Alternative Press (March, 1994)
Odor of Pears

Naked: Following last year’s My Soiled Edible Panties, OOP again reminds us there was such a thing as cool New Wave. A slow-dance anthem for lesbian goths, "Naughty Girls" draws Missing Persons into a dark alley for a furtive fondle. Black buzzing keyboards suffocate the Banshee-like "Touch Me (I’m a Freak)," a danceably oppressive tune with a delightful refrain: "My scabs are so beautiful." The somber ballad "Once in a Lifetime" tells a conventional love-lost tale, but with mysterious implications.
