Well recorded/produced album, great drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Atmospheric at times like on the track Distorting a code and Implaer. Obviously Ghetto Love being the main kick ass track. The album improves the more you listen to it. Hopefully they'll do a follow album soon??!!

I'll get this straight from the outset: I love the first two Distillers records (Coral Fang was weak in my view) and I am punk through and through. And this album is not punk. But that doesn't make it bad, and certainly doesn't make it any sort of "sell out" or "betrayal", both things I have read people say foolishly about Spinnerette's debut.

Everyone needs to evolve as a person through their life; it's what keeps us interesting and challenging. What Brody Dalle has done here is a magnificent, confident evolution from furious punk siren into a fully rounded musician.

The songs are very highly produced, and have a feel of some of the early 90's post-industrial scene at times, with - yes, I know - a sprinkling of QoTSA and at times a hint of Garbage (not a compliment, but as a whole it works fine). What has bowled me over though is the sheer intensity and darkness of the album, even though it has plenty of humour and a much more "pop" feel than anything Brody has done before.

It has a deep, confrontational sexuality running through it, and an offbeat, minor-key melody which, interwoven with the powerful, multi-layered production just creates something monumental.

Stand out tracks are Ghetto Love, Geeking and Baptized by Fire but, to be honest, there isn't a bad track on here.

Don't expect the Distillers nitro-fuelled hard core, it isn't here, but come with an open mind and this could well blow you away. Play it loud - it's the best album I have heard this year.

BUY THIS ALBUM!

I'm a big fan of The Distillers, always have been and always will be. But I have to say, this album is UNREAL!!! Possibly better than her previous releases... Don't kill me! :P :)

Yes, it's totally different, but that's a good thing! I hate when singers start up a new band and it just sounds like their old band anyway!

This album is refreshing, different and goddamn catchy!

Infact, dare I say it, it's my favorite record of Brody's to date! I can't wait for a new release! It really is wonderful!! :)

I was a bit worried that Spinnerette would be a let down after The Distillers three amazing albums but thankfully the album is just as good. Different, yes but still very good.

Brody's vocals are more defined and controlled and she sings with more confidence.

There is only one song I don't like (not keen on Impaler although the lyrics are funny).

Best tracks for me are All Babes are Wolves (I thought this would be HUGE), Cupid, The Walking Dead and A Prescription for Mankind.

I bought the Brody Dalle S/T album and was a bit disappointed and I know this was recorded a couple of years before that. This is far superior and a great transition from the Distillers, much punkier and rockier than her self titled album and probably a lot more of what people were lookin for. I absolutely love it

Nice record, but I think Brody tryed too hard to change the sound she created in the Distillers era. Some songs have a different vibe on them, they sound a little bit closer to conventional rock or so. For example, Driving Song, my favourite one. The other ones are ok, but nothing else.

I never liked the distillers, even after seeing them live. Hated the Rancid rip off style, the faux punk attitude and the music. I'm a big Rancid fan - but i'm also a fan of the Oueens of the stone age, so there are many reasons for me to hate this album but I can't, it is actually quite good. Of course there is Josh Homme's big shadow straddling over it but there is also huge chunks of Siouxsie Sioux, Shirley manson and Kim Deal in there too. As an album it has more to do with 90's alt rock than punk or stoner so don't expect a raw dirty sound, overall it is quite processed but because of that it has a sound of its own and for that it is great. Personally speaking it could have been two songs shorter, which is why only 4 stars and there could have been a bit more variation to the song writing. Here's looking forward to the next album, hopefully sooner rather than later, unlike her ex and her current husband who's speed at releasing things is quite slow these days.

I was worried when I heard the first EP. I thought they had lost the edge of the Distillers. But no this is a really GREAT album and well worth a purchase. I cant stop listening to it!
