Kissproof World

Jane Wiedlin's fourth solo album, Kissproof World, came out in 2000 and it is a solo tour de force from an entrepreneur, actress and rock goddess hellbent on smashing her cutie-pie image. Jane has aged fabulously into the grande dame of New Wave art chicks and she still has endless get-up-and-go-go of her own. The album is full of guitar-heavy power pop, pitting middle-age malaise ("Die Now! Pay Later!," "The Good Wife") against middle-age lust ("Drain," "Muse"). Fortunately, lust wins; And if you were lucky enough to purchase the cd there was an almost shockingly risque‚ CD booklet (can anyone say nipple), which suggests that Jane had sex on the brain, and you can hear it in the music. I had to order this directly from her site when it came out as you couldn't get it anywhere else. I noticed that Amazon has 1 copy in stock for $40.00 but I couldn't tell you if it has the fabulous cd booklet intact as it was when it first came out. An album that I would gladly shell out 40 bucks for. Jane is fantastic and wish like hell she would put out a new solo album.
