Not gonna lie, the first time I heard that “Gossip Girl” actress Taylor Momsen was going to front a hard rock band, I may have rolled my eyes. I totally take that gesture back, as I feel she has more than proven herself as a rock vocalist, and The Pretty Reckless has been kicking some serious tail on the rock radio scene these past few years. Yep- I was totally wrong. And their latest release “Only Love Can Save Me Now” keeps the badassery coming.
Love the opening riffs, and Taylors vocals are perfect for the genre. I’ve always dug strong Alto voices (maybe because I’m an Alto?) and Taylor rocks it. And as always, I’m happy to see more women in Mainstream Rock. People complain about the lack of women in Country… but we need more women on the Rock scene as well. Women like Taylor, Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale are blazing that much needed trail!
