    I think the best way to explain this album is by saying its awesome, but I'll go into a bit more detail than that. Screaming Females dont hide behind anything on Ugly, their fifth full-length. The album focuses in on Marissa Paternosters vocals and guitar, King Mike on bass and Jarrett Dougherty on drums, and stays with those core elements from start to finish. That may not sound like a recipe for success-- very few bands could keep it interesting with so little instrumental variation-- but Screaming Females make it seem effortless. The trio plays together with a kind of expert communication that could only come from years upon years of incessant touring, and somehow communicate this urgency through the recording process as well. Ugly is an album that doesnt have a single hole in it; you keep waiting for the filler to come, but each song is there with ass-kicking purpose.
