5.0 out of 5 stars a glorious, pop, rock transformation, 12 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Celebrity Skin (Audio CD)
Celebrity Skin was never going to be one of those easy releases. Courtney Love was never one of the most popular female icons of the 90's. Indeed releasing music in the rock genre was always asking for trouble, with half of her fanbase being Nirvanan fans that had turned against her. However, even in the light of the Kurt and Courtney film, Celebrity Skin the single triumphantly made its debut, suggesting an exciting offer of what the album was to be like. But, celebrity Skin the album is nothing like the simple, rocky, venemous single. It is smooth, poptastic and emotional. Songs like Awful, Malibu and Heaven tonight are gorgeously tinged with gold. Northern Star and Petals are emotion ripped to the barest essentials and perhaps give an insight into the true Courtney - something I think she likes to hide with all her recent glamour. It seems that the same themes are running through. Such as on Boys on the radio and playing your song which is very anti-establishment. These show similarities with previous album's Live through this and Pretty on the inside. Many say Hole have sold out, but all that has happened is that they have modernised. With a gloriously produced sound that shows off the beautiful lyrics, hole continue to kick ass!
