Only 10 years in the coming, this album from Massachusetts indie darlings the Blake Babies presents good news and bad news. The good news is that Evan Dando is alive (!) and stood upright long enough to contribute bass and vocals to God Bless. The bad news is, it's a Blake Babies record, proving once again that Julianna Hatfield is the Dick Van Patten of the music world -- negligibly talented but ridiculously lucky. Paper-thin, one-dimensional folk/pop compositions with sad sack lyrics delivered in a teensy-weensy girly voice? Ugh.
