Review ·

From the diary of your local teenage goth/misunderstood cigarette-smoking misanthrope comes She Wants Revenge. Blatantly copping Interpol's monotone singing and the darkly synthetic dance rhythms of just about every other band (but most transparently Depeche Mode), She Wants Revenge attempts, on its self-titled debut, to create an air of mystery and sexual allure out of little more than Adam Bravin's blandly processed (and interchangeable) electro beats and Justin Warfield's predictable end-rhyme couplets, such as this from "Out of Control": "The lights that move sideways and up and down/ The beat takes you over and spins you 'round." With the exceptionally catchy "Tear You Apart" and "Red Flags and Long Nights," as exceptions, the monotone theme - both lyrically and musically - of She Wants Revenge is ultimately a self-fulfilling prophecy: If you try to be all the same, people will think you're all the same.
