pretty on the inside is my favourite hole album. tho i was introduced to the group via live through this (my first love), pretty on the inside has surpassed that love over time. if you like raw, buy this album. they used to say that many people would not be able to give this album one listen let alone many. the vocals are incredible. the beats are totally primitive. the guitars are reminiscent of sonic youth. this album takes you on a journey into hell and back. well no, not really back. filled with sexual fury and female rage (to put it mildly). among the best songs are: "teenage whore" "goodsister/badsister" (my fave) "mrs. jones" (the scariest track) and "garbage man". nothing melodic about this recording. except for a snippet of "rhiannon" on "starbelly". best listened to on a rainy day.
