Album Review

Rasputina's supernatural approach in making music is impressive, because it's independent of the goth rock that came before the band and especially alone in the current mainstream. It's practically primitive, but positively so. Cabin Fever, Rasputina's third studio album, casts a dark dreamscape of lush string arrangements and grating cellos, and Melora Creager's sinister scowl is at its best.

"The Hunter's Kiss" plays around with that notion with its twirling cellos and storybook lyrics. The goth rock element shifts once again, and Cabin Fever suggests that Rasputina's corsets aren't too tight.
