Ignore the hype, just listen to the mustic
on May 22, 2003
There is a time and place for everything. The time and the place for me, to listen to this album, is any time I'm angry or stressed. Turn up the stereo and blast out Violet, Miss World Doll Parts - hell.. just blast out the whole darn album.
Courtney's voice is kind of raspy and sweet at the same time, but I find that it fits completely with the songs and the sentiment of this album.
The guitar playing is loud and brash, just like Ms. Love, and Live Through This.
When it comes down to it, I think that if you could personify a person into music, then Live Through This would BE Courtney - at times quiet and pretty, at times suddenly surprising you with loud abrasive rock and expletives, disarming you, offending you.
Did I mention I love this album?
