Going out with a Bang, 21 Aug. 2001
Skunk Anansie's final album is simply stunning, with great atmosphere. Skin's voice adds a touch that is not replicated by any other band or album, and she can portray great emotion (particularly anger) in a song. I had previously heard Stoosh and wasn't that keen, but I then saw Mark Richardson (the drummer) playing this live at a drumming festival and thought it was incredible, so I had another go at Stoosh. It now occupies a permanent spot in my CD player.
Great effort seems to have been put into POC to make sure that every track is exciting and involving, and the whole band seem to really get into making the music. They also get the listeners involved in... er... listening to the music - the sound just makes you want to strum along with Ace, scream with Skin, and as Skunk go out with a bang, you'll be banging on some imaginary drums with them. Great stuff.
