    Well, the latest stuff was enough to tour on and get the 90’s alterna-fringe dwellers out to see her in the ‘burbs of Brisbane, so the songs were great at something, even if for legacy purposes only.

    Anyway, with ‘Live Through This’ sounding like L7 playing ‘New Miserable Experience’, arguably CL’s last “great” song was actually a Beat Happening cover. Don’t get me wrong, L7 and Gin Blossoms (who, although released NME 12 months after Nevermind, hold a superior album to Nevermind in their name) are great as stand alone entities, but CL should have listened to her own voice when she sang “Don’t Mix The Colors”.

    Faux angst rating ‘Celebrity Skin’ = 2/10.

    Faux angst rating ‘Live Through This’ = 6/10.

    Obviously ‘Celebrity Skin’, given the times and with BC’s involvement was more authentic and the rocker compared with ‘Live Through This’, which, like ‘Nevermind’, was a symptom of the alterna-rock swindle, rather than the condition.

    Good album for cleaning the old flat to on Boundary Street back in the day though. Here’s to 21 years!

    Very interesting selections. Have a few favorites in here. But out of curiosity would you say that you’re still recovering from your previous relationship with her? If I were in your shoes (don’t know how you do it), I’d just see her as a hack opposed to an artist of any kind.
