What happens when you take The Smashing Pumpkins, and put them all on Prozac? Catherine! This album it great, it sounds a lot like The Smashing Pumpkins, but there is a reason for this Catherine was bumming equipment from The Smashing Pumpkins. James Iha, which is fitting since drummer Kerry Brown was married to The Pumpkin's bassist D'arcy at the time. This album has a lot going for it, it's a happy album, even on some songs like "Punch me out" and "Pink floyd poster" seem to be down in the dumps, it still has a playfullness and perkiness to it, which is the strongest thing about this album. The weekess of the album would have to be almost repitive drumming on some songs, like "Whipser" and "Don't touch me there" could have used a little more sonic. Other than this, it's still an exceptional album. There is a lot of guest appearanced on this album, including Kerry's old lady. All in all, this is an exceptional album and should add nicely to your collection.

Highlights - "Sign of the Cross", "Punch Me Out", "Cotton Candy High"
Drawbacks - "Vegas Glam", "Blacklight"

Reviewer Rating of CD :

I bought this CD sealed in a box at the local Goodwill. I'm glad I only had to spend about fifty cents on it.

But that's a bit harsh. The only real reason I grabbed this CD was a perverse attraction to the thought of D'arcy trying to sing (again). The album, overall, isn't too bad. There are a few songs that remain catchy to me (Four Leaf Clover included) but you'd be hard pressed to find me digging for the flimsy paper case Hot Saki came in just to listen to a few songs.

In the same vein that many people collect horrible Smashing Pumpkins or Zwan concert recordings, you may want to have a listen at this decent CD. But if you're looking to really get into a band, try elsewhere. Hot Saki just isn't that good.
