Fight Like a Girl is a different kind of record than I was anticipating. Opheliac succeeded because of Emilie’s famous electric violin and patented screaming well outside of her vocal range. These trademarks are nowhere to be found on this album, replaced with much lighter fare. Industrial takes a backseat to theatrical. This one is less a rock album than a soundtrack to a musical. The problem is that musical only exists in Emilie’s head.
