Hole  - Celebrity Skin mp3 album

Celebrity Skin is the third studio album by American alternative rock band Hole, released worldwide on September 8, 1998 on Geffen Records and one day later in the United States on DGC Records. It was the last album released by the band before their dissolution in 2002. Hole intended the record to diverge significantly from their previous noise and grunge-influenced sound as featured on Pretty on the Inside (1991) and Live Through This (1994).

Celebrity Skin is the tenth single by Hole, released on September 1, 1998 by Geffen Records. It is the debut single from their third studio album of the same name and is Hole’s most commercially successful single, being the only one to reach on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 126 on its list 150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years. Billy Corgan reportedly wrote the song’s main guitar riff.

Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York, NY. Recorded at Conway Studios, Los Angeles. Additional recording at Quad Studios NYC, Olympic Studios London, Record Plant, . Transfers at Right Track NYC. Mixed at South Beach Studios, Miami. Additional mixing at Image Recording . and Ocean Way Recording . Back cover: Ophelia (Paul Steck, 1895): Giraudon/Art Resource, New York.

Third album from Courtney Love & co originally released in 1998 featuring the title track, 'Awful' & 'Malibu'. When last we saw Courtney Love, she was performing on the silver screen and posing for Versace, a far cry from her formative days stumbling across stages wearing ripped thrift-store clothing. But Love's Hollywood transformation is just the latest in her crusade for adoration, whatever the environment. And Celebrity Skin is just the latest manifestation of that obsession.

Reviews about Hole - Celebrity Skin (10):
MOV releases always do justice on reissues and Celebrity Skin is not the exception. Brilliant mastering, quiet, dynamic and overall pleasant to listen. Either colored or black wax, get it. A+
Amazing album, glad to own it on record. Now we need "Live Through This" to be officially re-issued!
Any idea why it's a different track order than the original release? It sounds great so I'm not complaining, just seems odd. Is it a US vs. EU thing?
If you look at the track listing on the European vinyl release, the tracklisting is the same. It was likely resequenced for the vinyl release due to time limitations per side.
Yeah I'm not sure why it's marked as yellow when mine at least is definitely more orange??
Great sounding reissue, get it if you're a fan
Not sure if it has been re-mastered but it sounds really fresh!
Mastered at relatively low volume due to long length of album, but has a really nice, smooth crankable mastering, unlike the standard-issue 1998 CD, which is harsh and brickwalled. Good, quiet pressing, vinyl is really orange with yellow streaks. Hole's most commercial sounding album, but full of really good songs. Key tracks are "Malibu", "Boys On The Radio", "Awful", "Northern Star" and "Petals".
has it been remastered? :/
Sounds incredible. Glad I got a copy!
