CD Reviews

These girls are hip & strong, but not hard. Great writing!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"They give a relaxed, high-energy show that you do not want to miss! Their CD is filled with songs I can NOT quit singing!!! Hey, when's the next album...and why aren't these chicks famous yet?!?!"
A band best seen live
(4 out of 5 stars)

"On their website, Ultrababyfat said they wanted to capture as much of the energy of their live shows as possible on this disc. Unfortunately, they had limited success. There's a lot of solid power pop on "Silver Tones Smile (my favorite is "Bent On"), and Bhowmik and Dubois definitely know how to write a tune. However, the sounds captured in the studio don't match the intensity the band achieves in concert. Nonetheless, this is a band that deserves your support. Don't miss a chance to see them live (currently, they're opening for the Man...or Astro-Man? Clone Project Gamma tour), and make room in your collection for this disc. You'll be glad you did."
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply put, this CD rocks. Shonali Bhowmik and Michelle Dubois bring a much needed lift to the very stale genre of female vocalists. If you're tired of hearing the droning melodramatic angst of the present crop of female singers, Ultrababyfat has a unique sound that no one can match. The tunes are catchy but not kitschy... so whatever you find memorable about a particular song won't be because it sounds like a jingle from a Coke commercial. This album cuts a decent social commentary without taking itself too seriously. Check out "Water." It's a great track."
