CORY STRAND "THE MOTHERFUCKING PRINCESS" CDr (AOW 64)
The third volume in my loose "pop ingenue" series takes the saccharine work of Avril Lavigne as source and becomes a belching monument to overproduction and a distorted refraction of teenage yearning as envisioned by middle aged songwriters and the manufactured sass of a woman masquerading as an irreverent brat. Everything here is process and a dissection of feeling, taking something that might once have been real and tearing it asunder from the outside in, revealing the rampant, vacant emptiness hidden behind the promise of past experience and illusory connections. Towering halls of lockers and the japing sneers of hundreds of twisted mouths, all snarling collectively in one direction. Have you lived through this one too? A brutal 80 minutes of shredding wall vomit.
