  • Summary: A former member of Billy Childish's band Thee Headcoatees, Holly Golightly has gained a wider following in recent months due to her guest appearance on The White Stripes' 'Elephant.' New devotees will have a lot to discover: this is her ninth solo album since 1995.

  1. A sexy record, of a kind that no one else seems to be making anymore.
  2. It has an appealing gentle earnestness that most pop music lost somewhere in the past few decades.
  3. A set of appealing folk-rock ditties shot through with girl-group sweetness and a soupcon of punky attitude. [1 Aug 2003, p.79]
  4. It's Golightly's most genuine, dark-struttin' My Generation-type record to date.
  5. Sound[s] authentically retro without ever veering into Lenny Kravitz territory. [Sep 2003, p.101]
  6. 80
    Golightly brings out rock'n'roll's original transgressive spirit. [#60, p.98]
  7. Her torchy virtuosity on her medium-small vocal instrument, applied to country-bluesy-Stonesy ballads and driving midtempo rave-ups, transforms what could have been a dull exercise in rote revivalism into sweet soul music.
