HOLE Released Their Third Kick-Ass ‘CELEBRITY SKIN’ Longplayer 20 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

7 September 2018

Band: HOLE

Album: CELEBRITY SKIN – the band’s third LP

Released: 8 September – 20 years ago

ROLLING STONE review: ” ‘Celebrity Skin’ is an album about fame, beauty, life and their opposites… It’s sprung, flung and fun, high-impact, rock-fueled pop with the body and flexibility of really good hair… You don’t need to know or love Courtney Love — to care about her highly chronicled trek from ripped cropped tops to Versace gowns — to enjoy this album. Even Love herself, though, can’t deny her own myth: In the album’s very first verse, she casts herself as “a walking study/In demonology.” On Celebrity Skin, she isn’t especially after journalistic precision, and she isn’t devising some glam plan to seem brilliant. She just knows exactly the kind of rock star she wants to be, and is it.” – Score: 4/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Courtney Love’s middle-finger to all her haters.
Celebrity Skin is a kick-ass, spit and sneer, glam grunge beast.
