It's aggressive music with female vocals.
alexander laurence
Kristin Hersh & band have experience enough to do such music avoiding boredom and cliches.
Hugues Orsetti
That amazing song alone is worth buying this cd for.

Congratulations. If you've made your way to this and most other reviews of this record, it means you, too, are on the brink of discovering, imho, one of THE greatest records to come along in a LONG, LONG time. I recently read a review that said if Cobain were still alive, this is the kind of music he would put out today. I cannot imagine a higher, or more deserving, compliment. The only thing better than 50 Foot Wave's Golden Ocean, is seeing 50 Foot Wave perform it live. What a band. What a record. This is essential listening.

Golden Ocean is Kristin Hersh's always-magical songwriting and lyrics all rolled up into an explosive thrashrock wrapper, courtesy of drumming monster Rob Ahlers and longtime fellow Throwing Muse, Bernard Georges. From start to finish, its all rock n' roll all the time. The ultrafast album openers 'Long Painting' and 'Bone China' set the stage well, then 'Pneuma' comes along, with its instantly memorable Zepellin-esque guitar riff and its opening line "Did I just hear you try... to lemon scent the sky?", and that's the exact moment you just know this is going to be a classic album, right up there with the best things Kristin has ever done (and that's saying a lot!). That amazing song alone is worth buying this cd for. But after that, the great songs just keep on coming, from the catchy punk pop song 'Clara Bow' to the Bluesy dirginess and sad lyrics of 'Petal' ("I remember you... Seventeen in the dark outside a party... Crying in the dark, I'm sorry"), all the way through to the melodic Throwing Muses-like 'Diving' and the album's epic closer, 'Golden Ocean'; With its infectious metal-style chords and complex structure it's possibly the heaviest, most headbang-able song ever to emerge from Kristin's guitar.

one thing i noticed about Golden Ocean is that it doesn't play quite like an Album with a capital A, more like a collection of great standalone songs. it flows fine through most of it, but i think you could play the cd on SHUFFLE mode and it'd fit together almost as well, though that may be a good thing for an album like this where EVERY song is a standout. but i guess i'm starting to miss those little mood-setting transitional songs that were interspersed throughout many of Kristin's solo and Throwing Muses albums, like calms before the storms.

The only trouble with releasing a record this good so early in the year is that it may get unfairly overshadowed when it comes time to make end of the year "Best of..." lists that everyone hates, yet always seem to make. This record is great, great, great. If you have found this page then you are already assured to love it. There are 11 songs on this CD and each one would be the best song on 11 seperate CDs by anyone else (not that anybody else could make these songs). Standouts among the standouts for me include: Petal, Golden Ocean, Dog Days, Pneuma, Ginger Park, and Clara Bow. As of now this CD has only been out for two days, but it's all I've been playing, over and over, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Be aware going in that it is joyfully LOUD and get ready to be Amazed at the sheer brilliance.

I have heard most this these 50 Footwave recordings and they seems very listenable. They are very appealing. I am not so familiar with Throwing Muses or Kristin Hersh's solo work. But I heard this record and the other one, and it seems like an amazing band. There is really nobody doing music like this. It's aggressive music with female vocals. It has big guitar riffs and screaming vocals. I just love it. I don't know enough about it. It reminds me a little of Wire "Pink Flag." It's original music that is reaching people out there in the online community.

this cd rocks. one killer song after another. classic guitar-driven american rock and roll with a true punk edge. head-banging bass and drums. these songs just spank anything else out there. very hard.

i'm a diehard fan of throwing muses and also hersh's solo material, and i'm totally thrilled with this--it's so cool when your favorite artist keeps surprising you by taking risks and pushing the envelope.

this is american rock history: X, nirvana, fifty foot wave.

i can't stop blasting golden ocean. adrenaline rush.
