Hi I am Troy McClure you may remember from such reviews as…. This album has it all rocking guitars hot chicks and misplaced Juvenile aggression.This album all and all was DYNOMITE !
Like Josie & the Pussycats with sharper Claws. This London, Ontario four piece have been featured in Rolling Stone & Spin magazines as well as being interviewed on MTV. Production by GGGarth Richards (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Ozzy Osbourne). 12 tracks on an enhanced CD. 2000 release. Standard jewel case.This is exactly what Tipper Gore feared. Expose your bored daughters to the toxic combination of heavy-metal death fantasies, punk-rock nihilism, violent rap misogyny, and fuck-me feminism, and Kittie is what you get. This band belies the notion that the only rock from Canada is either by hollow-voiced sirens or is over-intellectualized prog-rock. The fact that all of the band’s members are still in high school is almost incidental, as Spit contains a maturity and insight, not to mention a musicianship, not usually ascribed to the under-21 set. Consider the lyrics to ”Paperdoll,” which addresses stereotypical images of women: ”They try her on for size / She fits nice / One size fits all….” All four members are strong musicians, but special notice must be paid to lead singer Morgan Lander, who whispers kitten-soft one second and lets loose an ear-shattering howl the next. Kittie’s aggressive, full-bore music, in the grand tradition of Babes in Toyland and L7, pulls no punches and makes no compromise. –Genevieve Williams

Kittie coming straight out of…….nowhere just clawed the music scene with, yeah I was shocked too, talent. Rock music hasn’t been doing much of anything lately but thankfully Kittie have arrived to, uh, rock! They may look gothic (can’t blame them for good taste), but this isn’t gothic music, though “Immortal” has a gothic touch to it. Indeed, this is more like Pantera than Bauhaus. The lead singer, Morgan, can go from feminine vocals to Philip Anselmo faster than my black cat could retract her claws (yeah, I know, these girls already have enough cat jokes). Mercedes is an amazing drummer and Fallon and Talena riff with the best of them. A very talented group at a very young age. The best songs are “Spit”, “Charlotte”, “Brackish” and “Paperdoll”. At times these songs sound like the last but that’s okay, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. These songs are harder than Marilyn Manson and Coal Chamber combined, they’d scare off those Hot Topic ‘goth-metal’ bozos that have been going around like the plague (and just like the plague, avoid that poseur stuff). This is a very strong debut, but I know their next CD will wipe out the compitition. I read how a lot of people say stuff like ‘wow, chicks’. Remember, Britney Spears is a woman too, but she hasn’t done anything important. Kittie are loud, dirty, explicit, angry fun. Seeing as this is metal, I can’t think of a better compliment.
Listen up people, this is a great band! They rock harder thanHole at their hardest and they have good lyrics. This is a Canadian band and they’re not getting any support in Canada. They’ll only get support on Canadian rock radio if they’re played in the U.S. Any metal fan will appreciate a girl band that goes where few females have gone before. Kittie deserve to be out there. Buy this CD and show some support for a great band!
Metal. Usually it’s from guys who have attitude problems and scream because they can’t sing. Kittie. A heavy metal band (real metal too, none of this rap/metal stuff) that doesn’t have any guys, has brains, and can sing. Imagine that. The lyrics are intelligent, the riffs are awesome, and you can’t help but bang your head. The boys of Pantera would be proud. Unlike todays trend of throwing a bunch of musical genres into a pot and trying to pass it off as something new, this is pure metal. Well, the last two tracks aren’t, but I’m getting to that. Metal like Pantera, Anthrax, and the younger Metallica. Screams, crunch, destroy. Yes, that type of metal. The first track “Spit” is amazing. Morgan’s screams are enough to pop your ear-drums. But she also can sing better than Britney Spears. “Charlotte” is the best example of this. The softer “Paperdoll” too. “Suck” is great, my favorite part is the break in the song, then Morgan blows up. The drumming is powerful. Mercedes is one of the best drummers out right now. Just listen to “Brackish”. “Jonny” is another great song. The riffs are awesomw. Pretty much any song shows that. The last song “Immortal” is a gothic instrumental. I really like it too, it sounds more like an intro, but that’s besides the point. This is a classic metal album. Go get it.
