These days, most female rock & metal vocalists fall into one of two main categories. Either they are the angelic and virginal type that use operatic nice vocals, or they fall on the entire other end of the scale and come across as man-hating feminists that think they are the best thing in the universe. This usual recipe has become quite tired and it's refreshing every now and then to find a chick singer that doesn't give a crap about the usual stuff and just wants to rock out. Niki Barr definitely comes across as one that doesn't care about gender too much and just enjoys fronting a good rock band and it's her champion personality as well as her great rock voice that will help her and her band of cohorts take over the globe. Musically the album treads a line between a radio-friendly version of modern hard rock and sleaze rock straight from the Sunset Strip of the eighties. A lot of the songs are simplistic in nature, but as we all know some of the greatest songs ever written were based around simplistic melodic songwriting. Comparisons here are a little tricky but I guess if you can imagine a cross between Kelly Clarkson, Evanescence and Vixen and add the sultriness of sexual front-ladies like Pat Benetar and Chrissie Amphlett and you'll have a fair idea on what's going on here.
