The Mike + Ruthy Band - Bright As You Can

Mike and Ruthy Band - Error

Please explain the use of the word "lousy"  (...flat-out lousy with great songwriting). It's throwing me a bit. This CD is so incredible and truly infectious, as you write further in the article, but the term "lousy" in that first paragraph doesn't make sense to me. Is it like when my kids say something is "sick" or "ridiculous" or "stupid" to mean something actually good?

 

Pretty much. It's an idiom meaning something along the lines of "well-supplied."
