iTunes Editors’ Notes

While you could say Courtney Love is Hole, since she is the “group”’s one constant, it is inaccurate since the sound is highly dependent on her songs’ co-writers. This doesn’t mean that the final product isn’t as fascinating as Love’s own tabloid life; it just means that there is an obvious musical variety that comes from other sources. And it’s still Love’s tortured grunge croak snarling over the tunes. Only she could chill your heart with the nasty sweep of the title track, the intense drive of the garage-to arena rock of “Skinny Little Bitch,” and the rough and raw demo, intensity turned full-on, hard-rock attack of the Love-Billy Corgan-Linda Perry co-write “How Dirty Girls Get Clean.” “Honey,” “Pacific Coast Highway” and the raw bonus track “Never Go Hungry” aim towards mid-tempo. “Someone Else’s Bed,”  “For Once In Your Life” and “Letter to God” add up to be retrospective compositions where Love sounds more like a singer-songwriter trying to find her way home. She’s been a tortured, confused soul for years and this album shows those scars brilliantly.

Customer Reviews

Love Her Or Hate Her...

This album, simply put, is intense. A fine come-back after a somewhat longish absence from the World of Rock (where she belongs, btw ... and not the overly, and oftentimes, ugly revealing glare of the Red Carpet World).

Listen without prejudice

Courtney's Persona and Tabloid celebrity status will likely keep people from giving this record a fair shake. But if one can check their baggage, Nobody's Daughter is a riveting and enthralling ride. The title track is an airy stunner and "Someone Else's Bed" is a successful exercise in Rock Classicism. Even the lesser moments are worthy of repeat listens- "Letter to God" reveals a nice Pink Floyd vibe while "Honey" eschews on point vocals for raw emotion. If one is looking for old school Hole , look no further than "How Dirty Girls Get Clean." Courtney won't have an easy time getting people to "listen without prejudice" but those that do, win. If she and new guitarist Micko Larkin keep writing songs like "Nobody's Daughter" the next record could be the one that changes things for her and the legacy of Hole.

What the world needs now is Courtney Love

Thank you Micko and Courtney! Thank you bringing back Hole; this album comes full
circle. It's raw like Pretty on the Inside - it's got the raw empathy of LTT and
it's got the great California sound like Celebrity Skin!!

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '10s

Throughout Hole's career, vocalist/guitarist Courtney Love's notorious public image has overshadowed her band's music. In their original incarnation, Hole was one of the noisiest, most abrasive alternative bands performing in the early '90s. By the time of their second album, 1994's Live Through This, the band had smoothed out many of their rougher edges, also adding more melodies and hooks to their songwriting. Through both versions of Hole, Love's combative, assaultive persona permeated the group's...
