    Dalle has her bite back. [Jul 2014, p.104]

    It's a riotous and brazenly euphoric form of rock'n'roll.

    Brody Dalle's first solo album begins with a bang.

    While several songs do need an editor--"Dressed In Dreams" in particular drags quite a bit--the record's honesty and vulnerability are inspiring.

    Diploid probably has some ace songs, but you'll need an industrial belt sander to uncover them. [No. 109, p.55]

    It’s an admirable attempt at maturity, but Diploid Love drains the energy from Dalle's music, along with its heart.
  7. 50
    Dalle’s return performance, no matter how energetic and strong musically, lacks the lyrical details to latch onto.

    A decent rock album that has a few fine tracks with great vocals and guitar work, and other okay ones that didn't catch my attention in anyA decent rock album that has a few fine tracks with great vocals and guitar work, and other okay ones that didn't catch my attention in any special way.

    My favorite tracks are "Meet The Foetus/Oh The Joy", "Carry On", and "Underworld".
