After the wrenching but rewarding Geek the Girl, Lisa Germano widens her focus and brightens her outlook on Excerpts From a Love Circus. Of course, Love Circus is a Lisa Germano album, but it's a slightly lighter take on her vulnerable, folky dream-pop: only she could make the refrain "Bruises, bruises, bruises" equally catchy and disturbing. As the title suggests, Excerpts From a Love Circus collects vignettes about hating the one you love and loving the one you hate; once again, Germano captures awkward, abstract feelings with her dreamy arrangements, hooky songwriting and unflinching lyrics. Passive-aggressive love songs like "I Love a Snot" sport flourishes like toy pianos and tablas, and incisive comments like "A Beautiful Schizophrenic"'s "I know you like my bad side/I love you like my good side".
"In the Name of Love" is the 17th album by Earth, Wind & Fire. It was released in 1997 on Rhino Records and was produced by the band's leader Maurice White for Kalimba Productions. The album was originally released in Japan only, under the title of Avatar; this pressing contained a different track list than the more widely released version. The track "Love Is Life" is a remake of its namesake which appeared on the band 's debut album, Earth, Wind & Fire.
