Surely everyone must remember Skye Sweetnam, everyone's favourite rebellious li'l scamp, who roused a generation of feisty preteens totally soooo bored of reading that old fart Billy Shakespeare (yuck!). It seems the fates have been kind, yanking her career out of the one-hit-wonder junk heap and pairing the punktastic pop princess with production team the Matrix and (yikes!) Rancid's Tim Armstrong, who will apparently work with anyone these days. Though Sweetnam's former self was pure sugar pop, she's attempting to get a little edgier with electro-based jams like Boyhunter (oh Skye -- you're soooo boycrazy!) and the ska-meets-surf rocker (Let's Get Movin') Into Action, featuring Armstrong. Only problem is, Sound Soldier is still really freaking obnoxious and bratty-sounding, not to mention unabashedly vapid, self-important and tiresome. And contrived. And just not very good. Like, at all.
