Addictive is the word I'd choose for this album. Eight Arms has always been criticized for its big, BIG production. Thanks to Bob Rock, the flourishes to the songs are almost overpowering. But there's a lot of enjoyment derived from hearing the girls' guitars this clear, this rich. The vocal harmonies are at once, sassier and lusher. In songs like "Stoneface", the bitchiness is appealing and sexy, not to mention kind of bone rattlingly exhilirating. While in the ballad "Loneliness is worse", the vocals are sweeping and Nina Gordon sounds radio ready. The melodies and the hooks stick like gum to a really really hot wall. Eight Arms may not have the lazy, druggy, hazy rage of its predescessor but it's more than a deserving follow up.
