Product Description

CD Description

Nobody's Daughter is the first album for more than a decade from the reformed Hole (since 1998’s three-time Celebrity Skin), led by Courtney Love along with 23-year-old British guitarist Micko Larkin (formerly of London indie rockers Larrikin Love), bassist Shawn Dailey (of Rock Kills Kid), and drummer Stuart Fisher (Jack Irons, formerly of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam, played drums on the album). Includes the single "Skinny Little Bitch".

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

Format: Audio CD
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".

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

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.

As a long-time Hole fan, I was so excited to get this. However, it turned out to be a big disappointment, much like her solo album back in 2004.
Only 3 tracks stand out for me - the title track, Skinny Little Bitch and Samantha. The rest just merges in to mush. As someone who, as a schoolgirl, would get home then spend hours playing along on my guitar to Pretty on the Inside, Live Through This and My Body The Hand Grenade, I had hoped this album would be a return to form, but alas it's not.
Thankfully, Courtney still has attitude and spunk (and dear God, do we need that in the music industry, what with all the leotard-wearing clones about these days). Long may she reign! Maybe the next album will be better.

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.

I was so excited to read that Hole would be releasing a new album, and the critics' enthusiastic predictions only added fuel to the fire of that excitement! I wasn't really disappointed, either. It's a great album, and I really enjoy listening to it. But it doesn't sound like Hole. It's totally fair to say that this is a natural musical evolution and happens to loads of bands - but Hole isn't really an evolving band anymore. It's basically Courtney with a completely new line-up.
One of the things about this album that separates it from its predecessors is the fact that it's sort of samey. Every song on Celebrity Skin is instantly recognizable in its opening bars, and consequently totally memorable. The same goes for Live Through This (incidentally, my personal fave) and Pretty On The Inside. With Nobody's Daughter, Courtney still retains the amazing vocal rawness and charisma of previous albums, but the melodic simplicity that made them such a distinctive and powerful band seems to have been replaced with a British-inspired, kind of Indie feel, which sort of makes them sound like most guitar bands around at the moment. Courtney's voice reminds you that it's Hole (or, at least, this new incarnation of Hole) and the songs ARE good, but in places the lyrics feel kind of contrived, like she's trying to regurgitate the sort of lyrics she was writing before. It's still very well-written in general.
Anyway, I really like the album and I do listen to it, but I'd never rate it as highly as the previous albums.
