  • Summary: The all-girl metal band's sophomore effort (and no, we're not referring to their high school class) includes a cover of Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell."

  1. Oracle sees Kittie moving from novelty status to bone-crushing legitimacy. [Jan 2002, p.86]
  2. 70
    Kittie still spew the alternately golden-throated and throat-shredding thrash of their 2000 debut, Spit. [Dec 2001, p.154]
  3. A much more brutal and vicious record than its predecessor.
  4. Kittie sound like they want to pursue harder extremes but can't decide whether to snicker or snarl, to play doomsayer or dominatrix.
  5. 40
    There's nothing here that you couldn't hear blaring out of a thousand suburban garages on any Saturday night. [#4, p.118]
  6. Such one-dimensional plodders as Mouthful Of Poison and Pain are as uninspired as their titles. [#184, p.139]
  7. Too often, the follow-up to their 600,000-selling debut 'Spit', is plain overbearing, a violent marriage of melody and brutality that makes for a highly uneasy listen.
