Everything has already been said in the comments below. :) Great pressing. Record Industry simply knows how to make vinyl - all of my records pressed by RI have zero issues whatsoever.

Courtney Love's celebrity status arose from her marriage to Kurt Cobain. At the height of Nirvana's fame in the early 1990s, they were arguably as famous as John & Yoko in terms of publicity, resulting in Courtney receiving widespread vitriol and Kurt resenting the backlash from his so-called fans. Courtney's own band Hole was formed well before her relationship with Kurt began. Their sludge punk studio debut, "Pretty On The Inside" failed to assimilate the commercial alternative rock arena, whereas its follow-up "Live Through This" macabrely coincided with Kurt's suicide and gained immense mainstream attention, causing the rumour mill to go into overdrive. Hole's disparagers speculated that their huge leap in quality as a band and newfound caustic wit and strong melodic base could only be as a result of uncredited input from Kurt, who provided backing vocals on two songs. In fact, Courtney had previously rejected an official collaboration with Cobain, and according to many of the band's associates, he was wholly unfamiliar with the songs during the recording process, which is unsurprising considering the album's strictly feminine allusions to Barbie dolls and Gone With The Wind. In spite of the furore, "Live Through This" was met with significant critical acclaim on its own merits, earning multi-platinum status by the end of 1994.

There's no denying that Kurt influenced the album's musical and lyrical content, not to mention the emotional baggage attached to it, but "Live Through This" is a contemporary alternative rock classic that deserves to be hailed as such. In a bid to attract a wider audience, Love took the band in a more professional direction, with the album largely following established grunge patterns whilst maintaining a hard rock sound enhanced by refined song structures and slick arrangements. Regardless of Hole embracing sophisticated instrumentation and emphasizing hooks and harmonies, Love's feminist perspective led her to be affiliated with the riot grrrl movement. Vituperatively delivered soft verses and harsh choruses, bridges and power chords pervade "She Walks On Me," "I Think That I Would Die," "Gutless," "Plump," and "Violet", all of which deal authentically with themes of substance abuse, insecurity and body image. On the self-image front, "Miss World" and "Rock Star", along with the rest of the album, directly reference Love's personal life and rejection of punk conformity, dispelling any riot grrrl comparisons by criticising the entire movement. Love's mercurially vocalised autobiographical microcosms and cutting cynicism greatly benefit the melancholic, mellow ballads "Doll Parts" and "Softer, Softest", both of which are devoid of aggression, transcending the rock format entirely. Even the iconic cover art, depicting a mascara-stained beauty pageant winner, accords with the album's overall concept of female ill-treatment, of each other, themselves and from society at large.

"Live Through This" revels in its scornful, poetic and congruent narratives, giving a vivid, almost blackly comic account of the worst aspects of being a female middle-class misfit against a corrosive yet catchy backdrop of thrash pop. By virtue of its musicality, velocity and quotability, the album has come to be reappraised by those who, at the time, could not dismiss the headlines and simply listen to the songs without bias. Unlike other zeitgeist-capitalizing rock records of the '90s, Love's nihilistic opera still makes a wonderful noise and refuses to be overshadowed, remaining as culturally and historically impactful as it did during that tragic period in 1994.

4.5/5

Awesome. Sounds alive, dynamic, quiet. Pressing is flat. Couldn't ask for more.

Quite muddy and bassy sound. I like bass and I normally use EQ with more bass, but this time I had to go "direct". Otherwise it plays well.

I am very far from an audiophile but I can easily say this sounds superior to the 2016 official reissue.

Mine also came with a fold out 'live through this' wall poster inside. Is this the same for everyone?

This pressing does sound amazing. Highly recommended for anyone getting into grunge. Don't let Courtney Love's polarizing persona get in the way of giving this album a chance. Love her or hate her (or both), this is a classic.
