Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Now here’s a girl after my own heart. When I read that RPM was “…a girl who doesn’t give a f*ck about saying what she feels…” (Tommy Lee) I knew I’d like her. I also love that her liner notes start out by saying, “I want to un-thank all the people who told me to quit.”

These songs are politically and socially charged, intelligent, meaningful, thought provoking and sexy.

RPM has a fondness for cursing especially the “effenheimer”. She knows how to get her point across.

Not only are her lyrics great, but the songs sound cool as well. The driving rhythms, the wild guitar and the gusty vocals make this true kick-ass music.
