Description du produit

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...a pleasure 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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Purgatory/Paradise is a revolutionary fusion of music and text from seminal indie rock band Throwing Muses.

Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses’s lead singer/songwriter, is one of the most well-respected musicians to emerge from the 1980s indie rock scene. Her work has influenced artists such as Cat Power, Alanis Morrissette, Lush, and Sleater-Kinney, as well as Riot Grrrls everywhere.

Ten years in the making, Hersh and Throwing Muses’s 32-track album Purgatory/Paradise is the centerpiece of this deluxe 64-page book which also contains more than two dozen photographs and artwork by Kristin Hersh and band member Dave Narcizo; lyrics for each song; stories and essays that accompany each track written by Hersh; and instructions for downloads of exclusive content, including demos and outtakes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great new album from Hersh & co 22 décembre 2013
Par Atom Joy - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

I think I would just say this...this album is Kristin's Abbey Road. It is a wonderful flowing piece of continuous music that showcases her at the peak of her creative powers, along with the two out Muses.

All the unexpected hooky melodies weave with a narrative that dances between surreal and cerebral leaving you fully satisfied as well a spell bounds by Kristin's story telling. One of the best albums of the year by far. As other reviewers have noted your perspective and experiencing will continual to evolve the more this album gets into your rotation, which is the true test of greatness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must own 22 mars 2014
Par Spiceman45 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As I sit listening to this straight through for the first time (and as a huge TM fan) I cannot get over how amazing this collection of songs is! It is incredibly cohesive, diverse and innovative. I'm challenged to think of another TM album I would recommend more, and that is saying a lot! A must own for any fan, and as good a place to jump into their music as any I would say if it's new to you. This far exceeded my expectations for a new album from them after all this time.

Kristin Hersh is a must for anyone with a soul, anyone who feels different and needs inspiration to let it show creatively, anyone with a heart. I love her guitar playing as well as her emotional delivery and amazing, unique voice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hersh's Struggles Enrich Us All 13 mars 2014
Par Carlos Muebles - Publié sur Amazon.com
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?
