Perfect Mix of Punk and Glam...

(5 out of 5 stars)
"...I hate to use tired labels, but it's true. You've got the flare and spunk of glammy rock (think New York Dolls, T-Rex, etc.) as well as the attitude and drive of early poppy punk (Buzzcocks, etc.)... it's absolute wonderful fabuliciousness. This is one of the best albums I own, and last I counted I had just over 1,500 CDs, so no small feat there. After listening to this CD, all I want to do is stir up s**t, but in the most stylish way possible. Lots of glitter invloved. If you like Siamese Dream era Smashing Pumpkins, especially "Geek USA" and "Cherub Rock," or if you enjoy the crazy stuff off Nirvana's collection Incesicide ("Sliver," "Son of a Gun," etc.), you ought to like this. Of course, Pop Heiress is Chainsaw Kittens' best album, and it is not available here. Alas. Still. Buy everything they've ever done. It's all great."
The Biggest Disappointment of the 90's
Big B | Rocklahoma, USA | 01/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The biggest disappointment of the 90's is that Tyson and crew never made it to the heights of the Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana. The Chainsaw Kittens are the most under rated band of the "alternative" genre. If you have never heard of the Kittens, do yourself a favor and buy this album along with Violent Religion. You will not be disappointed."
The Next Big Thing Album
Big B | 02/15/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Their first album, 1990's Violent Religon, stirred up quite a bit of buzz for Norman, Oklahoma's Chainsaw Kittens. By the time 1992 rolled around they had reached near-Next Big Thing status. They got a short column-length feature in Rolling Stone. "High in High School" and "Connie I've Found the Door" were all over college radio. Butch Vig produced their album. Spike Jonez produced one of their music videos. But a drag-queen singer was too much for Middle America and the Chainsaw Kittens slow and painful descent into where ever they are now was the result. Butch Vigs grungy fingerprints are all over the place here. Everywhere. Tyson is reduced to the role of Singer and, though it all sounds very slick and marketable, though it all sounds very good when the stereo is turned up, Flipped Out in Singapore lacks the heart of Violent Religon. The heart and the soul. That's not to say it isn't a fine album. It is. It could be argued that, in fact, Flipped out... is the Kittens most consistent album. The songs compliment each other and flow well. And they're all wonderful. The sound here is the problem. Still: Buy it."
