    In the late 1980s, Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians caught the nation's fancy with their neo-hippie folk-rock. Since parting with the band, Brickell's solo outings have been few and far between--one in the mid-'90s (produced by husband Paul Simon) and then nothing until this 2003 release. VOLCANO bears little relation to the New Bohemians days; some cuts offer moody, atmospheric balladeering a la latter-day Rickie Lee Jones, while others such as "Oo La La" seem at least partly informed by Simon's world-pop syncretism. There are other interesting stylistic detours--the jazzy "I'd Be Surprised," the Sheryl Crow-meets-Counting Crows soulful pop of "Not Saying Goodbye." Overall, VOLCANO is both more varied and more directly involving than its predecessor. Progress, then.
