Sex & Misery (1996)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Voice of the Beehive; Genre: Rock

The Belland sisters' great, underrated prior efforts, veritable hives of feisty Day-Glo feminism, suggested Bananarama with brains. Third time out on Sex & Misery, they've jettisoned the band, matured, and moved toward the soppier side of Madonna/Patrick Leonard-style balladry, earnestly reflecting on romantic loss and death with scant idiosyncratic wit. O Voice of the Beehive, where is thy sting?
