Santigold – ‘Big Mouth’

Our rating:

Bracing at first, but greatness ensues

Perhaps mindful of how much of a slouch she was in delivering, Santi’s thrown at her comeback not only the kitchen sink, but also vintage Missy Elliott, Nicola Roberts’ ‘Beat Of My Drum’, ‘Ray Of Light’-era Madonna, African kuduro fusion and, most startlingly of all, the theme from [i]The X Files[/i]. It’s pretty bracing at first, but greatness ensues.
