An album that I cannot get out of my CD player. (Gordoja@aol.com)
I found this cheap, and it's worth the price - neat stripey-shiny-papered booklet, the so-catchy danceable (if one danced) 'Girl like you', and lots of cute quirky beeps and blips. I'm not so keen on her persona (or personality) - a bitchy manipulative temptress shows up on several songs (not a compelling one, more cutesy and bland). Still, good electronic pop, great choruses, and enough oddness and melancholy melodies to offset the mercilously cute nature of the beeps. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
