    It's rare for an artist entering her fourth decade to keep releasing music of such high quality, but Phillips sounds like she's rejuvenated--and never better.

    Phillips' agile vocals sweep over these mostly ragtag arrangements and provide the emphasis and impact that each of these songs demand.

    The pieces don't always fit, making Solid State her most uneven album in at least a decade. But every track offers the pleasure of Phillips's marvelous voice, which sounds like Scotch seeping through cracks in wood.

    Ultimately, Solid State: Songs from the Long Play is a well-intended byproduct, horribly executed.
