Note: The following review will not contain the 'G' word anywhere! GRUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck.
It's 2010 and it would seem that the flannel rock revival is in full sway so grab your shotguns and party like it's 1994! (Yup that's right Courtney Love did infact kill Kurt Cobain as well as shooting J.R. (ED.: These are the reviewer's words and are in no way associated with NSR)). My only previous experience with Hole was their debut 'Pretty on the Inside' which I found unfocused and ultimately rather annoying. I have to admit I really wanted to hate this but whilst it's not a great song and doesn't really go anywhere it is kind of fun and irritatingly catchy very basic and stripped down but retaining a popiness. It makes me wanna form a riot Grrrrrl band and throw tampons at the audience or something. On a side note the new Hole L.P. features our dear sweet Courtney collaborating with Uncle Fester from the Smashing Pumpkins that's two of the most hated people in rock for the price of one! To Summarise this isn't great but if you liked Hole before this surely won't disappoint.
