It's definitely an album that grows on you and takes some getting used to, or at least it was like that for me.
Elle
The thing I really like about this CD is that it makes a liar out all those Courtney bashers who insists she never wrote any of her songs.

Granted, 'Pretty on the Inside' isn't a bad album but like 'Celebrity Skin' it is not the first Hole recording I would recommend buying.

Strangly enough Pretty on the Inside has always been my favorite album of Holes. I love and know all the words to Live Through This but Pretty On the Inside is more wild, less commercial, it has more raw beauty and Courtney holds nothing back. This is the album that helped get me through my high school years also. There are more hidden jewels in Pretty on the Inside and the lyrics are wonderful. On Live Through This the songs were more individual and controlled but Pretty on the Inside is one wild, fantastic, beautiful mess. If you liked Celebrity Skin you may not like this album but you should at least give it a try.

Considering the fact that 've been a fan of Hole since I was maybe..mmm,circa 1996(my sister puchased LTT a little later than release date)and being I was only 6 at the time,I fell in LOVE with the album.My first taste was Violet,I thought it was a great song and I sang the chorus at school(not the smartest idea in catholic school)but back to POTI.This is by far ranked as a creative masterpiece I say.With the gritty anthem to girls who lived life as prostitutes,Teenage Whore is your savior.Courtney then goes into thrashing Kat Bjelland for taking authorship of Courtney's 'kinder-whore' look in the song 'BabyDoll' as the album progresses,you WON'T get bored.It's a punk rock gem,with the slef titled song,it's a prophetic song about how the ugly girls get the anthem of inner beauty.It wraps up with a cover of Joni Mitchell's 'Clouds' which is simply breathtaking.Courtney's vocals are unlike anyone elses,and I definatly give her 10 stars for being a poetic genius and for being the symbol of female sexuality as not just mens toys.No Madonna here! Courtney is crowned "Miss World"

Oh my god. This is about my favorite album of all time, along with American Thighs by Veruca Salt, Nevermind by Nirvana, and England by the Sex Pistols. The lyrics are incredibly raw and you're sucked in by "Garbage Man." Seriously, if you do not own this, you should. This was a pivotal moment for feminist punk-rockers everywhere. I love Hole to death, and Pretty on the Inside is my favorite of their albums, though I like Live Through This as well. On Celebrity Skin, they were all caught up in ego and fame, not to mention MTV airwaves. I blame Celebrity Skin for Hole's breakup, because they could not have attempted any harder to sell out. When you go that mainstream, there's nowhere to go but the downward spiral. Back in the day when Pretty on the Inside was released, they were just up there, and it was all about the music. Pretty on the Inside is a perfect combination of grunge, punk, and tell it like it is, raw to the bone, slap in the face lyrics. It should be a crime for anyone to not own this album, it was a truly pivotal moment for women in rock everywhere.

Heavy, raw and open; this CD really blows away any of the so called "Riot Grrls." A lot of kids want "Punk Rock" but they want it as a suburban commodity, nice and pretty and clean. These songs are angry, pissed off, dirty and ooze with female bombast. This is a classic CD and when the smoke clears, you will see that this is grungier and nastier than Nirvana or other so called grunge bands.

When I first got this, I was incredibly disappointed and angry that I'd wasted my $13.99. Upon my second and third listenigs, however, I became hooked. It's definitely an album that grows on you and takes some getting used to, or at least it was like that for me. There's just something eerily beautiful about Courtney's wails that makes you want to keep coming back for more. I realize some people loathe this; I think it's one of those albums you either love or hate. It's honest, in your face, and it doesn't try to be anything. No pretense, no censorship. Just anger, rage, saddness, put into music. There is melody here, though it's not immediately apparent the first time you listen to it. It's kind of unintentionally genius. Anyone who's ever been justifiably angry can relate to this. Courtney takes phrases and infuses them with as much emotion and meaning as they could ever have with her screams. I recommend that everyone at least try this out. There's a chance you'll hate it, but then you could love it as much as me. It's infinitely sad that Hole decided to take what they had here and slowly emasculate it until it became the dreck that is Celebrity Skin.

This album blows me away, every time I listen to it. At first I had a hard time working with Courtney's screams.. but then it turned into a full assault on the mind and senses. Courtney's lyrics are raw.. and often bleed like an open wound.. pouring out hatred and everything that riotgrrls screamed for in the early 1990s. Courtney surely is the "Queen of Noise" on this record, with tracks like "Teenage Whore", "Garbage Man", and "Mrs. Jones". Strap yourself in tight for the long rollercoaster that is Ms. Love herself (and of course Caroline Rue, Jill Emery and Eric Erlandson on this record) Very different than later Hole "Live Through This" and you cannot even compare "Celebrity Skin" to "Pretty on the Inside". Sure, they were a young band, and this was their debut record, but you can tell right from the get go that nothing was going to stop Courtney and her lyrics are reflective of that. Amazing stuff.
