Say Yes to Love

Captured Tracks

 

Perfect Pussy’s Say Yes To Love, comes as a slightly disappointing follow-up to I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling. All the ground-breaking Perfect Pussy pieces are there: the left-of-centre punk tunes, backed by indie synth rock riffs and Meredith Graves’s heavily compressed and challenging vocal style – but the album is ultimately a haphazard collection of songs that fail to meet, or evolve from, the dizzying musical heights of their first release.

Individually, the tracks all share Perfect Pussy’s originality and subversive approach towards punk clichés. Opening track, Driver, is an exceptionally well-crafted synth punk tune, with guitar providing droning, anarchic propulsion to the music. The transition between the refreshingly introspective Interference Fits and ballsy Dig is engaging and very perceptive, and VII caps the album off as a distortion-laden madhouse. However, the album as a whole suffers from repetitive songwriting and a distinct lack of cohesion.
