    Aside from the unfortunately slick mid-'80s production, Jane Wiedlin's 1985 solo debut is probably the best solo album by any ex-member of the Go-Go's. Wiedlin's voice, a helium-pitched trill that manages to be cute instead of obnoxious, would have been better used in the Go-Go's; on its own, it adds a level of frothy pop giddiness even to relatively dark tunes like the post-breakup lament "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Sometimes You Really Get on My Nerves." The singles "Modern Romance" and "Blue Kiss" really should have been hits (they're certainly better than most of Belinda Carlisle's solo work), and the best of the album tracks trade the pertness of the Go-Go's for a slightly more mature, world-weary vibe. The closing "My Traveling Heart" is the biggest surprise, a Celtic-flavored ballad with a lovely cyclical melody and the best, most personal lyrics on the album.
