Foregrounding the self-doubt that was a quiet but insistent subtext on the eponymous album, producer John Shanks provides unobtrusive arrangements and lets Phair strum more electric guitar; this is a singer-songwriter record, like Exile On Guyville. It’s also warmer than its predecessor.
Under The RadarWhat's disappointing about Somebody's Miracle is not so much a matter of genre, tone or production sheen, but that Phair has made herself indistinguishable by falling in line. [#11, p.112]

BradTOct 16, 2005I'm totally digging the new Liz Phair. How can anyone in his or her right mind give this a zero? You've gotta be an airhead if you I'm totally digging the new Liz Phair. How can anyone in his or her right mind give this a zero? You've gotta be an airhead if you have been as long a fan as I have since the early, early days of Girlysounds. Come on, there are some really cool and classic Liz songs on here. There is some weak filler stuff but I can even listen to those songs because it adds to the anticipation feeling I get waiting for songs like Got My Own Thing, Wind and the Mountain, Why I Lie, Everything (Between Us), Giving it All, Leap of Innocence, Table for One, Closer to You and if you have the extra of Can't Get out of what I'm into. I listen to the whole album and have grown to like it as much as any Liz Phair album. It is far from zero material. At it's worst is still probably more like a 5 without the songs mentioned above.… Expand
JjKelleOct 4, 2005I great album and a huge step up from the self-titled. This is the Liz Phair I fell in love with.
LevisOOct 3, 2005A massive improvement on the self titled. Still not up there with Guyville nor wcse but a great album. Welcome back, Liz.
KatieWOct 4, 2005People might like this album only becuase it is Liz Phair. Or people might hate this album only becuase it is Liz Phair. If you take her name People might like this album only becuase it is Liz Phair. Or people might hate this album only becuase it is Liz Phair. If you take her name off the album and just judge it sonically, the ablum is subpar. Mediocore at best. The vocals can not stand up to the way to glossy production. It sounds very run of the mill.… Expand
