Bif Naked - The PromiseHer recent battle with breast cancer has clearly toughened her up, making Bif’s latest a harder rocking edge than 2004’s more pop-oriented Superbeautifulmonster. There’s a confrontational stance on such new punk-metal numbers as “Sick” and the Avril-like kiss-off song “Ciao, Bella” where her forceful anger is palpable. But Bif also serves up gentler confessional numbers like “Crash and Burn” and “My Innocence.” There’s even a power ballad and some sunny reggae. All in all, a cathartic release from a true original.
