Restraint is clearly not in Ms. Young’s vocabulary. Backed up by Dave Grohl
on drums and longtime David Bowie
producer Tony Visconti
on bass and guitar, and obviously influenced by tour mentor Morrissey
, “Pearl of a Girl” is wildly energetic and huge fun to listen to. “How are you so calm when it’s so severe?” Young wails. Listening to this, I have no idea.
