Oh Brother!

6 May

Poor Michael Penn.  He’s the most overlooked one in his whole family.  Imagine this:  first you grow up with celeb parents (Leo Penn, Eileen Ryan) and then your younger brothers become huge (Chris, R.I.P.) and huger (Sean).  Then you fall in love and get married to a star.  (Aimee Mann)

It’s not like Michael was unknown of course.  His records always get a mass of critical raves, but in the scheme of things, well…’nuff said.

It’s really a good thing that fame is so unimportant.

Here’s one example of why those critical raves always happen:  “Me Around” from his third release, Resigned.  Lovely, no?
