Courtney Love Has A New Hole… Record, Leading This Week’s New Album Releases

I'm easily amused and this week I'm amused by the ebb and flow of new release weeks. Last week my cup runneth over. This week I could cancel my flood insurance and sleep peacefully, but I'm here and you're here so best we talk about something.

This week's story is the return of the Widow Cobain. Courtney Love has a new album out and she's dusting off her old moniker for its release. Hole's Nobody's Daughter features none of the other musicians from the band's '90s moniker. While other band members put a little of their personal stamp on the music, Hole was always the C-Love show and it is once again. After years of (mostly) deserved bad press, Nobody's Daughter has gotten some favorable reaction. Does anyone still care? Is anyone still interested in what she has to say, musically? I'm the wrong person to answer that question because I frankly gave nilly a fuck the first time around. I still don't.

Let's see… what else am I not buying this week? Ah, yes, we have The Adventures Of Bobby Ray from B.o.B. I'm passing on this one but a lot of you won't if iTunes sales are to be believed. Maybe I shouldn't pass on it. If you want to know more about the album and B.oB, our own Clayton Perry interviewed him. Do your homework, kids, and make your own call.  Clayton also has an interview with Jo Dee Messina, whose new album is also out this week.

We've also got a slew of re-issues this week. Someone decided it's time to churn the Clapton catalog again. His discography has already been remastered. Now bonus tracks are being added to entice you buy. First up are Cream's Disraeli Gears (itself already re-issued in a deluxe package once) and 461 Ocean Blvd. I've got both. I'm saying no here, but they're yours if you want them as is the rest of our list…

About Josh Hathaway

  • http://marksaleski.com Mark Saleski

    that Balkan Beat Box record is really a load of fun.

    i also want the Freddie Fender collection because i only have one record on vinyl and every so often i have the urge to hear “Third Rate Romance”.

    as for Hole…i never understood the appeal of the first record. Celebrity Skin was actually great, but let’s be honest here…it was a Billy Corgan record.

    BC co-wrote about 1/3 of this one, too.

    gees, what a duo. they get together, make an album…and then part and spend the next several years calling each other names.

    I don’t think Courtney has ever crossed a bridge she hasn’t burned and she may not even be the most difficult person in that “relationship.”

  • Tom Johnson

    Courtney’s just jealous that she doesn’t look as good in mom-jeans as Billy’s girlfriend Jessica Simpson.

    Ah, yes, well done, Tom. We needed a hypotenuse in this asshole triangle. Welcome to geometry class, Jess.
