Purgatory / Paradise by Throwing Muses

Angst-come-self-destruction from Throwing Muses. Purgatory / Paradise was realeased initially in 2013 but Happy Happy Birthday To Me have decided it needs to be on all mediums, including vinyl, cassette as well as CD. No zip-disk though. It's their first album in a decade and it sounds like what you'd expect - like a monged out Primal Scream. It also comes with a book & loads of arty stuff.

8/10 Jack 5th February 2015

I listened to it twice, all the way through, and was transfixed both times. Kristin's soothing voice coupled with amazing background music and fantastic, if sometimes poignant, lyrics make for a lovely album. 32 songs may seem like a lot, but a few of them are divided into separate parts, each part retaining the meaning of the song yet different in a beautiful way. My personal favourite is "Opiates", although "Sunray Venus" is cutting a close second. And although Hersh wrote all of these songs of her own volition - which is a total deviation from her traditional path - they don't lose the Hershiness that her fans love.
