Editors’ Notes In the late ‘00s, onetime actress Taylor Momsen traded her sweet girlishness for combustible hard-rock intensity as the front-wailer of New York's The Pretty Reckless. Blessed with a versatile voice that can command a fierce gutsiness (atop the thundering power chords of bluesy “Hit Me Like a Man”) yet also sound mesmerizingly angelic (on breezy, acoustic “You”), the profoundly self-determined rocker has solidified her cred with every release since their 2010 debut. Hits like the fuming “Take Me Down” see the quartet propelled by swaggering syncopated guitar à la the Stones, and “Oh My God” is a blazing post-punk frenzy.
