Nobody’s Daughter: Hole

Rating: 90%

220px-Hole_Nobody's_DaughterAfter a long dry spell since 1998, “Nobody’s Daughter” was released in 2010 by Hole ending a 12 year hiatus. I must admit that I really like this album, even though, it’s another Courtney Love solo album, as she is the only original member.  This may be my favorite Hole album. The new Hole line up features Courtney Love on vocals and guitar, Micko Larkin on guitar, Shawn Dailey on bass and Stu Fisher on drums.

The music just has a certain feel to it, that really makes me enjoy listening to this album. It has attitude, it still has it’s angry parts, it has some very good melodies and yet it retains some of the classic sound that Courtney Love and Hole had back in the 1990’s. It has some really nice tempos and the music and lyrics are well thought out and written. It’s not really punk, but it’s not grunge either. But it does fit well into the music style that became popular in the 2000’s.  It rocks and then it has it’s softer moments. Although, many consider this as Love’s second attempt for a second solo album, I must say, that her vocals are to me at the peak of her career. It almost has a Stevie Nicks feel and influence. Her voice is much cleaner than on her pervious records.

Highlights include, “Nobody’s Daughter”, “Skinny Little Bitch”, “Samantha”, and “Letter to God.”
