The Good Things

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Holly Golightly's solo debut is quite a departure from her usual gig as a member of the garage-rocking, Billy Childish-sponsored group Thee Headcoatees.

The title track is a classic "you hurt me, you suck" type of song; in fact, most of the songs here are. It is a real broken-hearted breakup record. And Golightly has the good sense to cover a Wreckless Eric song, "Comedy Time." Good Things is a strong debut that definitely points the way to good things to come from Holly Golightly.
