Biography

Over the years, the Pretenders became a vehicle for guitarist/vocalist Chrissie Hynde's songwriting, yet it was a full-fledged band when it was formed in the late '70s. With their initial records, the group crossed the bridge between punk/new wave and Top 40 pop more than any other band, recording a series of hard, spiky singles that were also melodic and immediately accessible.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Best album of 2008 there isn't a a single bad track on the country-tinged Break Up the Concrete. Chrissie Hynde is as in-your-face as ever but there's a glint of humor here that I don't remember. Also, the best song I heard all year is on this record: "Love's A Mystery." --Stephen King - Entertainment Weekly

Product Description

Think of this long awaited studio album as if it were the first Pretenders record: musical turf that's defined by attitude, lyrical and melodic mastery, and the unexpected...and Chrissie Hynde's voice as you've always known it. "Break Up The Concrete" is an authentic slice of rock Americana, ranging from blistering punk to the most delicate storytelling as told by the queen of rock royalty herself.
