Ah, The L Word - that parallel galaxy where all the dykes are femmey fashion plates who could've stepped off the set of Sex And The City. Their whitewashed hetero-boy fantasy of queerness makes me queasy, but although this collection of tracks from the show is similarly tame, it's fun to imagine a montage of lusty ladies gettin' it on to Ella Fitzgerald crooning Let's Do It, or some brazen hussy angling for polyamory to Frances Faye's bedhopping Frances And Her Friends. It's cool that the tracks are almost all by women, and that the BC-based production team solicited Canuck contributions from folks like Jason Collett. While Joan Armatrading's sapphotastic The Weakness In Me is deliciously cheesy, it's nice to hear a lesbo comp that doesn't include Etheridge or the Indigo Girls. We're not all herbal tea, after all.
