  • Summary: Fresh off the electroclash touring circuit (and apparently in need of a good shave), ever-vulgar Canadian Merrill Nisker (aka Peaches) follows her 2000 debut 'The Teaches of Peaches' with 12 new tracks, including a duet with Iggy Pop.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 20

    Peaches hasn't suffered from the sophomore slump one bit. [#23, p.96]
  2. Now grafting meaty guitars and ferocious singing onto her minimal electronic beats, she summons the very spirit of rock & roll. [26 Sep 2003, p.95]
  3. 80
    A combination of fierce electro-clash, stabbing rock riffs, and the rudest raps on the planet. [Oct 2003, p.118]
  4. 75
    Peaches seems to be having much more fun with her sleazy subject matter. [Nov 2003, p.116]
  5. The album largely treads the same brazen minimal-electro territory; and most of the dick/tits/cunt-centric songs will be familiar for anyone who's seen Peaches' girlie-show shows in full-frontal effect over the past couple years.
  6. Peaches seems to intentionally drop the ball throughout Fatherfucker.
  7. The beats on Fatherfucker are not only frustratingly simplistic, but the energy and surprising rhythmic complexity of the vocals on her debut are noticeably absent, too.

    This recording is an Electro disco punk slam that captures the real down and dirty esscence of pure rock and roll -- It rocks!

    If you're looking for punk-electronica, this is it. More great Bikini Kill meets electronica meets rap. Not as crisp as "Teaches...", but it definitely still kicks. It has more of a basic rock flavor, more hip-hop, too. Expand

    Not something that I'd want to listen to all the time, but good electroclash dirty party music. Peaches is dirrrtay!

    Nothing here that others have not done better and more subtly, from Chrissie Hynde to Li'l Kim. If she weren't white, would she even have a recording contract? Expand

    peaches is so desperate to shock us. ooh, she's got HAIRY ARMPITS! shes totally challenging me and the rest of the western male misogynistic conspiracy! i mean, this album is a real threat to the power structure we've got going here! did you hear me, people? ARMPIT HAIR! Let's riot! . . no seriously, i had the extreme displeasure to see peaches live. this is not 'rock and roll', people. this is not music. this is aimed squarely at 15 year olds desperately trying to challenge the status quo. this is juvenile and shitty. if you like this, you dont really like music, plain and simple.
