Review

Finally, a really great album. Unfortunately it is the last one for at least three albums... the next three albums are god-awful... just a warning. Afterwards we might be getting back to better stuff.

Now this album is a nifty one, it sounds like Tom-Tom Club in a more punky mood. This is natural seeing as the singer here is coming from Riot Grrrl Bikini Kill, another great band.

There is one thing which kind of annoys me, there is a bit too much topic and name dropping going on here, furthering their feminist agenda... not that there is anything wrong with that agenda, only with the fact that it sometimes sounds pretentious. Still the music is so infectious and great... and reminds me so much of a time when music was better that this is up until now the best album of 99.

i agree with you silva. this and I see a darkness are hands down the best albums of 1999. although two albums could hardly be more dissimilar. this is smart fun music.
