One of those days, I guess... Browsing for music in the last record shop in my town not to sell coffee, I picked this up on the offchance. And now I can't get enough of it. Disappointing that the only track to get airplay in the UK is 'Bad Babysitter' which is one of the less successful ones on the album: the 'Untouchable' tunes (Parts 1 and 2) are both excellent, and I have a soft spot for any CD which is willing to make fun of itself so completely. Lines like 'You're idle - I'm an idol. You're not entitled - I've got a title.' are delivered with the tongue so firmly in cheek that I'm surprised she can pronounce them at all. One of the five CDs I allowed myself to take back to Russia with me - can't face the winter without it.

Title was just a joke, if you have amazon then you can get on youtube so you know what she's about. "The female Eminem" lol, she has some skill but it isn't all about rap or hip hop it is everything NYC has to offer with influences from the likes of Public Enemy to Salt N Pepa mashed up with pop, dance, electronica and funk. She is more of an artist than most, she has a style that is her own and it just depends if you like it or not. I would recommend if your downloading to go for: Wet! wet! wet!, Dichotomy, Who writes your lyrics, Your get mad at napster and We Got Panache. If you don't like em then might not be for you.

Why? Because I'm a nasty cynic who doesn't always believe the hype. But "Princess Superstar Is" blew me out of my chair, chuckling and bouncing I was. Unlike the half-cooked female rappers that she resents being compared to, Princess Superstar ain't no sassy fool on a noodle designertrip. She's the Black Shirley Temple whose been around for a long time, cept she's white. HOLD ON, IT'S A LYRIC. Princess has assembled a wicked cast and frankly this album is on point. Hardcore funk with some bad lyrical licks. One of the most original albums of the year no doubt. If you like your Kool Keith, Quasimoto, Company Flow, Tribe--you know grimy but fat, CHECK THIS OUT.

i love this album. not only is Concetta Krischner a cunning linguist, but she actually takes time to make the music fantastic as well. The album manages to remain consisently brilliant but diverse, full of vicous humour, porno fantasies and top class production from the likes of DJ Mighty Mi, Mr.Len, Curtis Curtis and the Superstar herself. My favorite tracks are Super Fantasy, Wet!Wet!Wet!

This is an awful album with bog-standard production and corny clichéd lyrics. Princess Superstar is simply a popstar whose gimmick happens to be rapping. And that's all it is a gimmick, there's absoltely no talent to her rapping and this is just fodder for those who criticise "middle-class eminem-loving white kids" for thinking they're into rap.
"Bad Babysiter" is the perfect example, with its shoddy beat and dodgy lyrics. The video for it is as nasty as the song but the worst thing of all is hearing Princess Superstar trying to put hint of attitude into her voice. It ends up sounding like a D-list actor's attempt at sounding from "New Yoik". This is truly one to be avoided.
