It was great to see Vixen return with a new CD. Janet Garder (vocals) and Roxy Petrucci (drums) are the only original members to return. Definitely check this disc out! Unfortunately, since the release of this CD the band has called it quits for good from what I'm told.

From: Neuf Date: July 28, 2001 at 14:24
Had to make a re-post in case there are any Vixen fans out there...Vixen is back together, believe it or not. Roxy (drums), Janet (vocals) and Jan (guitar) are out on tour with Vince Neil. Share, who now has her own band, declined to be a part of the reunion. It's great to see them back!

From: Don Date: February 23, 2002 at 13:08
Heard they unraveled again while on tour with Vince...perhaps the last we're going to hear from this great band. Janet is one of the greatest female vocalists in hard rock, and one of the hottest, too.

From: P.C. Date: March 9, 2002 at 12:45
I love VIXEN , but this is no Vixen . This is just ordinery grunge band . If I could turn back time .

From: chips Date: March 31, 2002 at 20:32
not too piss anyone off but this disc is horrible, does not even compare to the other two

From: Tony Date: April 10, 2002 at 0:41
A+ for effort but otherwise this cd reeks of just trying too hard. If you're that willing to jump to the latest trend how can anybody expect that the music you started with was played with any conviction? If you want to check out Vixen go with 'Rev It Up', it's a classic.

From: Zenari Date: September 29, 2002 at 13:58
Definitely, this CD isn't 'hard rock' nor 'AOR'. I just can't belive how a band that recorded 'Vixen' and 'Rev It Up' could do such a bore like 'Tangerine'!

From: Mighty 80's Date: December 27, 2002 at 23:00
Forget about this your money.and if you're thinking of downloading it from kazaa or your time.why should you waste your time listening to this grunge shit?

From: Jason Date: April 22, 2003 at 11:35
I think they tryed to stay with the times to get more air play and publicity. I was shocked. I think for the first 5 minutes of listening, I sat there in shock asking myself...What Happened To Them? I have heard worse but it was just a completely different direction for them to go in. Rumor has it that Janet is working on a solo record, Jan has a new band called Population 101, Share is still in Bubble with 2 ex-members of Faster Pussycat and Roxy is married and I think has a child on the way.

From: Rycheage Date: June 23, 2003 at 19:07
The band have thrown off their anthem and multi layered good girl songs approach for a more 90's hard and raw feel. They haven't totally sold out to the alternative crowd, but this is certainly not going to appeal to the light and fluffy crowd. This is a tough and gritty record that sounds loud and sounds raw. Fortunately the songs are still great. They may have taken a new path, but they still remember how to write a good tune.

But are they still hot?

From: Kristian Date: June 23, 2003 at 19:25
From what you see in the booklet, yeah they're still pretty hot. And by the way, this cd really rocks.

From: RustyModel Date: September 5, 2003 at 0:22
This is no Vixen cd.It's only for sell...

From: CC Date: November 3, 2003 at 10:59
Yes its not classic rock but its no sell out. Some fantastic tunes & still more melodic than 990f the grunge bands that everyone thinks they are copying. Yes the guitars are crunchier but its hardly the dirge you`d expect from the likes of Nirvana or Pearl Jam........anyway its hardly band wagon jumping seeing as this album came out in 98,long after grunge died!

From: MadTurk Date: July 28, 2004 at 14:49
No, this is not the Vixen we all know but then again, they don't claim to be !! I love the 'real' Vixen better, but what's wrong with doing something different ? People do experiment, you know ! Also, knowing the story behind the album makes me appreciate it even more. I love the album even tho Jan's not on it ( I think Gina is also a phenomenal guitar player ). If you like powerful vocals along with aggressive rhythms and dynamic guitars, chances are you'll love this album

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 7:52
Okay, so they sold out a bit, but this is not a bad album! It's actually good to see the ladies writing the majority of what they record and in that case it's more of a band effort. I like the songs and don't think it's anywhere near as bad as what Dokken and Warrant got up to in 1997. Good solid, and modern, hard rock. I probably prefer the debut but this sounds more 'real' than that one.

From: Carmine Rose Date: October 10, 2004 at 9:17
WTF is this? This can't be Vixen!

From: Carmine Rose Date: October 10, 2004 at 9:19
Oh yeah, one more thing. If you go to, you'll see that the first two albums (the TRUE Vixen albums) are being re-issued, and Vixen is now recording a new album! Let's hope it's better than this chunk of crap!

From: Brad Date: October 15, 2004 at 14:24
If it wasn't for Janet on lead Vocals I would have never bought it, not as good as their 1st to cd's!!!!

From: James Date: November 13, 2004 at 15:37
The new Vixen won't be the Vixen we love either. Here is the Linu-up their site list. Jan Kuehnemund (guitar) and Lynn Louise Lowrey (bass), with the high-energy rhythm of Kat Kraft (drums), and the passionate voice of Jenna Sanz-Agero (vocals)

From: jakki steal Date: April 17, 2005 at 3:00
tangerine is a killer cd. do yourself a favor and pick it up. groundbreaking tracks such as "bleed" "barely breathin" "cant control myself" and "shut up" will rock you like a suicide!

From: CHESSBOARDER Date: October 30, 2005 at 8:49
This Album is a Masterpiece of Shit! 1/10

From: CC Date: November 23, 2006 at 19:22
I still dont see how people think this is grunge! This was just a more modern sounding version of rock than the likes of Rev it up, which to my mind, is totally understandable as its not 1986 anymore. If you really wanna hear a band kill the legacy of Vixen, listen to the new album. Jan may own the rights to the name Vixen (which is why this CD was withdrawn), but nobody will ever replace the voice of Vixen that Janet was.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 20, 2007 at 17:54
Grunge-orientated album and without the spark of the firt album,shamely.I know time changes everything and living from the past is so boring sometimes but when i remenber the time when i saw the band in England as a support act for the Scorpions during the "Savage Amusment" tour back in the 80's...completely awesome!.Now with this album things have changed(4 good or bad)but i do prefer the aorish sound of their debut than the grungy sound of this one.6/10

From: z4roxx Date: September 29, 2007 at 11:25
Ahaha what is this???Ahaha if the band is Nirvana or Pearl Jam this could be a good shit for those music's incredibleld style is dead and buried....0/10!!!!!!!

From: crashdiet1313 Date: June 11, 2009 at 22:48
I seem to be in the minority as far as this one goes... hehe... this might actually be my favorite Vixen album. I don't mind the modern influence. "Can't Control Myself" and "Machine" are damn near perfect... If you're a Vixen fan, give this a chance.
