Some of his songs, such as "Stinkin Blinkin Sinkin," are replete with potential slogans for the radical '90s. "U.S. Rap: His Tory" is a tour de force account of U.S. history from a "right" point of view as told by the persona he calls George Shrub, a singing agent for the CIA (Committee to Intervene Anywhere). "They're All Stupid" points the finger at those who poison the land and the water and the government's duplicitous role in the sordid affair.
VICTORY REVIEW (Tacoma):
He personalizes songs, then hits the general corporate prey from S&Ls to the AMA. He takes you from a hope for great streets of music and people in "Have I Left Anything Out," to how not to reason with the government in "Love Nazi," or to the pollutants coming from "They're All Stupid." Top flight material. Seattle is an original home for Lippman reflected in "You Can't Grow a Forest." Get this CD. Your brain will expand with humor on serious subjects.
NUVO NEWSWEEKLY (Indianapolis):
"No Sale" is a superb showcase, ten original songs that cover topics ranging from the mundane and everyday, such as obnoxious auto drivers, to such global, post-Cold War concerns as the "Enemy of the Week." The yearning and wistful come through on "You Can't Grow a Forest," and the enthusiastic and utopian (in the good sense) in Lippman's vision of society after a revolution, "Have I Left Anything Out?" All of this is lined with creative rage, pungent wit, and the ability to laugh in the face of lies. The one song on "No Sale" that's not a Lippman original, "Friend of the Fetus," deserves special mention for its deft skewering of right-to-lifers, thus showing that even an issue as thorny as abortion can lend itself to trenchant satire.
