Post Orgasmic Chill is the third studio album by British rock band Skunk Anansie, first released in 1999. Two album covers exist: the European version with the band lounging in an oceanside apartment, and the American version with the band standing on the Atlantic City boardwalk. It was a complete departure from their previous two albums, which had elements of punk rock and alternative rock by moving to a new harder sound with elements of hard rock and alternative metal.


The album title resembles the title of the 13th song, a Japanese bonus track called Post Orgasmic Sleep.


The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[3]
