  • Summary: The third album for the all-girl Canadian metal band was produced by Steve Thompson (Anthrax, Korn).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 2 out of 7
  1. Kittie's most fully-realised and, for non-metalheads, approachable album yet.
  2. Has more melody and memorable riffs than the band's previous two albums.
  3. While siblings Morgan and Mercedes Lander's songwriting has improved since 2001's Oracle, there's still an air of mediocrity to later tracks like "Loveless" and "Burning Bridges" that shows an adherence to formulaic modern metal clichés, and a lack of confidence on some of the vocal takes that makes some of the songs sound like demos.

    Makes like the spawn of Hole and Hatebreed. [Sep 2004, p.120]
  5. 60
    They still have plenty of growl left in them. [Aug 2004, p.133]
  6. Tenaciously mindless and effortlessly grim.
  7. Kittie are rubbish, with a permanent lyrical setting of "Feel A Bit Miserable, Parents Don't Understand Me" and no original ideas whatsoever. [21 Aug 2004, p.49]

    I love this band. I love this album. The person who said the context of Kittie's lyrics are mainly "Parents don't understand me" is I love this band. I love this album. The person who said the context of Kittie's lyrics are mainly "Parents don't understand me" is a moron. I'm sorry, but this person obviously has never heard a full Kittie song in their lives. "SO WUT LOL!" Why is this person reviewing an album that they haven't heard? Expand

    This is an excellent album. It would be a good reccomendation to anyone who likes the band KiTTiE or heavy metal music. This album has This is an excellent album. It would be a good reccomendation to anyone who likes the band KiTTiE or heavy metal music. This album has heavier riffs and hardcore vocals than KiTTiE's second album "Oracle". Expand

    Now. I rated this a 10 because I don't bias when it comes to selling out, which Kittie did right after Spit. But I do love Kittie. Now. I rated this a 10 because I don't bias when it comes to selling out, which Kittie did right after Spit. But I do love Kittie. Morgan Lander's Demon-esque growls are annoying to others, hardcore to some. Morgan Lander has also developed some pipes over the years. I am looking forward to there being more emphasis on a better growl, and vocals backing up those growls, like in "Severed". Kittie has most certainly matured & gained more talent over the years.
