The Pretty Reckless - Just Tonight

Fuck it, I'm not ashamed to admit I love The Pretty Reckless. All the hype that goes with it, all the posturing and hipster bullshit you can keep - but the music is fantastic. From debut album 'Light Me Up', Just Tonight is a ballad with bite. Taylor Momsen's voice is incredibly powerful, with a smoky quality which only amps up the emotion, and the alternately wailing and thrashing guitar melody really showcases it. Lyrically it's a realist love song, with love as a form of superficial comfort (Just tonight/I won't leave/And I'll lie and you'll believe), but the execution and polish is that of a band much more experienced. Just Tonight is the perfect example of why you should forget the pasts and the press, and concentrate on what matters - good music.
