"Badasser" (Supernova; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Christine is a multi-faceted, female-fronted clan whose fearless dive into a bevy of genres makes up their latest 13-track affair, "Badasser."

Discovered and produced by Today is the Day visionary Steve Austin, this Nashville, TN quartet toe the line between sinewy stoner metal, atmospheric shoegaze, and whiskey-soaked Southern rock on cuts like "Sheep in Wolf's Skin," "Motherfucker," and "Juandice."

Blending the works of Alabama Thunderpussy, Kyuss, Mazzy Star, and Jucifer into a potpourri of kick ass rock cohesion, Christine displays what a wild ride through the backwoods of Anytown, USA feels like. Using versatility to the fullest, Christine implements an intriguing array of unlikely stylistic twists and turns while maintaining a heavy-handed fuzz rock foundation throughout, showcasing not only their unique perspective but also this quartet's solid grooving chops along the way.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
