Loud, outspoken and terribly underrated.

Veruca Salt has gone through some changes over the past 10 years. Started by chicago-born Nina Gordon and Louise Post, EIGHT ARMS was their second album. And what an album it was.
Brimming with hauntingly layered lyrics and riffs that lodge themselves in your mind, EIGHT ARMS shows the band find their footing after a promising debut. Highlights include "Volcano Girls", an MTV hit (so much so it was used in the film "Jawbreaker"), "Sound of the Bell", "Stoneface", "Venus Man Trap" and "One Last Time".
Okay, so the clashing of Post's love of some very hard rock with Gordons leanings towards Pop can be distracting at times (Putting the very pleasant "The Morning Sad" straight after the brooding "Shutterbug" wasn't very wise) but when Veruca Salt works there's rarely anything better in the "Riot Girl" genre.
