Album of the day: Celebrity Skin by Hole

If you ever wanted to hear semi-modern, semi-grunge, semi-industrial all female classic rock record look no further than Hole's amazingly powerful record titled Celebrity Skin. Hole or Courtney Love have never done anything before or after that even remotely comes close to the musical, lyrical or poetic genius of this album. There is a something raw, intensely feral about Love's voice and something extremely poignant about the lyrics. The atmosphere is dark but not depressing. The mood is angry but not violently so. It is one of those rare records that you could here from start to finish in one sitting.
