4.0 out of 5 stars Big, Better, Fast... just no More..., 19 Mar 2006
This review is from: Bigger, Better, Faster, More! (Audio CD)
If your likes list contains any of Blondie, Pink, Avril Lavigne, The Pretenders, and (perhaps particularly) Skunk Anansie, then this album - from the depths of 1993 - is an absolute must buy and is a reference piece in its own right.
Linda Perry's voice is mixed to sit clearly 'above' (and in some cases 'apart' from) the songs - with sometimes heavy reverb to give space around, and freeing her acid etching voice - strong and enthalling (much like Skin from S&A) - and giving a sense of her voice as an instrument in its own right.
The album is a very strong and consistent romp through 90's alternate rock - the confident song writing and execution evident in all tracks. Good pacing offers some welcome rest stops in the ride... however it's not one to play if you are feeling even remotely head-achey... you have been warned!
Stand out (and shortest!) track - 'Pleaseantly Blue'.
The only real down-side really is that this is the band's only album, Perry departing, leaving only a sense of 'what might have been'. Find her in her own solo-right, and in collaborations with (at least) Pink and Gwen Stefani.
