Skunk Anansie are huge largely because of Skin's looks, hairstyle (or lack thereof) and lungpower. In every other sense they perpetuate a brand of bland toned-down metal for the 90s. Thus, it is somewhat surprising to gear snippets of drum n' bass at the beginning and end of several songs.
Unfortunately, these sounds are never developed enough before the group indulges itself in yet another boring chord sequence. They'll find it very difficult to find another even half-decent single off this.
