All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
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 pseudo-classical chaos of "AntiqueHighHeelRedDollShoes" and "Thimble Island" is invasive and the metal distortion of "Sweet Water Kill The Ocean Song" struts with Siouxsie Sioux appeal. K.

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 pseudo-classical chaos of "AntiqueHighHeelRedDollShoes" and "Thimble Island" is invasive and the metal distortion of "Sweet Water Kill The Ocean Song" struts with Siouxsie Sioux appeal. K. Cowperthwaite and Nana Bornant complete the trio's fascination with 19th century imagery, and the band's typical musical menagerie of psychosis "Cross Walk" and humor "PJ + Vincent & Matthew + Bjork" isn't terribly melancholy. "A Quitter" captures the band's unique sound structure: It's charming with a dream pop aesthetic; however, Rasputina's finer moments sustain a soft spot for a romantic fabliau. "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.

    You've never heard a band like this before

    I've been a Rasputina fan ever since the release of their first album "Thanks For The Ether". Every album I have heard by them has earned a regular spot in my CD player, and this album is no exception. The music is so unique and experimental (in a good way), and it has a ethereal feel throughout. Lyrically, the album is almost like a collection of short stories, with each song having a emotional range from sad to serious to silly. If you find your music dial to be stuck on dull, and have been searching for something new and intriguing, "Cabin Fever" comes highly recommended.
