    I really liked her work with the Hacker and Felix the Housecat, and I loved her RadioCaroline CD. This, however, is a major disappointment. It?s disjointed, boring, and never adds up to much. It?s too self-conscious, and she seems to spend a lot of the album lamenting her celebrity, but really, I just don?t care. There are two or three good tracks, especially those produced by the Hacker, I really liked her work with the Hacker and Felix the Housecat, and I loved her RadioCaroline CD.

Electroclash is over, the glitz and glamour are old hat, and it?s hard to make a career out of speaking accented English. Expand

  1. I Com thus presents a new model for electroclash artists: it still exhibits some hallmarks of impersonal club music, but it also offers a (presumably genuine) glimpse inside the private diary of Miss Kittin.
  2. She writes beats and creates streetwise slithery DogPop with b-lines and brawn and occasionally shows us that wide-open vulnerability is as vital and visceral as virulent heartsteppin’ sin-sharing.
  3. She has winnowed her dueling personas -- brilliant techno-inflected DJ and haughtily self-aware vocalist -- into a fantastically complete, wildly inventive package that offers the lunatic best of both badass sides.
