Details

[Edit]

Throwing Muses embodied one style of college rock in the late '80s and early '90s: literate, dissonant, adventurous, and always battling within itself to discover its identity. Here, frontwoman Kristin Hersh revisits that territory and discovers she’s still the same embattled psychic with a sense of humor. She’s always claimed that the Muses' songs came through her and left her with suicidal urges, always with a genuine workingwoman’s laugh. Those contemplating the 32 songs included here may start to worry about Hersh, but the devil should certainly give her a discount, considering many songs are brief and only rarely venture past the three-minute mark. Songs are divided into many parts and separated to make a rock opera of sorts, with reoccurring motifs. Beauty's often fleeting, often a tease; when “Lazy Eye” speaks in tongues near its close, it feels as if Hersh has struck a nerve, the third rail of her songwriting urge. With it, she shows rewards fans willing to go the extra mile to unravel her mysteries.
