Review/Comments/Thoughts:
Who would have thought that the album name would be so true in a literal sense for Hole's Courtney Love, Wife of Kurt Cobain who in the first few months of this album's release had to push through the suicide of Kurt Cobain and the Drug overdose of her bass player Kristen Pffaf, Even a person whose life is a private one this would be a tramatic feat to go through this, but with Courtney's life in the spotlight she had to push even harder. Live Through This is Hole's finest album. A Definite Rocker Chick piece. One Reviewer on Amazon.com observed "This is Courtney's finest hour. Think of it as her 'Nevermind'" This could not be any more true. No Filler songs on this CD every song is a favorite.

The Biggest noteable on the followup to Live Through This was the fact that Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan was a musical Consultant on this album and Assisted in the writing of half this album. Some don't know that Corgan was a former flame of Courtney's before she met Kurt. Reguardless, Corgan challenged Courtney to write in new ways in the writing of this album. Its a great album, Another noteable to me is the song Boys on the Radio is a remake of the song she did on MTV's Unplugged which was called at the time Sugar Coma, This CD has no filler songs I like each song on this Album

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
From my understanding this was originally going to be a Courtney Love solo album but near release I had read it was going to be a Hole album. None of the original members sans Courtney. However I had seen an interview with her on Fuse recently and she looked exhausted and the interviewer seemed more interested in Literal lyrics meaning and reliving the past of one Kurt Cobain. All in all this is a strong album, Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins' fame and Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame both co-wrote songs with Courtney and Guitarist Micko Larkin, I do have a few issues with the way Courtney sings on a few songs the beginning of Pacific Coast Highway and Honey, Pacific Coast Highway, the opening is very very similar to Boys on The Radio off of the Celebrity Skin album and the song Sugar Coma (which was an early version of the song) Its almost as if they took the opening chords and recycled them or something. Not my favorite song on the album. I gotta give my props to Nobody's Daugter, Skinny Little Bitch, Down, Never Go Hungry, Samantha, and Letter to God
