Album artwork for Live Through This by Hole

Hole's Live Through This. Available here on LP and CD.

This is the second studio album by alternative rock band Hole. The title is derived from a quote in the film 'Gone With The Wind.' Considered a contemporary classic, this record was included in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of '500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.' Features production by Sean Slade and Paul Q Kolderie with mixing by Scott Litt and J Mascis. This whole album is filled with scathing fury, mostly directed at the impossible situation that confronts women when they are asked to be both wild sources of pleasure and unblemished mother figures. Live Through This uses the same recipe of punk and metal wrapped around pop melodies that made Nirvana so captivating, but Hole uses the methodology in a more conventional manner. The metal ingredient tends to dominate, perhaps because it's the simplest to master, and too often the album resembles early Heart or late Joan Jett—particularly when Courtney Love opens up with her big, wailing voice. Love externalizes her anger, blaming all her problems on the rest of the world. Self-confrontation makes for far more interesting songs.
