Skin starts off telling us in her fantastic, searing rock-chick snarl that she'd rather be alone in her room than spend her time with us.
Shame really, as Alone In My Room kick-starts her second solo album with a heavy, pop-punk barrage of guitar hooks and bile-fuelled chorus.
With (not much) less of the out-and-out guitar rage of former band Skunk Anansie, Skin has a bit more room to work what can be a beautifully tender voice over liquid, poppy melodies, only rarely dropping her trademark driving, poppy choruses.
Just Let The Sun, Skin's first single in nearly three years, doesn't disappoint.
Sure, it ain't groundbreaking, but it is consistently good. 3/5
