St. Vincent molested this band beyond recovery.
Edit: Guess who was kind of right?
The Universe: 39,520
Post-release edit: In the twist to end all twists, they actually molested themselves.
Sorry Annie, you're not to blame. At least not entirely.

I really love how ambitious the songwriting and instrumentation on this album is. I wish the bass was a little more pronounced in the mix, but otherwise this shit is great.

Where to start with this one? Not a disaster as people are hyping it out to be but boy oh boy, a massively new direction. A band with one of the finest indie rock/riot grrrl resumes known for producing some of the best guitar work in the genre replaces a lot of that with generic electronics and synth. The production is the biggest issue as the mix often feels out of sorts drowning out the vocals and live instruments in favor of quirky synth. Change in direction can lead to magic but this change sees Sleater-Kinney losing a lot of their signature sound and sounding a lot more generic in the process. Are they possibly trying to appeal to wider audiences with the synth driven songs and poppier sound? Who knows. All of that being said Corin and Carrie deliver nice, energetic vocals and most of the songs are good outside of RUINS and Bad Dance; its just that none of them are truly great and differentiate themselves from other indie rock/pop of today.

I don't think this is half as "glossy" or "over-produced" as people are making it out to be. It isn't as good as their last album, but still solid and with some peaks ("Reach Out" sticks out to me).

It's ok. The St. Vincent's prod is not incredible, as the noise passages could be rawer and more abrasive. You can still get a lil bit of da pop.

It's a solid album, not anywhere close to their best. Put your knives away.

Well... this is quite the punch to the gut. What the fuck Sleater-Kinney?
