Pummels your chakras into submission

"Though this recording was released in 1997, I would have to file "Save Your Face" under the category "timeless." I know very little about the band Feline: they are defunct, the lead singer and chief song writer is (was) a woman named Grog, the band had a menacing twin guitar attack, and which drummer is playing on this CD depends on how one interprets the portion of the liner notes about the band, which happens to be in something like 4-point type.
Let's move on to what I can attest to. Most tracks---e.g., Just as You Are, Can't Help Myself, and Germane---scream for high volume as they pummel your chakras into submission with shards of sonic energy. (This is a good thing.) The interplay of the twin guitars, the pounding drums, and Ms. Grog's high octane vocals compel many listeners to trash about wildly or to at the very least utter "what was that?" (as if there is an easy answer). The slower numbers allow an opportunity to pick up whatever one has knocked about the room (the revved up numbers may attract poltergeists) and muse about how some of these slower tracks perhaps conjure us Lennon's ghost or at least his muse.
I was indeed lucky to find this jewel in the $2 bin or my favorite CD store and luckier still to have snared the Japanese version of this release, the one with the bonus tracks and the Obi strip.
Most folks I know either flee the room or demand I turn off "Save Your Face." Fly you fools.
