The fourth studio album of Shakespears Sister is released
and many fans enjoy the comeback of Siobhan Fahey who presents her solo work.
The work differs from 'Sacred Heart', 'Hormonally Yours' and '#3' because of
the new direction between electro rock, electro pop and synthi.
After earlier tops like 'Stay', 'Hello' and 'I don't care' in cooperation
with Marcella Detroit, the new songs show an interesting arrangement of her voice,
electronic melodies and a new instrumental line.
'Pulsatron' creates a significant lounge-club-feeling, flavoured with guitar sounds
and dance-elements, that gives a special accent for the described party woman in an
urban nightlife and hypnotizes the listeners.
'Bad Blood' describes a town trip in love's chaos and breakout feelings. In drum and
sounds it becomes a dance-trip.
'Was It Worth It?' is a duet with Terry Hall, a constellation of hip hop,
electro and rock. The electronic love duo asks for faith and avoids love catastrophes
before they happen.
'It's A Trip' contains and designs youth, ecstasy, love, dream and city life in music.
'Hot Room' is as one of the best songs able to point out the voice of Siobhan Fahey and
to go under your skin with special trance feelings in a special zone of dark poisoned revenge.
Look, how fine it develops.
'A Man In A Uniform' as a faster song about the love for men in uniform and 'You're Alone'
as a slow-motion-song about lies in one's life and the question of being show the contrasts of
'Bitter Pill' is here in a rock version that is not the maxi version but another interesting
example for this song. It contains weakness in life and the feeling to be without perspectives.
'Cold' is the best song of the album and is a monumental ballad that hits you in a soul being.
It creates ice in your veins and makes a picture of the cold love zones. Memories of old works come out
and are connected with her new line.
'You're Not Yourself' and 'A Loaded Gun' show different pictures of love and style in contradictious accents.
The B-side for the Deluxe-album contains further electro-, dance- and love songs in changing times and phases,
especially 'White Rabbit' and 'Someone Else's Girl' (single).
Siobhan Fahey as a woman in being is after a beautiful cover in it as well and still sounds very impressing.
She wins with her new accent although earlier works are missed sometimes. Her development is interesting and modern
and convinces because of her tendency to create her own style. That's fine. She won the post-war.
