This is one of the most haunting albums you will ever hear, mainly due to the angelic voice of front-woman katie jane garside, but also because of the abrassive guitar riffs and atmospheric drumming that combine to form a slighty scary musical experience.Queen Adreena are nothing if unique, and therefore comparisons to other bands are hard to draw, the closest link being Daisy Chainsaw; the former incarnation of vocal banshee katie jane and six-stringer crispen. however, they have certainly moved on since then, to a much darker sound. what is striking about Taxidermy is how diverse it manages to be, yet still retain a coherant theme to the album. songs like 'I Adore You' and 'Cold Fish' show Queen Adreena going for it hell-for-leather, with a speedy guitar, yet again accompanied by the other-worldy vocals of katie jane.other songs, 'Weeds' being a particually good example, are slow, melodic trippy songs which feature some of the most beautiful vocals i have ever heard. the rest of the songs fall somewhere between the two, they easily shift between the mix of fast/slow with ease. the video featured on the disc is also worth checking out, as it offers a further insight into the band, but particually to hear the excellent 'Heavenly Surrender' which is not featured on the album. this album is not like anything else you will hear, and for that reason alone is worth listening to. however, it is also one of the greatest albums i have listened to and has endeared itself to me like no other, and that is probablly one of the strongest recommendations i can give, go and buy it damn u!
