Gossip – A Joyful Noise (Album Review)

Singer Beth Ditto has entered her dirty thirties, and she seems to have shed the squirrel-eating, deodorant-eschewing, spunk-punk persona she cultivated during her 20s. Rather surprisingly, she has emerged from her chrysalis as sleek, coiffed dance princess. From the opening of first track Melody Emergency, which grooves along to the purr of distortion and a slinky beat, this album sounds different from previous Gossip releases. The punk edges have been smoothed off by emery-board wielding producer Brian Higgins (Sugarbabes, Kylie Minogue).
