My Machine [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Is the self-appointed dancefloor queen Princess Superstar stylish, cynical, and a deliciously empty kind of ironic, or just plain old cloying? Her hardcore fans -- who pride themselves on knowing as much about Fendi as they do Freud -- made their mind up long ago and voted "brilliant," "Goddess," and "diva." My Machine is their wet dream, a nearly 80-minute concept album about 10,000 Princess Superstar clones -- or "Duplicants" -- dominating earth in the year 2080. They are eventually defeated and the whole world learns it's better off without fervent celebrity worship and that one Princess Superstar is enough. Going where Genesis, Pink Floyd, and the other concept album...

Is the self-appointed dancefloor queen Princess Superstar stylish, cynical, and a deliciously empty kind of ironic, or just plain old cloying? Her hardcore fans -- who pride themselves on knowing as much about Fendi as they do Freud -- made their mind up long ago and voted "brilliant," "Goddess," and "diva." My Machine is their wet dream, a nearly 80-minute concept album about 10,000 Princess Superstar clones -- or "Duplicants" -- dominating earth in the year 2080. They are eventually defeated and the whole world learns it's better off without fervent celebrity worship and that one Princess Superstar is enough. Going where Genesis, Pink Floyd, and the other concept album greats wouldn't, My Machine takes wild detours into the heroine's battle with smoking addiction "Quitting Smoking Song", hangs with the sassy "Bad Girls N.Y.C.," and goes downstairs for the femdom anthem "Coochie Coo." The usual scandalous and fun lyrics from the Superstar and her thin but singsongy, playground-catchy melodies are in effect, but this time there's a revolving door of famous dance producers. Jacques Lu Cont, Junior Sanchez, and Armand Van Helden all lend a hand with quirkier than usual takes on their signature sounds while legend Arthur Baker oversees the whole thing. There's plenty of bubbly, sassy, supposedly edgy pop to savor, but the numerous interludes are often knotty bridges that heap a whole lot of ironic storytelling over tuneless note-spinning and sound effect noodling. Buy into the saucy story and it works much better, and to paraphrase the revolutionary Duplicant on "The Death of the Superstar," Superstar is ahead of her time, some of the time. Long stretches between the smirking party jams and the moments of wry brilliance will try the patience of those who don't passionately buy into her "dumb is the new smart" attitude, but Superstar in excess is pithy instead of ponderous to a graduate-level club kid. Freshmen should start with her much more direct Princess Superstar Is before attacking this unwieldy epic.

    Funny for the first 2 songs

    Princess Superstars new effort sounds like a train wreck.Coochie Coo could have been catchy but gets annoying after 30 seconds....Famous is about as original a 1st grader playing with casio keyboard...I like it alot starts strong then fails to deliver...Maybe its the number of influences that the princess is trying to sound like. Well she can always blame the replicants for the problems that this record surrounds itself with...Arthur Baker should just give whatever he was paid back to the superstar so she can regroup and put out a album that is worth a listen.

    Princess Superstar Entering Into Legendary Status

    Princess Superstar has made a definite positive impact on the Hip-Hop & Rap community in a massive underground way that only she could. She is the first to snatch the almighty "First White Female Rap Artist" due to her amazing intellengence of life in New York and Street Life Venues. Witty, Sharp, Fun, Comical, Serious, & Fast Flows are really the only way to best describe her. Put the Princess in a Rock venue and all will applaud as well as any Hip-Hop venue cause she is no stranger to ways of a rock artist, as she continued through out the mid to late 90's she tried out many a different styles with Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, Dance, Electro and just when you'd think she had found her nitch in the sand, she goes on to become a mighty turntablist Dj who not only uses her own material to get the vibe going but with friends like Moby along side her, the beats just grew more intense, spring up a really wicked name to it saying "Dj's Are Not Rockstars". Now we enter into a remarkable period for the Princess, "My Machine" 2005 is looking into the future and with every style that she has known is put to the test, not only does she prove in more ways than 1 that she still has the gift of "Awesome" she now shows us that she is "Legendary" So final thought - Princess Superstar 2005 "My Machine"
