Princess Superstar My Machine
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: !K7-The Corrupt Conglomerate
Princess Superstar‘s never lacked chutzpah (subtlety, yes), so the "I wanna be famous" chorus on "Famous" rings true. But this album-a collision of hip-hop, electro, and punk rock-dissects fame more deeply, too; a "concept album," the tracks revolve around a future where PS clones herself repeatedly and takes over the celebrity world. Sometimes this works-the interludes are hilarious-and sometimes, with all the supposed time traveling, it‘s just confusing. One of the best tracks, "Quitting Smoking Song," doesn‘t even stick to the premise, but as long as she‘s this good, who cares?
