The hip factor of this new disc is off the scale, which would be meaningless if it weren't for the fact that Nancy is more than up to the challenge. Calexico's "Burnin' Down the Spark" covers all the traditional bases, including the mariachi brass. There's some solid psychedelia, some grunge and garage, and Pulp's Jarvis Crocker adds two tracks. There's a truly weird, even perverse number called "Momma's Boy" by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, and Pete Yorn and Morrissey are aboard. It may indeed be Frank's world, but Nancy has a wing all to herself.
