The Gossip Standing in the Way of Control
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Kill Rock Stars
On this dance-punk trio‘s fascinating previous effort Movement, vocalist Beth Ditto sang like a banshee clawing the inside of her tortured soul clean. But throw Fugazi legend Guy Piciotto behind the mixing desk and all of sudden Ditto turns into a disco chanteuse, repressing her cathartic screams to let her inner sultry diva take charge of the dancefloor. No matter; Ditto and company still remain some of Kill Rock Stars‘ finest noisemakers, and thumpers like "Jealous Girls," "Keeping You Alive," and "Listen Up!" coolly keep The Gossip‘s vibe alive and kicking.
