Courtney Love - America’s Sweetheart
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Courtney Love - America’s SweetheartA kinder Courtney Love? Judging by the cover, a Vargas-style pinup painting of the rock star as a guitar-slinging (fallen?) angel, you might think so. But on her long-awaited solo debut, the always controversial Love is anything but sweet. Tracks like the ferocious single “Mono” and the tortured “Julian” exemplify the former Hole leader’s new solo sound, assisted by legendary MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer. Aside from the wistful ballad “Hold On to Me,” Love’s latest is mostly a fierce, fuzzed-out homage to garage rock.
