On Alejandra Guzman's 2004 release, LIPSTICK, the gritty Mexican rocker teams up once again with producer Desmond Child. Much of Guzman's allure stems from her sensual voice and her openly sexual lyrics. The title track, a single that is sung both in Spanish and English, features a droning melody, a hard-hitting drum pattern, and the story of a sex-crazed woman. "Hoy Me Voy a Querer," another single, is a reinterpretation of Bif Naked's "I Love Myself Today." On this piece, Guzman's primal screams steal the thunder from the raucous, heavily distorted guitars. "Supersexitada" continues in a similar hard-rock vein. However, this tune also features a surprisingly subtle and stripped-down verse section. Guzman is a decadent rock & roll artist, offering up musical erotica at its best.
