    Weak attempt at trying to branch out their sound. It's not awful, but you won't remember any of it. Really, they'd have been more suited sticking to their gimmick then trying to turn into a band full of pop hooks.

    An amped-up grotesque of torchy vaudeville and European parlor songs that starts as high-concept camp and winds up strangely illuminating. [May 2006, p.105]
  2. Yes, Virginia is hit-or-miss.
  3. Palmer's style is overwhelming: she sings her poetry with such gusto that it crosses from enthusiastic drama to verbose pantomime.
