Janet Panic The Girl Who Passed For Normal

The lead track is so neatly catchy that it’s an effort to stay interested afterwards, like a porno after the payoff. A kick-ass beat, a cool riff and one clever metaphor, in triplicate, makes "Hockey Song" the early favourite, but its successors are still worth your time. A shameless, yet forgivable, Air pastiche is among the dynamic, mid-tempo pop rock sounds that colour the rest of the album, Panic’s second solo CD, post-Vancouver’s 10 Ft. Henry. Far from perfect, yet perfectly decent, this album has a pro touch that brilliantly complements Panic’s qualities. And she’s not signed?
