Belying the fact that J.G. Thirlwell
was long pigeonholed as an industrial artist, Hole
veers from downtown blues to surf-raunch to paranoid industrial dance and back with few pauses. Listeners expecting to catch their breath at some point may be a bit startled, since Hole
never lets up and resists easy classification. Highlights include "Clothes Hoist" and "I'll Meet You in Poland Baby."
