain’t No Easy Way”) and U2 (“Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad”).
But the best collaborations come with less well-known artists, like the opening track “Burnin’ Down the Spark,” which trumpets her return Calexico style. Pete Yorn provides the catchiest tune in “Don’t Mean Nothing.” But the most interesting mix of styles comes on the centerpiece “Momma’s Boy” by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore. Here Sinatra shows her influence on PJ Harvey and Liz Phair.
This album could be a gateway drug to get your parents listening to your music. Play it for them, then casually slide something more daring by one of Nancy's collaborators into the changer. Next thing you know, you’ll be going to concerts with your mom again. - Jeff Kamin
