Previews

Rolling Stone (9/17/98, pp.95-96) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...high-impact, rock-fueled pop....The album teems with sonic knockouts....It's accessible, fiery and intimate--often at the same time. Here is a basic guitar record that's anything but basic..."
Spin (1/99, p.91) - Ranked #11 on Spin's list of "Top 20 Albums of '98."
Spin (10/98, pp.136-138) - 9 (out of 10) - "...this is a magnificent pop record....CELEBRITY SKIN carries the conversation beyond the traditional postpunk loop of raw power and pretty poison, dirty glam and curdled self-loathing...."

After getting more press than O.J. Simpson, Courtney Love and Hole went underground to put together this quality, guitar-driven rock/pop release. CELEBRITY SKIN is packed from beginning to end with up-tempo, hard rock gems that show Love's strength and direction as a songwriter. Co-writing several tracks on CELEBRITY SKIN is Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan ("Malibu", "Petals").
The title track is co-penned by Corgan with Love scripting the lyrics. Kicking into overdrive from the first chord, the song talks about the often-comical pursuit of fortune and fame. The lyrics on "Hit So Hard" make you wonder whether Love is talking about domestic abuse or the drop-dead feeling that results from spotting the most beautiful boy in the world across the room? The lyrics are smart enough to support both theories. Other tracks to check out are "Awful," "Reasons To Be Beautiful" and "Boys On The Radio."
