ROCK: Modern Rock, BLUES: Acoustic Blues
"In a band e-mail recently sent out to promote an upcoming show, the members of Generic You quip, "Come and see it before it's all over -- our singer might be jumping out a window soon." That singer would be Timmie Boose, formerly of the underappreciated Critikill, and indeed, Boose's up-and-down emotions are painted all over Generic You's superb debut.
Even more volatile than Boose's oft-inflamed emotional state, however, is her voice. No longer blanketed in Critikill's bustle of steely electronics, Boose's distinctive drawl -- all deadpan delivery and lyrics that sting like a perturbed mud dauber -- comes to the forefront on GU2. "Something about you is bothering me," Boose snarls on "Something About You," sounding as if her tongue is forked and her heart pumps ice water. She's backed by twinkling chimes, a lazy beat, and guitars that reverberate in the distance. It's a nice counterbalance to all of Boose's melodrama, making this band go down a bit easier than the brusque Critikill.
Elsewhere, Generic You takes on fractured blues via "Paradigm," a song that conjures up images of Jon Spencer with his legs broken; pitch-black dirges that are equal parts Sabbath and slow dance("Queen of Drunk Driving"); and tortured torch songs ("Self-Centered Bitch"). The album highlight has to be the band's take on Diamond Head's "Am I Evil," a song popularized by Metallica. Generic You's sultry, sedated version of the tune adds some much-needed sex appeal to the cut, turning it into a sinister, snickering waltz that sounds like Hetfield and Co. drunk on Nyquil."
