I'M GOING DOWN VS. RISE ABOVE

Mary's back. Rich Juzwiak wrote something about this song feeling Womack & Womack, but I actually think Mary has become Henry Rollins. Rollins, like Mary, represents a survivor lifestyle, his cache and livelihood is a diaristic gutting. Mary's K-Ci/drugs/self-loathing years are her living-in-Greg-Ginn's-mom's-garage equivalent, the pain from which all of her work orients. Their brands are based exclusively on sharing how they feel--ROLLINS/BLIGE=TWINS.
