When last have we had a 9 up in this bitch?

C'mon gimme something baby, this is the Endgame.

Number: 22

The reason the band is called Hole is because it feels like you’re falling into an infinite void of sorrow. Damn, this shit sad. There’s some real heavy themes on this and it gets kinda hard to listen to it at times.

I don't care if Courtney Love murdered Kurt Cobain. This album is great.
If the second leg of this album was as strong as the first, this would be one of the best 90's grunge/rock albums, as the first half is song after song of anthemic and empowering tunes, with some fantastic songwriting attached. Unfortunately the second half loses focus somewhat, but not enough to ruin the fun.

Standout: Asking for it
Favs: Violet, Miss World, Rockstar, Doll Parts, Plump, Softer; Softest, Jennifer’s Body
Least fav: She walks on me
