When you think of Hole (well, when I do, anyways), you think of the crap that comes out of obnoxious frontwoman Courtney Love's mouth. You do, I do, and I'm sure even Drew Barrymore does, too. No matter. But when thinking of Hole musically, things aren't quite as negative. I used to be a Hole fan, but as time went by, and Courtney became even more annoying, I stopped listening to the band entirely. And after looking back at that Hole phase of mine, I wondered what I was even thinking (actually, I still wonder...). Then, one day, I pulled out this CD from my "never listen to" pile, and decided to give it a spin for whatever reason. And you know what? This is still a damn good CD; perhaps even better as time goes on, as I certainly like it more than I once did. Hole's earlier material was loud and angry, but unlike "Live Through This," it was all misguided; kind of like Limp Bizkit, angry just for the sake of being angry (though not as dumb). "Celebrity Skin" was Courtney's failed attempt at making Hole a Hollywood band. And even with its catchy hooks and riffs and intelligent lyrics, it was still a so-so album (barely, I might add). "Live Through This," however, is completely different. Courtney snarls with rage that would scare most Kid Rock fans. And unlike Kid Rock, she's intelligent and thoughtful in expressing her pain. And she certainly expresses a lot of her pain. Dealing with all sorts of trouble women go through (image being the one that comes up most ofter), Courtney tackles one problem head on and rages on to the next like it's nothing. "Live Through This" opens up with "Violet," which is often considered their best song.Read more ›

Of the various grunge bands in the early 1990's, Hole certainly has to be regarded as one of the landmark groups with the release of its debut album "Live Through This" nearly 10 years ago. Formed by the well-known wife of grunge icon Kurt Cobain (1967-1994), Courtney Love sings all of the vocals as well as plays guitar in a unique style. My ratings out of 5 stars for each of the songs on this album are as follows:
1. "Violet" (5+). A fast & powerful start to this great album featuring Courtney's powerful vocals. One of the best songs on the album and the perfect way to start it.
2. "Miss World" (5). Starts slowly, then builds into a forceful crescendo with Courtney's screaming vocals.
3. "Plump" (5). A fast and aggressive song mixed with soft and screaming vocals, giving way to a softer sound midway before escalating back into its fast and aggressive beginning.
4. "Asking For It" (4.5). A soft but impressive ballad that later escalates into a more emotional statement from Courtney at the end.
5. "Jennifer's Body" (4.5). A faster song backed primarily with Courtney's screaming vocals giving way to more melodic parts.
6. "Doll Parts" (5+) An emotional and dark ballad that is one of Hole's most recognizable songs with Courtney comparing herself to a doll.
7. "Credit in the Straight World" (5). Starts very softly but builds rapidly into a complex song with unusual chord combinations.
8. "Softer, Softest" (4.5). Starts as a soft and emotional ballad but slowly builds to an emotional crescendo towards the end.
9. "She Walks on Me" (4). A fast, metal & harsher sounding song.
10. "I Think That I Would Die" (4.5).

I STILL want to write about how utterly amazing this album is after it's been released for seven years. I still remember hearing the first four lines of Miss World for the first time, I turned off the freeway and went to a record shop and bought it. This is absolutely a essential album and to consider that I went on to be a hard-core raver (since retired), this is still my so absolutely special album. It's just so emotionally moving, the lyrics ask questions never asked in rock music ever before and never have been asked again -at least not half as well. It's about rape, about being objectified, about the searing obsessive love and the willingness to give you all to keep someone alive. Just topics never addressed before, never in popular culture anyway but should have long ago. Rock and roll is supposed to be in your face and tell you like it is. Actually I could name every single song on this album and have something to say. Most of all though...the music ROCKS, it's tight and its chaotic yet makes perfect sense. But what makes it as ultra special as it is. Is it moves to a different beat to conventional rock music. Hole does it with enough female timing and energy to blast away the ceiling of your apartment 10 times over. Violet may just be the best rock anthem every sung by a female, no, it one of the best rock anthems EVER. Courtney gave all of us who don't remember Janis Joplin a rock and roll female hero of our own. If for nothing else, this album came up with the best line of rock lyric ever. Even if Hole never does another album, that line itself, mixed with the growling, screaming voice of Courtney Love should ensure thier place in the history of rock. She spoke to so many of us, expressed exactly what we were thinking when she went "I want to be the girl with the most cake."
