EDITORS’ NOTES

Live Through This is one of the best rock albums of the ’90s, period. Released at the height of the grunge boom, it mixes punk ferocity with catchy jangle-pop, and contains some of the most potent feminist lyrics to ever find their way onto the radio. "Miss World" smuggles its confrontational lines within easy-to-digest hooks, while the monster choruses and quiet-loud-explosive dynamics of "Violet" and "Doll Parts" established Courtney Love as a songwriting force to be reckoned with, drama be damned.

I Still Love this....

A lot of speculation that Kurt wrote the songs on this album - I don’t know the story but I must say that this is Hole’s best - A timeless classic, start to finish. I lived in Seattle when this came out and saw Hole live many times. Courtney delivered live. I saw Hole a couple of years ago and ended up leaving halfway through the show cause I didn’t like how Courtney dissed Seattle, as if it was still some po dunk little city. This, along with the fact Courtney has sold out to the Hollywood scene, plastic surgery. Etc. It’s clear to me that after subsequent Hole releases, the magic was gone...and I’m afraid that magic was Kurt’s influence on this record.
