Out of Veruca Salt's three albums, this is definitely the most unique and accessible. One word really sums this album up: Rock. You want to REALLY Rock? Get this album. It's full of amazing vocals by Nina Gordon and Louise Post derived from their impressive song-writing and musical collaboration. It's really too bad that this band is so underrated, becuase they are really brilliant.
Stand-outs of the album are:
"Straight," which is angry, loud, and full of passion.
"Volcano Girls," which has great guitar riffs, AMAZING vocals, and a great flow to it. This song is the reason I got the album.
"Don't Make Me Prove it" is sonically and lyrically a masterpiece.
"Shutterbug" is perhaps the best song on the entire album (but "Volcano Girls" and "Earthcrosser" give it high competition).
"With David Bowie" has the same pop-influenced rock that is reminiscent of "Volcano Girls" and "Awesome."
"Earthcrosser" is the most suspenseful, rocking song on the whole album. It's the best way to end the journey through this amazing collection of songs - with a mixture of quiet vocals followed by loud, shrieking guitar riffs and Nina screaming the best line of the entire album: "Where's my lip gloss?"
In conclusion, I highly recommend purchasing this album. If you are skeptical, download "Volcano Girls" and that skepticism will fade within the first few beats.
