The 1980’s were filled with Chrissie Hyde’s voice. Her band, The Pretenders, provided the soundtrack to many a Gen Xer’s adolescence. Their latest release, Hate For Sale, brings me back to those times even though it’s brand new music. It’s akin to a warm hug from a family member.
All the classic Pretenders tropes are there...love, anger, passion...with, perhaps, the wisdom of age. It’s an album any generation will adore instantly. Here are a couple of tracks.
