I have always been a fan of female-fronted rock bands, but especially of female-fronted bands that crank the amps up to 11. Veruca Salt is exactly the sort of band I am predestined to enjoy. They rock hard, the harmonize perfectly, and they write great songs.
If you aren't a child of the 90's, Eight Arms to Hold You might sound a little dated. For a nostalgia nerd such as myself, it still sounds vibrant and vital. "Volcano Girls" still sounds like a hit, "Awesome" still sounds awesome, and "David Bowie" scratches the itch of my man-crush on Ziggy Stardust. So yeah, this is a perfect album for me. I can understand other people not enjoying it as much, but it's practically tailor made for my tastes.
