Description: 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.

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"Grunge’s drama queen makes good Before Courtney Love became a Hollywood sideshow, her band made one of the most potent albums of the post-punk era.

Standout tracks: “Violet,” “Doll Parts”"

The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women (150 music items)

"Released on April 12, 1994 — seven days after her late husband's suicide, Live Through This is the first major label release and most definitive work by Courtney Love and her band Hole. Often viewed in the shadow of Kurt Cobain but built to eclipse it, the album is a mosaic of songs piecing together the band's former noise-grunge sound ("She Walks On Me") with an accessible rock melodicism ("Doll Parts").

"Released within days of Kurt Cobain’s suicide, widow Courtney Love’s Live Through This would have been potent, poignant and damn near perfect even without his passing. Standout track: “Doll Parts” "
