Withdrawal Method

Withdrawal Method, originally titled Vagina Dentata, is the second and final studio album by American alternative rock band Die Monster Die, released in 1994 by Roadrunner Records. The album was recorded during October 1993 at RPM Studios in New York City with producer Steven Haigler, except for the track "Slumber" which was engineered by Ray Martin at Shelter Island.

AllMusic     [1]

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, critic Eduardo Rivadavia wrote of the album, "no matter how hard it tries to be eclectic, Withdrawal Method never once breaks into truly uncharted territory, and if not for the haunting innocence of Alice Cohen's girlish croons, there'd be nothing memorable about the album."[1]
