'...the bawdy one-two punch of 'She Calls Me Daddy' and 'Cock' tearing it up as openers, followed by the truckin' of 'Showgirl Hips' and 'Undertow' before closing with a f***ing brilliant rendition of Motörhead's 'Ace of Spades' (where yours truly believes ole Lemmy's given a run for his money). In any case, this disc is a good way to get your holiday jollies.' -Abel Folgar, NEW TIMES, 12/21/2006 '...four cutthroat Kitten originals and an awe-inspiring cover of Motorhead's Ace of Spades in which singer Paige Alison Harvey challenges Lemmy Kilminster as that dirty-metal classic's voice of record.' -Sean Piccoli, Sun-Sentinel 12/8/2006 On The Livid Kitten's fifth release, 'The Diamond-Cutter Sessions', singer Paige Harvey slips behind the wheel, puts the pedal to the metal, and never takes her eyes off the road. Francis Cast's guitar is on fire throughout, driven hard by the propulsive rhythm section, showcasing the exuberance and swagger of a band rocking on all cylinders. Sexually charged and darkly emotional, with sardonic humor and full-on rock and roll power, The Kittens lay down a heavy sound, at once familiar and unique.
