Kiss It Goodbye - _She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not_
(Revelation, 1997)
by: Zena Tsarfin (9 out of 10)
Imagine yourself inside the mind of a madman; eavesdropping on his inner thoughts and self-examinations, bearing witness to his precarious contemplations and angry bouts. Now imagine that voice had a soundtrack filled with avant-jazz start/stop spurts of rage and eeriness. Welcome to _She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not_, the debut album from Kiss It Goodbye. The transplanted Seattlites have created a cacophonous brew of hardcore, noise, and some old-school evil in the style of Deadguy, which isn't surprising since both KIG's singer and guitarist were members of the aforementioned band. Narrative-style, angry-white-male lyrics only serve to give the intense rhapsodies a personal touch, and for every contemplative "Hartley" and "Ammunition" there's a ferocious "Helvetica" and "Manthing". While this haunting noisecore record isn't for everyone, for those voyeurs that can appreciate the dissonance of Neurosis and the Unsane, _She Loves Me..._ will be a head trip they won't soon forget.
