Revue de presse

Purgatory/Paradise is a . . . gorgeous, interactive art book . . . Hersh’s lyrics and stories would make it a compelling read even without the music. (Boing Boing)

Purgatory/Paradise was devised both as a record and as a book, with essays by Hersh and art by Narcizo. It’s both a gorgeous standalone object . . . and a sort of decoder for the album’s tracks . . . (Pitchfork)

Nothing short of epic . . . wrenching, alarming, disturbing, and occasionally seasoned with bits of dark humor . . . . a stunning psychological ride. Like the most powerful of drugs. . . it’s the stuff addictions are made of. (American Songwriter, four stars)

Awesome. (Flavorwire)

Triumphant . . . fresh and expansive . . . What is clear is that this record, and book, which call into question what records and books and can and should do, how they can and should interact, still delivers in a basic, thrilling way. (Popmatters)

Art, essays and outstanding new music collide on a surreal Throwing Muses epic . . . a soul-stirring collection [of] musical mini-masterpieces accompanied by lyrical prose vignettes exuding the same nimble friskiness and wry, subversive brilliance that characterized Hersh’s fantastic 2010 memoir. (Magnet, nine out of ten stars)

Both brutal and magical . . . written with unimaginable warmth and such goofball humor, a perfectly imperfect encapsulation of what makes Hersh’s work so fortifying even as it devastates. (Popdose)

Praise for Kristin Hersh: “It’s almost impossible to imagine the visceral bleats of singers like Corin Tucker or Marissa Paternoster without Kristin Hersh.” (Pitchfork)

“Hersh is a fearless rock innovator.” (New York Times)

“One of America’s finest songwriters.” (Simon Reynolds, author of Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-84)

Praise for Rat Girl:“Hersh has pretty much been to hell and back and lived to tell the tale...extremely well written.” (Huffington Post)

“Sensitive and emotionally raw... it’s also wildly funny.” (New York Times Book Review)

“With its reined in plot line and ethereal prose style, Rat Girl reads more like a novel...apleasure to read.” (Slate)

“An original beauty.” (Mary Gaitskill, author of Veronica and Don't Cry)

“A thoroughly engrossing work by an original voice-hopefully the first of many.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Ms. Hersh’s prose delves into the memories that occasioned the songs, mingling tour incidents, childhood trauma, philosophical musings and hardheaded life lessons (The New York Times)

Great new album from Hersh & co 22 décembre 2013
Par Atom Joy - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It's 25 years since Throwing Muses' original line-up blew me away, and a barnstorming gig in June 1989 is still my all-time favourite. (Not that there haven't been great Muses gigs since then!) This beautifully produced CD/Book is a fine and fitting installment in the Throwing Muses catalogue. There are several strong tracks here (e.g. Lazy Eye, Milan, Slippershell) that quickly work their way into your imagination, and several other more subtle or apparently slight pieces that will slow-burn around your brain. Overall, the album rewards repeat listens, revealing new pleasures and characteristics. Most of Kristen Hersh's familiar lyrical tropes are present; she's still an expert at putting a twist on common cliches and delivering dead-pan puns, and it's great to find she can still surprise after all these years. An exploration of the strangeness and wonder and horror of life as it's lived in 21st century America, I would strongly recommend this to anyone who's enjoyed the Muses in the past, and to anyone who wants their rock music to surprise and provoke them.

Better than ever 9 décembre 2013
Par Matthew Jones - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Gave it a listen over the weekend while I was writing - and found it to be a surprisingly engaging album. It has a fresh feel to it, and doesn't sound at all like the TM have a lost a step. Really pleased.

Hersh's Struggles Enrich Us All 13 mars 2014
Par Carlos Muebles - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
5 stars out of 5. Everything I hoped for when I ordered it. The accompanying book, with artwork and artist comments for each track maximize appreciation and understanding of the music. This is an artist at work--not some commercial pap. Hersh is working through her life and problems right here and right before our very eyes. This music above all depicts a daily struggle that is at its heart relentless yet hopeful and above all positive in its outlook. This is a serious listen that can enrich your life. After all, isn't that what ART is supposed to do?

Purgatory/Paradise is Throwing Muses at their finest! 28 décembre 2013
Par Brent Davis - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Purgatory/ Paradise is simply brilliant. The most complete artistic expression yet from Throwing Muses. Kristin Hersh is a rock goddess! Buy all her output - music, books, everything! - you won't be disappointed. David Narcizo's percussion is fantastic, as are his images. Bernard Georges on bass -- wow! Kristin's weird little stories / poetic essays truly enrich the experience of her songs with their wonderfully elliptical lyrics. Buy this as though your very life depended on it!

Another TM classic 31 janvier 2014
Par Mark Jones - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a long time TM/Kristin Hersh fan, I didn't know what to expect from this release. But I wa absolutely blown away by it's newness, mixed with some of the familiar Throwing Muses musical signatures. The short songs flow nicely into one another making it seem like one long song at times. All around, a great addition to the canon.
