critics' view

Skunk Anansie's music is as disparate as the members of the band. The multiracial British quartet is fronted by the dynamic Skin, a black feminist whose lyrics and potent delivery demand attention. As a result, the dozen songs on Post Orgasmic Chill are a compelling lot, though too multifarious to give the album real focus. Tool meets 4 Non Blondes? Heart's Ann Wilson on a rant? Skunk Anansie cover many bases with facility; their songs are dynamic and full of surprising twists. Odd bits of orchestration run into aggressive rock, which lead into commercial ballads ("Secretly"). From the crisp metallic spews on "On My Hotel TV" to the "The Skank Heads," which sounds as if it should be part of a musical, Skunk is by turns soulful and sultry, shrill and frantic, but always energetic and fiery. Not an easy band or album to get a handle on; nonetheless, Post Orgasmic Chill is a compelling collection.
