The Dirty Panties – I Am A Robot

Apparently girl power didn’t die with the demise of the Spice Girls! The Dirty Panties are an all-girl punkrock band who won’t be pushed around, have been around since 2001 but have only just now gotten round to releasing their debut full-length. That’s eleven years! It didn’t stop them from already becoming ‘iconic’ in Vegas and beyond if I am to believe the bio sheet… which I guess puts ‘em right up there with Elvis and Celine Dion?

“I Am A Robot” comes with 13 songs, all of ‘em loud and in your face. Not sure if we needed another cover of “Money (That’s What I Want)” but hey… what you gonna do about it? They try to keep things as varied as possible throughout the album with mixed results (“Overt” and the title track really are crap) and Melanie Ash has a pretty good voice. Unfortunately those are pretty much the only good things about the album. Plus the whole album sounds like it was recorded for 5$.

I don’t mean to be harsh but if this is the best you can come up with after having been around for eleven years, then maybe it just isn’t in the cards for you.
Score: 3 out of 10
