Canadian Holly McNarland is living testimony that good things come in small packages. On Stuff , the diminutive waif sings like a woman three times her size, belting out a brand of full-bodied rock and pop that seems to contain experience well beyond her 23 years. But then that's McNarland's style. Sporting tattoos, facial piercings and coiffed with a short, mottled cap of jet black hair, she might have stepped right out of some goth night spot in downtown Toronto. And, judging by more than a few of her song verses, she might just have gone through the kind of experiences she sings about. But while Stuff often touches on the rougher side of interpersonal, often sexual, relationships, it balances its coarseness with delicacy and maturity. --Nick Heil

"Usually, when I get a CD, I put it in and immediately start pushing the scan button to hear everything. Most often, I end up getting to the last track and removing the CD because nothing grabbed me. But with this disk, I put it in earlier and am on track 7 without scanning. I want to hear every song. It's very nice. She is pleasing to hear and some of the lyrics are already starting to jump out at me, which is refreshing. She has sort of a Cranberries meets Ani Difranco sound, but both of their best qualities, not the stuff that makes me not buy some of their stuff. She does b*tch rock with a vengance and turns around and tells sadness beautifully. I'm impressed."

"Amazing razor sharp lyrics and the perfect songs make this my favorite female rock cd of all time. Absolutely playable from beginning to end without any bullsh*t filler songs to be found.
My favorite tracks are UFO, Porno mouth, Elmo, I won't stay, Numb and Coward (in that order). Mystery song is sexy, something to strip to lol*
I saw Holly at Commodore two years ago and she is every bit as good live. Check her out if you have the chance. I recommend this cd, it's the best.
