Screaming Females - Ugly

Though the band brought in legendary producer Steve Albini to produce the bands fifth album; it seems to serve as mere footnote for what is shaping up to be one of the best albums of this listeners 2012. Lucky for us, Mr. Albini knows when to tinker and when to just sit back and let a band work its own magic. That magic for me and just about everyone familiar with the band, has always been the amazingly unique  beautifully cutting voice of Marissa Paternoster.
A gift that is only matched by her amazing guitar wizardry. Not to take anything away from the band. It's just a matter of simple fact. "Ugly" is just so insanely great with all of it's elements of schizophrenic beauty. One just can't he;p but be blown away. There's not a wasted note on these fourteen songs. Not one loose note. I could go into so many details but that would just delay your running out and getting each and every one of this amazing bands five albums.  James Damion
