Yesterday marked the first release from 'Hole' in 12 years. I never stopped liking them, nor stopped being interested in Courtney Love. I think once you are into something so much, even if you are 15, it doesn't just go away. So I can't help but be excited about this or the fact that I get to see them in a couple months.
I will say, 'Live Through This' is one of my all time favorite albums from start to finish. That being said, Nobody's Daughter is nothing like that album and it is certainly nothing like 'Pretty on the Inside', but I get the feeling that she doesn't want to be that anymore. I think its kind of like 'Celebrity Skin' but more mature with better lyrics. I listened to it several times all the way through and I can say that I really like the first half while the second half is kind of lacking for me. Stand out favorites for me are the title track, 'Skinny Little Bitch', 'Pacific Coast Highway', and 'Samantha'. Courtney's voice sounds great and even a bit reminiscent of Marianne Faithful at times.
Courtney and 'Hole' were on Letterman last night. I thought she looked amazing (way better than I have seen in recent photos). She claims to be clean and sober and I think I believe it. She looks healthy and happy and seems semi-normal. Her little tattoos are super cute, too. If you missed it, here is a portion of the interview and don't forget, they will be on Jimmy Kimmel April 29th!
