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.

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.

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!

The problem with when bands split up and people go solo, the solo artists is compared with the original band. Sure, in this case, the break up wasn't over musical creativity or a feeling like "we've gone everything we can, let's move on". It's inevitable with Soundgarden/Chris Cornell and again with Veruka Salt and Nina Gordon.
The true sense of a artist expanding beyond his/her comfort zones is the solo album. That's when they can try out new styles of music and mature in their musical career. Does Phill Collins songs sound like Genesis? Not exactly. So, why should Nina be condemned by not putting out a "Veruka Salt" sounding album?
With that said, judging the album by it's merits, the music, the feel, the lyrics, this album is a pretty good start. Sure, there's a portion of the album that leans toward pop sound but there's still a few hard edge songs on it. No, this is not Veruka Salt (and the "new" Veruka Salt is not Veruka Salt, either) although there is still some residual salt in the song "Badway".
Yes, if you expect Veruka material, you will be disappointed. Don't get it if that's what you expect. If you like great lyrics, some deep moody songs to share with that special someone, music to kick back to, and a few tunes to rock to, then this is your album. I have 500 CDs from genres ranging from alternative, metal, punk, blues, etc and this is now on my official top ten list.
