Imelda's raw energy and great vocals set to top drawer compositions makes this one great album.Its really quite hard to pigeonhole Imelda's musical style, the best attempt I can come up with is that it is an eclectic mix of 50's genres with a hefty dollup of rockabilly doghouse bass. My only critisim I can think of, is that I felt a few of the tracks ( Mayhem and Psycho come to mind ) could be best described as pop rockabilly, which probably helped in giving her music the broad appeal that put it right into number one in the Irish charts, though I can forgive this as, like the Stray cats in the 80's it has introduced a whole new generation to a fine and alternative genre of music you just dont hear on the radio these days. All in all here is an artist that can deservedly be counted among female Rockabilly legends such as Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin. Ireland, be very proud of this girl.
