Taylor Momsen formed The Pretty Reckless in 2009 after moving away from an acting career which featured roles in Gossip Girl and How The Grinch Stole Christmas – she is certainly a far cry from little Cindy Lou now. Momsen courts controversy these days with her surly rock chick attitude and provocative music.
Going To Hell is the third offering from The Pretty Reckless and it cements their style as hard rock with a darker twist, reminiscent of tour-mate Marilyn Manson.
The diverse tone hits a crescendo immediately with the title track reflecting the album’s theme of hell being all around us. A powerful and enjoyable effort. (LL)
