I'm curious to know how much longer Peaches can maintain her bad girl image without slipping into mediocrity, knocking out pseudo Kylie electro riffs into old age. Well you'll be pleased to hear that there's still life in Peaches yet though 'I Feel Cream' does hint at early signs that she may be mellowing out. Title track Serpentine (i don't give a...pt 2) features a delicate whispered vocal over a minimal old school style Timberland groove. It's slightly more subtle than the vocal delivery on the majority of tracks but it still packs the usual lyrical sting. Songwriting collaborations with Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism and Gonzales make up the majority of the album. Digitalism and Gonzales tend not to stray from the peaches production formula of previous outings yet they still have there moments and help maintain the uncompromising, harsh approach we have become familiar with. 'Lose you' and 'I feel cream' in collaboration with Simian Mobile Disco work best for me and support the theory that Peaches is definitely mellowing out. Graceful vocal performance over a smooth and luscious electro pop definitely suggests a mellowing of attitude and a subtle change in direction. This is no bad thing though and these are my favorite tracks on the record which probably means that i've heard enough of the traditional Peaches formula and am happy to embrace something light and fluffy. If you feel the same then you'll enjoy this record too
