If you like Throwing may or may not like this! It's quite mellow.

One of my favorites

"I found this album used at a shop around town when I was 16. I had heard the song "Your Ghost" and liked it quite a bit. So, I got it, listened to "Your Ghost" and never got much further than that. I just thought "Eh." That was that. Then, I was weeding out some of my CDs a few months later to find some to sell so I could make some cash. I was going through, listening to everything I hadn't listened to in months. I put this in and this time it just CLICKED. Every song just seemed so full of emotion, even without paying attention to the lyrics. I put the disc on repeat for the rest of the day. I still listen to it regularly.

Hersh's voice is like a hoarse whisper at times, at others, it's a pain-filled wail. It's hard to describe it. Everything is so simple and it's got some of the best lyrics I've ever seen. Personal favorites include "A Loon" and "Houdini Blues." I highly recommend this album to everyone. Just don't wait a few months to listen to it like I did. Listen to it on repeat and let it sink in."
Her soft , sensual side

"It never really mattered how loud the likes of L7 and Babes In Toyland could scream . All it would take from Kristin Hersh is to flash her eyes and deliver a line like " i think i need some poison / to keep me tame ..." and they would ( and should ) all start running to hide themselfs . Her band's music had always been a strange , intense rock experience you just had to try again .

Considering all that the early 90's must had been a really really happy period for her . She just looks so beautiful and calm wandering in toyrooms and chatting with ballerinas in the video-clip of " Beestung " , the second cd-single of her debut as a solo artist " Hips And Makers " . The release of the album itself was a tender dark folk suprise . Although some tracks feel more like well-crafted ideas going nowhere , when Hersh finds her focus like on " Me And My Charms " and " Your Ghost " she truly touches greatness . The lyrics are poetic ( " when i kiss the angel / i have a taste of you " ) and her perfomances as haunting as always . A great piece of music indeed ."
