Revenge is sweet on Star Kitty's Revenge, a fierce, funky, groove-laden opus that should finally earn the Atlanta-based songstress Joi the recognition she so rightfully deserves. Her critically acclaimed 1993 debut, Pendulum Vibe, and her never-released 1997 funk-rock masterpiece, Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome (widely circulated as a bootleg) fell victim to record label shutdowns, and despite her stint as lead vocalist in Lucy Pearl (replacing Dawn Robinson), mainstream success has eluded Joi thus far. But like any righteous diva would, she comes out swinging on Star Kitty's Revenge, packing the disc's 19 tracks and interludes with pure, unadulterated artistry. Mixing raunchy flair (à la Millie Jackson); cosmic, Parliament-style grooves; and Joi's own brand of Dirty South flair, originals like the X-rated "Lick", "Techno Pimp", and "You're a Whore" should send listeners into blissful, funk-induced hazes, while the old-school R&B of "Missing You" and a cover of Chaka Khan and Rufus's "I'm a Woman" are sure to get booties shaking in all the right ways. --Sylvia W Chan

Why isn't Joi Gilliam-Gipp more well-known??? What a crime! People should wake up to her powerful, gritty, soulful voice. Going by the sublime collection of songs contained in Star Kitty's Revenge (such as the sultry '17" Of Snow', the sassy 'Crave', and the absolutely sexy 'Lick', and MANY other musical masterpieces), Joi's new offering Tennessee Slim Is The Bomb will be the icing on the cake!

Good, yet somewhat ordinary. 21 Mar. 2002
By medjay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First let me say that I've been a fan of Joi ever since I saw her perform with Fishbone and open for De La Soul way back in the day. Her voice and stage presence grabbed me. I bought the Pendulum Vibe and even managed to get my hands on a copy of her never-released sophomore album The Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome (if you're a fan I strongly suggest you track this album down). So of course I waited with baited breath for the new album, anticipating even more wild innovation and genre bending experimentation and what I got was. . . well. . . a pretty good R&B album.
Is it a step back? Compared to Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome, yes. Gone are the ridiculously funky grooves and hard rocking tracks. In their place are more traditional vocal and musical arrangements seemingly designed for some sort of mass appeal. That's a shame because what originally made Joi stand out was her willingness to go agaist the grain and create something totally new and fresh. While her first album was slept on and the second never released, other artists (Kina comes immediately to mind) kicked similar yet inferior styles but managed to get some rotation.
Erykah Badu's excellent "Mama's Gun" was a step in the right direction and proved that there was an audience for a more experimental sound in soul music. Joi has the talent to push the envelope but just as it seemed the industry was ready to handle someone of her caliber, Joi scrapped the cutting-edge attitude in favor of a more mainstream sound. I can't clown her for that, though. It's hard to try and make a living as an unrecognized artist. I just hope her new direction is a genuine reflection of what she wants to do as an artist and not a last ditch attempt to get her music hear outside of her small cult of fans.
So, in essence, I'm not dissing the new album; it is a good listen and still stands head and shoulders over the competition but anyone who has heard her previous work knows what I'm talking about.

The Return 24 Mar. 2002
By Marc200 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Joi is back as fly and funky as ever. It's been almost eight years since "The Pendulum Vibe" and about 5 years since "Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome" was shelved by the diabolical EMI Corporation. But thankfully Joi has found her way back to us. The music is a Sly Stone/Betty Davis/P-Funk/Prince/Nona Hendryx-blues-funk-rock amalgam, the woman is a once-in-a-lifetime original. She can sing as sweetly as Minnie Riperton on the verse and then wail as ferociously as Chaka Khan on the chorus.
Of course, greatness breeds great expectations and "Star Kitty's Revenge" is a mixed bag that doesn't necessarily meet those expectations. There are definite flashes of brilliance - "Missing You" is a breathless, mid-tempo funk jam with some tripped-out lyrics and is the best song you will never hear on the radio this year. "Jefferson St. Joe" is Joi's ode to her father that is never sappy or sentimental but will make you weep nonetheless. "What If I Kissed You" is a slinky come-on, and "It's Your Life" is Joi's typically idiosyncratic anthem of self-affirmation. But then there are some seemingly superfluous oddities ("Techno Pimp" chief among them) that could have been cut to give the CD more cohesion.
Joi is a progressive, uncompromising artist, and has little in common with her derivative, overly-hyped contemporaries even though she will very likely be shoved into the banal "neo-soul" sub-genre. Of course, that insult to her artistry would be worth it if urban radio would actually give Joi a spin. The parental advisory sticker on this CD is no joke, Joi can be raunchy at times but it is never gratuitous, it is a true expression of who she is -- Joi may shock you but she ain't trying to, she's just being her freaky ole self.

Joi is by far an artist than a beauty queen... ;) 6 May 2005
By Christopher Pineda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hello there!... so you want some funk in yo life? Need a lil energy boost, or just want to get buck wild, but than you want to chill... cool down??? Well SKR is the right thang for yah!!! LMAO But for real though, Joi Gilliam is one of the greatest female artists of this generation, she mixes up funk into r&b and adds a lil bit of rock into the mix, creating music that can soothe the savage beast, make you feel like your dazed and floating on a soft cloud, or turn you into a beast... funky and sweaty. But don't be fooled by Joi's beauty and amazing voice, she is as much an artist as she is a singer, Her voice is huge, imagine Chaka Khan but with a younger sounding tone, and than add a lil feline in the mix... although that would be a great reason to love Joi, no way! I'm a fan of Joi because she is an awesome Artist, she goes everywhere with this album, taking giant leaps over barriers and traveling to distant lands inviting you to join with her tantalizing voice, making you feel as if your there with her all the way. The writing is soo soo thoughtfully developed and interestingly curiously amazingly hmm hmm good lol, and the instrumentation is just too vibratious, too yummy, hypnoticly stimulating, and it takes over your body... so it's clear... you need SKR in your life!!! Right??? Well, when it finally comes in the mail, and you are able to sit down and get caught up into it... listen to it the whole way through, that's the best way to travel, nice and easy, unless your the hulk and can jump great distances??? Well, I guess that's about it, so I'll go ahead and tell you my favorite tracks... which are "ALL OF THEM," I have a favorite track for each of my different moods, which I'm sure you will too... also, I don't want to make any predictions but... this is an album that you will not want to put down, so be sure that you also get Joi's "Pendulum Vibe" album to even out the playing field lol. Ok, well take my word for it. YOU NEED SKR, it's for the true funkateer. Peace & blessings.

Jump 4 Joi 27 Jun. 2005
By S. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well, (sigh) I am Joi Fan from the first album. This album does have allot of funk and originality but it does lack luster in some areas. Its so hard to say what is true, when Joi is such an awesome being, but whats real is real & what's real w/t Star Kitty's revenge is that not one track really stands out above the other, none of the tracks are horrible but its hard to identify one from the next. Also she has a truely incredible voice and vocal range, which she uses only 25% of the time on this album. Allot of it is this parched dry throat Sly & The Family Stone syle of sing/talking. I would have liked to hear more variety, instead of the consistent down tiempo electro funk she rode through out the LP. With that being said, this ablum is awesome w/t originality of style and honest lyrics. Joi was not afraid to spk her mind and say things most wouldnt and for that, I will remain a Joi fan. Keep Space Age Pimp'N.
