Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Veruca Salt were a band torn between catchy pop hooks and arena rock dreams. Producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crüe) tried to help them realize the "big" sound with mixed success. Now, he's helping former Veruca Salt singer-guitarist Nina Gordon turn away from "big rock" and toward the lush power pop championed by musicians like Aimee Mann. The title track, "Now I Can Die," and "2003" feature stacked harmonies and a carefree gait that recall the melodic renaissance of early-'80s new wave, with the additional bite of modern-day production values. Hammond B-3s, pedal steels, Mellotrons, and Chamberlins add somber texture to "Horses in the City" and "Hold On to Me" without sacrificing the straight-ahead rock feel. Producer Rock adds a bit too much gloss here and there, but in any case Gordon's a power-pop diva in waiting. --Rob O'Connor

When musicians break away from bands to pursue solo acts, the result can either be a good one or a bad one. The transition for Nina Gordon to go from her previous band, Veruca Salt, to a solo career is an example of such good results. With her solo debut, Nina Gordon displays her strong vocal talents, as well as an ability to write songs that can go from mellow ("Tonight and the Rest of My Life," "2003") to lovesick ("New Year's Eve") to aggressive ("Badway," "Hate Your Way").
Nina sings about various subjects, such as discovering the meaning of love ("Now I Can Die"), the feeling of being out of place ("Horses in the City"), the emptiness of seeing an ex-boyfriend at a party [sample lyric: "I'm here/ The party's all around me/ You're there, indifference has found me"] ("New Years Eve"), and more about falling in and out of love. She also does a fine job with her own rendition of the classic song "The End of the World" [not the R.E.M. version]
This is the type of album where you don't feel like skipping over particular songs, because there aren't any songs to skip over; the whole album is worth listening to. From the rock-out guitar riffs to Nina's airy yet strong voice, you can't help but want to sing along.
Nina is no longer in Veruca Salt, but with this album, she tells us she still knows how to rock...and then some.

you guys wanna hear the truth about this album?
the truth is that it is worth every single penny you slap down on the counter for it. why? because you can just tell that nina put a lot of herself into this music? because she finally chose to do that kind of music she wants to do without having to compromise with louise post? nah...it's just a great. there are very few cd's out there that you can actually buy and listen from begginning to end without having to press the skip button. this is one of those few cd's.
i first heard bout nina gordon from hearing her song "tonight and the rest of my life" just once on the radio...they played it just once and that was enough to get me to search desperately for it. i finally found it online and bought it that very moment. i didn't know that nina used to be a part of veruca salt, i wasn't familiar with her musical talent or style at all. but the first time i heard her cd, i loved it! and why should you guys listen to me? because my opinion is unbiased. veruca salt fans want more of an edge/feministic/angry-yet-sweet album....but that this isn't veruca salt, this is nina gordon who's doing the kind of music she wants and not what anyone else wants ( well with the exception of bob rock...the producer..). you guys gotta give nina a chance, listen to this album as if you've never heard her before, and believe me...you'll be hooked!

Label me surprised. Terrifically surprised. And happily. I had few positive expectations for this debut solo album by the former co-leader of Veruca Salt. While that group's two albums held a few pleasures, they were uneven (to say the least), and certainly did not suggest in any way that there was a repressed power popster in their midst.
But there was, and here's the fruit of her newfound liberation. Imagine a cross between Aimee Mann, Juliana Hatfield and latter-era Bangles, with a dollup of Joan Jett tossed in for good measure, and you have a good idea of what you'll find herein. Catchy-as-heck songs, big budget widescreen production, big energy, good vibes, good singing, good playing, good gosh. There are a few duff lyrical couplets ("He likes to try on my clothes but not my underwear"...ugh) and a few too many coy plays on the word "blow". Lyrically this ain't Aimee Mann, but that's hardly more than a quibble when the music is this good...
This album is radio friendly in all the best ways, and Gordon seems more than a bit photogenic. With any luck this record will lead the charge against the moronic factory teen pop that kidnapped popular music a few years ago.
Now more than ever, we all need a Nina Gordon at the top of charts.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent solo debut July 27, 2000
By sask
Format:Audio CD
Nina Gordon's solo debut Tonight And The Rest Of My Life has the former Veruca Salt member distancing herself from the band's catchy indie-rock to a more slickly-produced, mellower sound with Lilith Fair-type confessional lyrics. The entire album is all style with very little substance, but then again, Gordon's output in Veruca Salt, which includes the killer singles 'Seether' and 'Volcano Girls', was never that deep to begin with. What Gordon does possess, though, is a real gift for writing songs with a hook. That's most evident in the soaring title track, which is one of the more memorable songs I've heard this year. Gordon adopts the same songwriting style in other songs like '2003', 'Horses In The City', 'Got Me Down', 'Fade To Black' and 'Hold On To Me'. It's when Gordon chooses to rock out like she used to do in her old band that the album really picks up: 'Now I Can Die', 'Badway', 'New Years Eve', and especially 'Number One Camera' are terrific powerpop songs. At times Bob Rock's heavyhanded production gets in the way, especially in the last three songs on the album: 'Slow To Ride' is a failed attempt at a country-tinged ballad, 'Hate Your Way' is a slow, uninteresting, whiney song, and the nauseating cover of 'The End Of The World' seems to be preparing Gordon for a new career of singing cheesy Disney movie songs. As long as Gordon remembers to stay in the pop rock mold and not have her head in the clouds so much, she'll continue prove she's a genuine talent. After listening to Tonight And The Rest Of My Life and Veruca Salt's bitter, very disappointing new album, it's clear where the real talent in Veruca Salt lied, and it's a good thing that Nina Gordon left the band when she did.

Nina's solo work (both CDs) are worth having. This is not the same rocker girl from that earlier band, as good as they were. The melodies are moving and memorable. Read more
