Format: Audio CD
Lunachicks the all-woman punk rock band from New York City formed in 1987 sure knew how to act the archetypical 'punk' band that met most peoples preconceptions of the extreme wing of the punk movement. They were punk chicks in every shape and form, from their hyper-edgy music to their sassy, aggressive, 'in-yer-face attitudes, and to the way that they dressed, everything they were and everything they represented is against what the mainstream consider 'normal'. I say 'were' because they ceased performing in 2000 but made no announcement of disbandment so perhaps, if we are lucky, some time in the future we may see a return on stage of this ground breaking 'shock' band albeit a bit wrinkly, and perhaps less outrageous in attire and stroppiness but still snarling and gesticulating at their audiences, as much as middle-age will allow.

The album 'Pretty Ugly' is, as their act always was, a mixture of Melodic punk ("The Day Squid's Gerbil Died", "Wing Chun", "Mr Lady", "The Baby", "Missed It"), fast and furious 'Riot Grrrl' punk ("Yeah", "Throw It Away", "Dear Dolli", "Spark", "Gone Kissin'", "*@#%!**",) and two tracks close to Glam-Punk ("Whats Left", "MMM Donuts".) Best of album in my view goes to "Don't Want You", a good pop-rock number with mesmeric riffs.

Almost a 5 star album but the 'Riot-Grrrl numbers, whilst quiet good are nothing exceptional, unlike the more melodic tracks which are really excellent.

well, what can i say. nobody seems to know them but i just don't know why! i bought this album-the first time i saw one in a shop ever- having heard brickface and stucco and ay chihuahua in a gokart compilation. i listened to the album once through and sulked because it wasn't the same as id expected but then i tried again and i loved it. get past the scratchy ameteur style and you see some truly memorable melodies, some at the height of novelty that punk so likes to produce "the day squid's gerbil died" and "dear dotti" ahve great melodies and are somehow about nothing at all, and there are anthems to some wonderful things such as sporks, but then they get serious and pull out the highly original, comtemplative "what's left" and " i don't want you" is quite possibly the best. the catchyness and energy is 100s of times better then "punk" like blink 182, rawer and more abrasive. buy it and let it ro on you. that is if you find it!!!!

Not the best Lunachicks album ever, but still recommended. I always liked the band because they were pretty loud and angry, but also a lot of fun. The guitars are especially great, and Theo Kogan's voice still sounds fantastic, and at times bloody hilarious.
Best songs go to 'Yeah', 'Dear Dotti' and 'What's Left'. If you like bands like Babes In Toyland and Hole from their 'Pretty on the Inside' days, then chances are you may not like this, because it's not that angry. But it is very good. Like I said, not the best, as their best albums for me were 'Babysitters On Acid' and 'Luxury Problem', but this is still definitely worth it, so give in to the Chicks and show em you love em.

This album is by far one of the best I have heared In a long time.
Lunachicks are amazing and I'm suprised not many people know of them.
That's all I really have to say.

No Way! 10 Nov. 1999
By T. Lafreniere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The other review doesn't give this cd any justice! On this one, the gals were inspired by Horton Heat and you can hear that in the music. This is a really fun cd. No matter what the song is, Theo gets the vocals right on. Unlike some screaming, eardrum-piercing bands, Lunachicks are musically right on. I love them!

Got any Advil, Got any Chocolate....?!! 7 July 2003
By Pamela Scarangello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I possess all 5 of the Lunachicks' studio CDs and I think this one tops them all. To me, "Pretty Ugly" marks the group reaching their absolute creative peak. Every female should have this album; the Lunachicks, in general, are one of the few hard rock groups that DO NOT sound like Avril Lavigne, Liz Phair or Lillix. They are fun, sometimes crude, and can't be taken seriously. I really don't have favorite songs on here, but if I was asked to pick any, I would probably choose "The Day Squid's Gerbal Died," "Dear Dolli" and the instumental "MMM...Donuts." With the group's hilarious lyrics, hyperactive guitar rock and in-your-face views on women's issues, "Pretty Ugly" is an audio powder keg. In addition, not alot of their songs involve being sexually attractive to men; instead their lyrics (on this album, anyway) are about watching T.V., writing to advice columns, the indulgences of snack food, transexuals, and every girl's favorite...PMS. Certainly, I can't think of any other collection of songs featuring a comatose old man dressed in a tutu, a dog chasing a gerbal, a kung fu tomboy OR a 35-year-old man-child crying in his own diaper! Get this album while you still can; it's a rock and roll gem!
Beware: not to be bought by shallow MTV watchers or members of the elderly.
;D

after years of listening to all the lunachicks albums, i have concluded that this is the best one. even though my three favorite lunachicks songs do not grace it, this entire album makes me want to dance and/or sing. it is the cleanest, smoothest, most consistent lunachicks album. i beleive i love every song equally. genius.

I learned about the Lunachicks while tuning into to L7 on Myspace. The first album I came across was Luxury Problem. I did'nt care for it as a full package, but, I liked it enough to surf through their catalogue until I found other stuff I liked. I tuned into every album of theirs, and this one is as Pop as it gets for them. The style of this album definitely has more commercial appeal verses the others. They also perform at a slower tempo on a lot of the songs, and these tend to be the higglights of the album, in my opinion. The Audio-effects on it also gives it late 80's, early 90's appeal in some songs. The percussion, and some of the layered echoing give it a 1980's arena sound.

My instant favorites would be Mr. Lady + Don't want You + The Day Squid's gerbal died + Wing chun. These four songs have a more Mainstream/pop sound to the point of something you'd hear from the Go-go's, or even the Bangle's. I never understood why so many bands in the 90's were opposed to incorporating poppier elements to their sound, why? It sounds so much better this way. It's more refined, and developed! Is it not a coincidence that all the bands in the later part of the 90's had better albums as a whole in comparison to their earlier work? Not to say that the grungier sound wasn't hot, but, adding those pop elements gives it that extra crunch! Welp, this is that album!

Theo Koegan (Leadsinger) actually sounds good singing commercial-nainstream stuff. The most predictable, and pop of everything on the tracklist is Don't Want You, and Mr. Lady could/would be considered bubblegum. I would've really liked to hear a full length album in the likes of these two, from beginning to end. This is as close as it gets, and I'm into it! Just would've liked to hear a complete album of more standard pop-rock albums at some point.

This was the first album I heard by the Lunachicks. I've been listening to it (and all their other albums) ever since. It's hard to say which song I like best because I like them all. Theo does some great vocal work here. I'd love to see them get back on the road so we can watch Theo go beserk on stage again. A fantastic live band but obviously a great studio band as well. They gave it their all while they were together and I feel lucky to be able to listen to their great music now. It's been 14 years now since their last album. It would be so great for them to get back together for another album and tour but we are not worthy. Hail, the mighty Lunachicks. I will love you forever.
