"Just take the seminal “Wrapped in Plastic”, an on the surface tacky pop song if there ever was, but then you stumble over the line “don’t you want to fuck the homecoming queen” and when you listen closer the song turns out to be a quite direct recap of a young girl being raped, murdered and then left out somewhere wrapped in plastic. And yes, it turns out to be a retell of the best tv-series there ever was, “Twin Peaks”. But it is also a mind virus ready to creep into the bedrooms of teenage girls all over the western world unsuspected by their mothers and fathers. It is also one of two songs, where keyboarder Jessi Nakles takes over lead vocals for the whole song in the best Kim Wilde or Blondie style." - Review from Austian site: www.monochrom.at/cracked/reviews/Rev%20thenewloud2.htm


Wrapped In Plastic:
Where do you go when home is just another thing to hide from? Places where the truth is safe from everyone. Don't get caught as you run off, the devil's in disguise. Six years since life turned to this - I never realized. Planning, planning where to go when home becomes a hell. The truth, the truth will cut you up until you're out of mettle. Wrapped in plastic everything moves like a dream. Wrapped in plastic - I can't feel anything. Cover it up with pills and dust, no memory nothing happens. My life's an American anecdote perfected to perfection. Behind a smile lies your fear that the devil truly loves you. Close your eyes. Now concentrate on who you see above you. The thoughts, the thoughts come creeping 'cross and nestle into dreams. My life, my life is all but lost and nothing's as it seems. Pills and dust and everything that lies in between, don't you, don't you want to fuck the homecoming queen?
