THE ALBUM SKUNK ANANSIE
The Week in Review
"Life goes on pretty much as before in Skunk Anansie land - the wee bald lass is still upset about one thing or another, and frankly, the rest of us could care less," declared Andy Gill. "Skin is in strong vocal shape, but still throwing off-target punches at anything from bigotry to media overload," revealed Time Out, while the NME dubbed it: "An astoundingly unsubtle noise which sounds like a chunder of cheetahs in an abattoir." "There's nothing either orgasmic or chilled about their third album," wrote The Guardian. "Riot Grrrl meets Laura Ashley," remarked Uncut. "Unnecessarily shrill and bad-tempered," noted The Times.
Skunk Anansie's Skin appears to have mistaken shrieking for intensity. Her incoherent ranting not only reveals an absence of emotional tone, but will give listeners a headache.
Post Orgasmic Chill (Virgin) will be available from record shops on Monday
