Michelle Malone's major label debut includes crunchy rockers, folkie acoustic numbers, and even some countrified funk. Like many female rockers, the Atlanta-based singer often gets compared to Janis Joplin, which is somewhat appropriate; however, when she's rocking, Malone sounds like a female Ian Astbury of the Cult. Dan Baird and Amy Ray make guest appearances on Relentless, which was produced by Lenny Kaye. Overall, it's not a bad set.
