We R in Need of a Musical Revolution [EP] [Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Esthero follows her summer 2004 comeback single and dancefloor hit "O.G. Bitch" with the We R in Need of a Musical Revolution EP. The title track updates the sound of Esthero's 1998 debut with propulsive programming and more Björk in her vocal than ever before.

"I Drive Alone" is a trip-hop throwback, and the gentle "Amber and Tiger's Eye" is seven minutes in dreamy Esthero heaven. Best might be "Gone," her collaboration with Cee-Lo that flutters between R&B, mournful harmony, and a mild electronic pace.
