Seemingly held together by self-belief alone, Love 's vocals are almost always on a musical precipice. Just when she threatens to descent into discord she manages to hold the note, and reminds you that this is what she does, and no one does it better. She is Courtney Love after all. Courtney Love : America's Sweetheart Virgin Records Not the tottering train wreck you might have imagined, but an airbrushed rock goddess, with angel wings curled behind her and a Stratocaster in her lap.
And it does so with racket and melodrama, in luridly saturated HD. A swirling and tender sweep of gorgeous relief and resignation.
