Editors’ Notes

From its unambiguous title to its explicit cover photo to the naughty female moaning that opens its first track, Going to Hell has all the subtlety of a Harley roaring down Sunset Boulevard: this is lighter-waving heavy rock in the spirit of Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction and Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet. Actress-turned-singer Taylor Momsen reprises her role as the band's bad-to-the-bone frontwoman. On The Pretty Reckless' sophomore album, she snarls her way through cycles of glorious sinning and fingers-crossed repenting. Sonically, the album covers a lot of ground. The swaggering guitars of "Absolution" sound like something out of modern country's playbook; "House on a Hill" looks to Nickelback with its soaring balladry; "Heaven Knows" is a call-and-response rocker that evokes Joan Jett; "Waiting for a Friend" is a plaintive acoustic tune that's almost indie rock. Yet it's the barnburners that work best, especially "Why'd You Bring a Shotgun to the Party." That's a splenetic rager that's sure to get the cops called if you play it at your next keg stand, which is surely the point. 

Customer Reviews

Who cares about your religion?!

Come on man. religion and music are two very different things. let’s keep them separate and recognize an amazing rock album. I’ve been listening to the previews non-stop in anticipation. This sounds incredible. Taylor’s best work to date. She’s not singing about hell and the devil on every track. So if that’s not your thing, skip those songs (even though you’re missing out). 5 stars for an epic rock album. keep ‘em coming. This band is revolutionizing rock.

Guaranteed Insane

Been a huge fan since the first record. Undeniable talent considering the front woman's age. Been to several shows and the song previews (especially Follow Me Down, Going To Hell, and Sweet Things) sound exactly as the band sounds live. Sweet Things may actually be even better live, but I'll wait for the record's release to judge. If you believe in Rock and Roll and await its new dawn, or if you love My Morning Jacket, Zeppelin and all the bands that are simply unique, at least give the title track a try. Or listen to 'Cold Blooded' off their Hit Me Like A Man EP.
SO pumped for March 18.

Slay me Taylor

Every song they create is amazing. Can't wait to have this album!


Formed: 2009 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Like her co-star Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen rose to fame as an actress on the TV series Gossip Girl before launching a separate music career. She formed the Reckless in 2009, later changing the band’s name to the Pretty Reckless to avoid trademark problems. With Momsen on vocals, John Secolo on guitar, Matt Chiarelli on bass, and Nick Carbone on drums, the group began finding a balance between hard rock and post-grunge, taking cues from female-fronted bands like Hole and the Runaways along the...
