Hunkpapa - 1990

On the group's third full-length album and their second for Sire, Throwing Muses display a rare creative lull. Many of the songs are just not as powerful as their prior material, but the album is not a total loss. The wild, desolate "Bea" and explosive "Mania" are two of Hersh's finest songs, and Donelly's "Dragonhead" and "Angel" show her growing prowess as a songwriter.
