When the original Veruca Salt team of Louise Post and Nina Gordon split in 1998, Gordon pursued a solo career, but Post kept the name and put together an entirely new band. The title of the revamped group's first release, RESOLVER, isn't just a continuation of VS's string of Beatles jokes. This is Post's angriest record, crammed with references to personal betrayals, and an opportunity for her to work out things she's still sore about -- can't fight the seether, so to speak. Judging from the lyrics, she's got some fairly major issues involving Gordon, as well as Dave Grohl (her former partner in saying "no comment" to the press) and a handful of other alt rock superstars. RESOLVER is mostly an exercise in sounding delicate and melodic just long enough to lure unsuspecting listeners within range, and then hitting the distortion pedals and pouncing. The new Veruca Salt is a mighty riff-beast when it draws itself up to full size, especially on rockers like "Officially Dead." Producer Brian Liesegang has been working with Filter and Trent Reznor, and he cranks up the low-end wallop and blows up Post's hisses and whispers to savage volume.

Sit back with an ice cold brew, turn up your stereo and let out your stress and anger. This album will rock your blues away. Nina Gordon is a sell out-but Louise still knows how to rock all the boys and girls.
After the bands Break up Louise Post along with the new members of Veruca Salt have cerntainly made a come back with 'Resolver'. The lyrics come from the expiriences, struggles and heart of Louise Post. This band can definatly hold their own, live or in the studio. If you liked 'Eight arms to hold you'-'Resolver' will take you away. I highly recommend this album to everyone. Peace Saltine Fans!:)
Louise Post shows that it's possible to lose and still gain. She recruited 3 new stellar band members, and has set out to remind the world that there's still good rock music out there. The lyrics will break your heart, and the riffs will kick your butt. If you're a rock fan, check out ''Born Entertainer,'' ''Officially Dead,'' and ''Hellraiser.'' Indulge your softer side with sweet melodies like ''Disconnected'' and ''Imperfectly.'' You cannot lose buying this album. Also, catch them live. Their performance is stellar.
