9/10 Brian Staff review, 08 December 2011
Well XL have chosen roughly the tenth anniversary of the original release of this bad-ass album to unleash its much needed vinyl reissue on pink wax. First generation vinyl copies of this amazing fem-power classic go for a fortune as it not only dominated everywhere from the gay clubs, the straight clubs, the glitzy electroclash scene, the indie clubs and the grubby European squat scene. It tore even bigger holes in the myth that you need a considerable budget to make a smash hit electronic album. If you haven't heard this dirty, sleazy, sexy, scuzzy slab of DIY electro and sexually liberating rap then you're quite frankly missing an absolute treat. The beats are still so raw and sharp, the synths warm grungy astral & fuzzed-out and Peaches herself is the biggest draw in town as she lets forth a stream of purple prose that would make Prince blush over an itchy, skeletal rhythmic backdrop that has your feet burning with desire for any kind of dancefloor. Seriously, this is one of the greatest albums of the '00s. Don't let her later excursions into cheeseville put you off, this is absolutely the cat's fanny.
