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.
