We gave it an A

Singer-songwriter Suzanne Rhatigan unleashes To Hell With Love, a blues-based rock record that homes in on just how hard it sometimes is to be a woman. Rhatigan has absolutely no use for self-pity, though — she’s as tough on herself (”Sell me a dummy cos I’m always buying” ) as she is on the lousy lummoxes who don’t love her right (”When you grow up, then look me up”). Plenty of female singer-songwriters wave their banners proclaiming ”I am woman, hear me roar,” but Rhatigan doesn’t just drown them out with a bluesy growl of her engine, she leaves them behind to eat her dust.
