Auf Der Maur  
By Adrian Alfonso

Finally a kick ass album. Melissa Auf Der Maur the bassist of Hole and late-Smashing Pumpkins fame has released a solo album. On this album, she should be recognized as an artist worthy of our attention. Her latest album SURPRISINGLY titled Auf Der Maur also has a lot of cameo appearances by Jeordie White (Twiggy Ramirez of Marilyn Manson fame), James Iha, (formerly Smashing Pumpkins now A Perfect Circle), Paz Lenchantin ( of Big Milk and formerly A Perfect
Circle), even Pazs' sister makes an appearance.

The first song on the album "Lightning is my Girl" is up there as one of the best tracks. "Meet me on the corner of your true blue skies" Der Maur sings on. It is a beautiful and "rock fist" raising song that will keep that song on repeat in your stereo for weeks to come. Then there is the second song and first single off the album, "Followed the Waves",  listen to the chorus (even on the video Melissa shows you how to bang your head to the song). This song kicks rocks I can
definitely hear this somewhere in a bar jukebox in Jersey. 

The third song "Real a Lie" has one of the catchiest choruses you'll hear all year. On the forth song "Head Unbound" Melissa sounds a lot like PJ Harvey. 

Well that's pretty much it, he rest of the album really isn't that good. Serious. The first songs on the album kick a lot of ass but the rest is generic as hell. Until the hidden song kicks in. The song is sung is French and sounds beautiful. 

If you can find this album for around ten bucks, get it. This album was made completely for A Perfect Circle fans and Smashing Pumpkin fans.
