Transcend, Pope''s latest weapon, is explosive, electronica that swaggers with rhythmic confidence while Pope''s husky vocals both dare and deliver with the swelling abandon for which she''s known. "World Of One" is dark and smoky, a visceral and sexy send off. "I won''t play nice and make it easy/ In your world of one," Pope promises. In "Dream6" she blends the lure of desire with relentless, restless guitar riffs. "Americana" is a delicately hypnotic tour of landscapes and politics. "We ventured into some kind of unholy covenant/ With the government/ The rat pack, the leader, the freak, the conformist/ The screamer, Hey! That''s me! Let''s go down to Washington/ The mountains, the citadels, the place of detention/ The literal, the visceral, all our good intentions/ Get out of the car, run screaming." XTRA Magazine

Praise for All Touch
"This hot crossover release is pure dancefloor magic" -Randy Chow
Wax of the Week, Eye Magazine
Praise for Anti Diva:
"Anti Diva is stacked with hundreds of similar caustic toss offs, thrown about with the kind of casual abandon you''d expect from a self-confessed and inveterate name-dropper...It''s the kind of book you take in a single gulp, for fear of losing step with its breathless, pulp-noir pace..." -Greg Quill, Toronto Star
"Pope''s humour and sexual bravado have translated well onto paper. Anti Diva is a subtle but scathing attack of those who have drifted into complacency both on a cultural and personal level. It is both a challenge and an invitation, especially to women and cultural producers, to keep kicking at the pedestals." -Donna Lypchuck, National Post
"Anti Diva is deeply enjoyable, nasty without apology, and unexpectedly deft...Pope is saucy and willing to say just about anything... ''Unrepentant'' is the word that best applies...Refreshingly, Pope does not feel the need to apologize in any way for this behaviour, or to seek forgiveness. There is no closure, no reckoning, no teary epiphanies on mountaintops or Costa Rican yoga retreats." -Elizabeth Renzetti, Globe and Mail
Carole Pope has produced what is probably the raunchiest, trashiest, funniest autobiography ever penned by a Canadian celebrity." -Paul Gessell, The Edmonton JournalThe Vancouver SunOttawa Citizen The Telegram (St. John''s)
