The Pretty Reckless have gone above and beyond on Death by Rock and Roll to create an album that can really connect with the listener.


Taylor Momsen mourns death, celebrates life and rallies against injustice on The Pretty Reckless’ excellent fourth album Death By Rock And Roll.

Hard country rock?
It... exists? I guess, it does nothing to amaze the listener, but also nothing to make him stop the album and make him facepalm, other than the lyrics at points. It just makes you consider, if you're missing the point. The one thing ill give this band, is that the singer has a great voice, but they dont really put it to use.
