The very first time i listened to this album i liked it, but was a little disappointed - 'So long,scarecrow' is more mellow than Scarling.'s last offering - 'Sweet Heart Dealer'. But a few more listens made me realise something terribly important. Scarling. dont need to be brash and expletive filled to be powerful - their ferocity comes from their sheer beauty. With faultless drumming from new member Beth Gordon, guitars reminiscent of early Placebo and Jessicka's amazing voice, Scarling. have something that most bands don't - a sort of filthy beauty. Sometimes sounding sweet on the surface, the lyrics are filled with pain, regret and anger. Each track is stunning and offers something different from the last, but all are deliciously catchy. It would be impossible to pick a favourite, but 'We Are The Music Makers' sums up Scarling. perfectly - it's dark, catchy, awesome, with lyrics like 'we kiss like painted tigers/but we bleed like no one else'. SLS is music that you can sing and dance along to, but also music that you could hysterically self destruct to.Buy this CD, put it on, and let Scarling. blast you into the sweetest oblivion you could ever envisage.
