I Am X Kiss And Swallow
- Words: Alexander Posell
- Label: Recall
Kiss and Swallow, the debut solo effort from Sneaker Pimps' Chris Corner, is excellently produced. It also wears its influences on its sleeve, coming off as both over-conceived and over-indulgent. While there are certainly some good dancefloor moments amidst this flashback to the NIN/EBM/Cabaret Voltaire days, one can't help thinking there's a bit more ego-stroking going on here than is absolutely necessary. We know, we know, musicians are megalomaniacs, but a little less studio sheen and a little more grit could have brought this project to its full potential.
