A Five Star Chrissie Hynde CD,
This review is from: Packed (Audio CD)
"Criminal", "Let's Make A Pact", "A Real Sense Of Purpose" and "Hold A Candle To This" combine to make this overlooked CD a bona fide gem. This truly does sound like a solo Chrissie Hynde album and fortunately her emotive, tender and forceful vocals suffice and carry the day. The CD is relatively mellow and it's ear candy for me. Chrissie Hynde is one of the greatest rock and roll vocalists ever. Incidentally, "Hold A Candle To This" is the one Pretenders'song that explicitly addresses Chrissie Hynde's longstanding animal rights and humane vegetarianism worldview. It's a riveting tune with great lyrics. "Criminal" is a poignant relationship song that many of us can relate to.

Good review, Brien.
However, I'm not sure what the comment "This truly does sound like a solo Chrissie Hynde album" means! The Pretenders was always Hynde's project anyway. For example - she is the only constant member of all the Pretenders albums and concerts.

Correct ! Chrissie Hynde is essentially the Pretenders ! She dominates and she resonates.
