5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best!
The Throwing Muses were one of the most promising rock bands to emerge in the mid 80’s. They produced some of the most outstanding and original music not only of the 80’s but, in my opinion, in the history of rock. With roots in the folk-punk of the Raincoats and Slits, they created a cacophonous sound of women possessed by goddesses, in songs with remarkable...

3.0 out of 5 stars Muses return to power trio sound!
Though all Muses and Kristin Hersh fans will buy this anyway, it's definitely worth a listen even if you're new to this iconic band. It's a return to their heavier rockier sound, with powerful, brilliant drumming from David Narcizo and Kristin fabulous on guitar and vocally as magnificent as ever. The sound came off better live, though with repeated listening this album...

Tanya Donnelly joins Hersh again for a wonderful album - the Muses always seem timeless to me, but Donnelly adds that certain something, a little more sweetness to the mix again, while regaining the punchy quirkiness of TM that they've always had.

This review is from: Throwing Muses (Audio CD)
I was so excited when the TM's got back together to record this. But... the wait wasn't worth it. The recording is yet again over mixed\produced to allow Kristen to over dominate the sound of the music. With a drummer and bass guitarist that are so good at their job why tone down the sound so much that they become background noise.
I know this album will sound brilliant live, but sadly it sounds badly engineered on this CD, almost as much as the 'Live' albums which need to be turned up way more than any other CD I own to get the same sound level.
