Biography

One night several years ago, Taylor Momsen’s father took his daughter to a White Stripes show. “Before that, the only concert I’d been to was Britney Spears,” says the singer, songwriter, and guitarist. “But once I saw Jack White onstage, that was it. I grew up as a dancer and I thought you had to dance to be a girl in the music industry. Then I saw the White ... Read more in Amazon's The Pretty Reckless Store

Editorial Reviews

Hell remains a source of inspiration for all kinds of art. It s impossible to even catalog how many books, movies, plays, and records have been written on the subject. However, the world s fascination with the big ole inferno never dwindles or dissipates.

On their second full-length album, Going to Hell, The Pretty Reckless flirt with those themes, most notably on the raucous and roaring title track. Over a twisting and turning riff and bombastic rhythm, front woman Taylor Momsen confidently announces, I m going to Hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Gossip Girl. Taylor was born to rock March 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At long last, the new TPR album drops, on the night of a full moon. One can only hope they do not make us wait another three years for the next one. How can I best sum up this band? (For people who don't like long reviews; I understand, you have stuff to do.) Blues-metal magnificence. It's as if Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Janis Joplin all made sweet love and had a scarily awesome baby named The Pretty Reckless. If that is all you need to hear, go buy the album now and enjoy. Everyone else is invited to read on...

The album charges strong out of the gate with "Follow Me Down", a terrifically sleazy blues romp that opens up with porn star Jenna Haze making... a little music of her very own. You crank up the volume to hear her moans and sighs, and then BLAM, the guitar riff slams you in the face (a nice trick, I must say). It's the standout track for me on this record; it is the best rock song I have heard in maybe... 20 years? No joke, folks. Razor and Tie Records: you are FOOLS if you don't release this as a radio single. It will CRUSH the industry.

Second favorite song: "Why'd You Bring a Shotgun to the Party?" Pure swagger, wisdom, and rage. "Sweet Things" is a close shave for third; she lets loose with some brutal howling near the end. A sign of heavier metal things to come? Perhaps. But slower, prettier songs like "House on a Hill" could easily be crossover hits on Top 40 stations, too. "Waiting for a Friend", a welcome dose of light 'n sweet, will make you wish you were that friend for whom she's waiting.

One might be tempted, given the tender age of the frontwoman (she was only 15 or 16 when the band formed in '09), to dismissively label this band as pop-rock. They are not. This insanely gorgeous girl can SING, and write songs, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars In some 60 years of listening to rock, March 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Pretty Reckless is one of the very best hard rock groups I've heard. Tough, edgy, *musical* instrumental work, good to excellent writing, and superlative vocals. Indeed, it's hard to say enough good about Taylor Momsen's vocal abilities, so I won't try except to say that we may be seeing in her the emergence of an overall ability that will match even Ronstadt's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had tried to listen to earlier Pretty Reckless songs before, but they never grabbed my attention. After hearing Heaven Knows on the radio, I was very intrigued. It was simple, bluesy, Joan Jett like, but different. Previewed the other songs, made the choice to get the whole album, and I'm really glad I did. I really like these songs, they way they are constructed and the way they flow and sound. Most of the songs have very odd chord progressions, and the way she found a way to sing with them is really impressive. Some of the songs have almost a rock opera kind of feel, like Sweet Things for example. It's almost like a classical composition with different parts slung together, hard rocking at first, but then switches gear to this creepy light sound. The album is a great mix of hard rock and ballads for sure, with great lyrics and flow. The only negative I would say is that some of the song topics are a little too "metal cliche" to the point where it's on the verge of corny and feeling a little fake (going to hell, drugs, and so on). But the energy and the way these songs were written overpower any negatives. An excellent album that I'll be playing for awhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be surprised that you love it April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This girl has an amazing voice, and she can really rock. After finding out she was an actress from Gossip Girl, you're thinking it's just another actor trying to make money on the side, and you aren't really expecting to like it. Not true with this album. This band is truly an awesome, in your face, rock band. Glad to see some of the songs on this one are getting some air time with local channels. It's one of those cds where you don't just like a song or two. The whole cd is great. Not for those easily offended, but definitely worth listening too for everyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Throw-back Hedonistic Altrock Masterpiece March 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been thoroughly enjoying "Going To Hell" by the Taylor Momsen led The Pretty Reckless. This album is a refreshing throw-back hedonistic altrock masterpiece. Momsen has pipes that rival Lizzy Hale of Halestorm while featuring similar hard rock stylings. Ms. Momsen posed for the cover photo too--she's quite photogenic. One of the challenges this offering presents is picking a top track, but I'll go with "Absolution" with the title track close behind (the acoustic bonus version of the title track is another gem). This album is built to party and a no-brainer recommended buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out, uncomplicated hard rock blast July 19, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Coming across in many ways as a slightly dumbed down and more serious version of all those Scandinavian hair-metal bands we've (almost) all been studiously ignoring for the last decade The Pretty Reckless - in Taylor Momsen - even have a lass whose banshee wailing could be mistaken for a hairless chested youth in a Stockholm bar in some songs.

The plan of attack here in this meaty hard rock offering is at the same time simple and well constructed. The album lays out its intent with a fairly simple rawk rock number called Follow Me Down. And down is where she is effectively offering to go if you get my meaning. The 'look how debauched we are' schtick continues with far right baiting tune Going to Hell. One look at the online forums will attest that (in one particular country at least) there are still wing-nuts lining up to be outraged even at the time of this albums release. Scary stuff.

The real craft of the album does make itself felt as the album progresses. While much of the guitar work is downright simple in sound and while the production keeps things robust there is variety on offer. The third track has some almost twee sounding chants which almost succeed in distracting you away from how contrived the lyrics are. House on the Hill provides the obligatory mellow number that usually appears as track three or four on albums such as this but in this case it works. Taylor has a voice with a little more body than many other ladies and while the music is simple it is justified by the needs of the song.

As the album moves on you get a few more dollops of good time blasting heavy rock including the nicely layered Absolution.
