Artist: Prima Donna (www.primadonnamusic.com)
Title: Not Having Fun
Genre: Rock/Alternative, Pop

I don't believe that these three woman that call themselves Prima Donna are Not Having Fun. The music is too damned good! You cannot make good music like this unless you are having a good time, right? I have to tell you, I listened to this CD countless times I enjoyed it so much.

This authoritative trio made up of young women has their act together. Debbie Keman (lead and background vocals), Tina Ciere (rhythm guitars, background vocals) and Gina Cieri (lead and rhythm guitars, keyboards, background vocals) are accomplished musicians and vocalists and they prove that steadfastly throughout this entire album. You will hear a CD chock-full of great guitar licks with hooks galore filling in every track including sexy and attention grabbing vocals all backed by an out of sight rhythm section that is clicking on all its cylinders. This band is as tight as a pair of spandex jeans.

The lyrics have their moments in the sun too as they stab and bite at their intended victims. On "Like You" the singer asks Do I like you?-not enough, Do I love you?-not enough, Do I want you?-not enough, Do I need you?-how much? Well, you get the idea. The point made is quite clear that she does not need the person that is the subject of the song. This is music about self-reliance and independence; I am woman and hear me roar! Damned straight, and do not forget it.

The little girl on the front cover of this CD could easily turn her frown upside by listening to this music. Got a grimace going on that needs adjusting? Check this out, you will be dancing in the street in no time.
