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.
Apart from the slightly funky closing track "No Place Like Home" there is no weak tracks on t he album. "Spaceman", which was another single taken the album, is the track which comes closest to the style of "What's Up" - and these two songs are my personal favourites.
Among the blues-rockers the opener "Train", "Pleasantly Blue" and "Old Mr Heffner" stand out. The acoustic "Drifting" is also really good.
After the album the band recorded songs for a few movie-soundtracks, but Perry thought that their musical direction had turned too commercial, so she decided the leave the band, which consequently decided to split-up.
Train is a rocking, ballsy, brilliantly played, well sung, genuinely great track. The problem is it's all a bit downhill from there.
Superfly is good, as are What's Up, and Spaceman, and Dear Mr. President. The rest of the songs range from OK to not so OK with the majority seeming to be vehicles for Linda Perry to shout louder. Don't believe me? Have a listen to Morphine and Chocolate. You will then.
Sounds negative doesn't it and you're probably wondering why I scored it as high as three stars. Well I do quite like it and, strangely, find myself listening to it in the car quite a lot because Linda hides all of the funny noises the car makes. And Train is worth the three stars alone in my opinion.
