Product Description

BBC Review

When Hole's raging, ragged debut album appeared in 1991, few would have predicted that new records would still be appearing under that name 19 years later. But then, Courtney Love has often turned being misunderstood and underestimated into an art form.

Of course, there will always be Love-loathers who dismiss her every success as solely dependent on her status as Kurt Cobain's widow. This ignores the fact that she has slowly and erratically built up a back catalogue which rivals Cobain's in depth, if not in impact. Nobody's Daughter, despite its lengthy and troubled gestation, is a rich and emotionally searing addition to that canon, effortlessly besting her haphazard solo album.

The imperious title-track opens and establishes the blueprint. The sound is still distinctly 90s (the strafing guitars suggesting that Love has been listening to The Afghan Whigs) but her vocals have a new, weathered stateliness. Love has always had a Plath-like obsession with her own mythology, but on Nobody's Daughter it is given full reign. She rages, "Don't tell me I have lost when clearly I've won," with the righteous, defiant fury of someone who didn't die or fade away as many predicted, and some seemed to desire.

The album's two emotional centrepieces are more introspective. On the tender, elegiac FM rock of Pacific Coast Highway she obliquely but unmistakeably reflects on the marriage which defined and nearly destroyed her, and its "miles and miles of regrets". On the brooding, slow-burning Letter to God she exposes herself even more brutally: lamenting over forlorn, sighing guitars that "I never wanted to be some kind of comic relief" and she's "turned into a freak". The gorgeous melody lifts it from self-absorption into something movingly beautiful.

But the most gratifying thing about Nobody's Daughter is that almost every song is strong. Skinny Little Bitch is a numbskull-riffed throwaway, but is flanked by songs as bruisingly lovely as Honey, as hook-heavy as Samantha, or as wistful and sad-eyed as For Once in Your Life, which sees Love channel Marianne Faithfull to gently riveting effect.

It's said that living well is the best revenge, but that has never seemed an entirely realistic option for Love. Instead she will have to settle for proving her armies of detractors wrong with records as lingering, intelligent and unexpected as this. --Jaime Gill

5.0 out of 5 stars Grown up Hole 8 Dec 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Took me a while to buy this as the last Courtney Love come back album was disappointing, Perhaps I was not expecting much from this, so I was really pleasantly suprised at how good it is. As you can expect from Coutney Love, every emotion is raw and overstated, but that's what makes it so powerful. There is not a lot that she does not open up here and at times you can feel the pain. She has experimented with melody and some old pure grunge! I love it

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it already. AWESOME ALBUM 9 Aug 2012
By Joseph
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has quickly become my favorite album. I totally missed this albums release as I wasn't yet a fan of either Courtney or Hole. It's got the grungy anger Courtney was famed for in the 90's but still sounds very mature. It's a reflect on the first half of her life with great hights and even greater lows of berevement and addiction. I shows a woman looking forword to her best years but that doesn't mean being dull.

At the time of the "Nobody's Daughter" release Courtney Love was 45, judging from the record, still damaged but still engaging, smart and charismatic. And six years after her solo record flopped, this was such a great surprise - I loved "Nobody's Daughter", which, despite the absence of any other member of her old group (the original Hole cast), is still credited to Hole (I wonder what legal battles Courtney had to win to be able to put the name "Hole" on the cover!).

Anyway, the record. It's raw magic, stripped bare soul and coarse (but oh so powerful) vocals. Yes, the old pictures we all saw before are painted all over again: romantic love gone bad, drugs and cigarettes, low self-esteem, soul-searching. It feels sad and desperate and trying. But then it also sounds like Courtney, who once was the vocal beast, is trying her best, and it is a respectable effort.

It's five stars from me, but I am somewhat biased. I agree that, due to the time it took the record to be released, it feels overproduced. I agree that some songs, which sound simple in the beginning, are, actually, the best on the album. I agree with the claims that, if Eric Erlandson was still part of the Hole team, he would work his magic on the music. I agree that 'Pacific Coast Highway" tries hard (and fails) to be the next "Malibu". But I still love this record, "pure as first love".

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Little Secret 26 Oct 2011
By Pilgrim
Format:Audio CD
I saw Hole on Jules and knew I had to buy an album. I read a review berating 'Nobody's Daughter' (written by whom?) and singing the praises of 'Live Through This', so I bought both.

The only thing I don't like about 'Nobody's Daughter' is the cover! It is a superb album and I rate every track. I have hardly played the earlier album with the different lineup.

'Pacific Highway' just makes me want to drive it in a Cadillac and 'I don't care what it takes my friend but I will never go hungry, go hungry again' is a protest song from oblivion.

I grew up listening to 'London Calling', the Clash and 'Art School', the Jam and I rate this raw and heartfelt album in the same category and quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody's Daughter 27 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have heard the tracks from this album and is little short of BRILLIANT. I read a review that some pompous idiot had written saying that the songs were "self-pitying" and "self-indulgent". I am willing to believe that he had reviewed Lady GaGa's album, or collection of dull commercial music; whichever description fits best - either way, I am pretty sure that Lady GaGa hasn't had her husband's suicide eclipse everything she ever does.

The songs on this album are well documented as having begun in rehab. They are not pleasant songs to listen to; in that they are like a knife in the stomach, their pain is all too real and easily recognised by anyone who has had life kick them square in teeth.

Courtney does NOT wallow in the pain. She uses it to take her to a philosophical flagstone. She also uses the anger that accompanies depression and self-destruction. The songs are inspirational, sung with such conviction and feeling. They are very real, they are very genuine.

Stand out tracks for me are Letter to God, Samantha and Never Go Hungry Again (which is very Bob Dylan in style and content). The album renounces all the poison and destruction that has permeated Courtney's life, she sticks two fingers up and says "I'm still breathing".

Who gives a damn if the HOLE line-up is now different, new blood was needed and no one cried and spat when Melissa went off to join The Smashing Pumpkins. Courtney is a band front woman, not a solo artist. Just enjoy the ride, you will ALWAYS be guaranteed entertainment.

Rock on Courtney, show these whippersnappers how it's done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the best album of 2010? 11 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
Well, confessions first. I am generally an indie rock / alternative kind of person. Best bands ever? Radiohead? REM? The Smiths? Joy Division? I expect you get the picture. I loved Nirvanna, althogh came to appreciate them more after they were no more. Why do people do that? Cobain was a poet and genius. So was Curtis.

But what is this? Courtney Love. Hole. I had ignored this until Love's appearance on Jools Holland's "later" about six weeks ago.

I don't like "Skinny Little Bitch" and one other track on this album (can you guess?) but the rest is littered with songs that rank somewhere between good and tremendous. "Honey" is one of the most beautiful lamenting rock songs ever written - listen to those two chord changes ("Hope that...") and be inspired. "Nobody's Daughter" and "Pacific Highway" ("miles and miles of regret") are stand out. "Samantha" is iconic, although may divide opinion. "Someone else's life" and "for once in your life" complete the best songs.

Thus far, this is the best of 2010.
