Boomkat Product Review:
Single, 'In Shock' gets things underway with some of the most grandiose, orchestral rock music of Hersh's career, and that's very much the way this album plays out: the writing feels familiarly Kristin Hersh from the outset, but the production here is bigger and brighter than ever, with mixing duties taken on by the multiple Grammy winning Trina Shoemaker, who has worked with Hersh as far back as Throwing Muses' University album. She's certainly done a good job of balancing the rawness of Hersh's voice and barbed writing with the epic sweetness of the strings that augment much of the album. A rare moment of quiet comes in the shape of the comically titled blues guitar intermission, 'Christian Hearse', which immediately precedes 'Ice', a wistful, utterly gorgeous piece of dark balladeering. Next up, 'Under The Gun' sees Hersh revisiting her early nineties self with a proto-grunge riff that gets all but swallowed by the symphonic arrangement that swirls around it. It makes you think: this is what Courtney Love might sound like if she steered clear of Linda Perry. Excellent stuff indeed.
