4.0 excellentderho | January 22nd 13

20 years after "Maquee Moon", Sleater-Kinney prove punk still has the power to move and inspire. The Tucker/Brownstein guitar battery out-funks and out-rocks more than a handful of other groups who had the privilege of a bassist. It's calculated but furious, like a meticulously planned bombing. It all feels like a crusade. Just get out of the way and watch. Tucker's vocals are utterly feral, that delicate tremolo serving as the album's ever thumping heart. Kim Gordon is probably the strongest presence here in terms of influence (see particularly "Heart Factory"), but the whole thing is inflected with a personal sheen. Couldn't be recreated. "Turn It On", "Little Babies", and "Not What You Want" serve as highlights, but come on, play the whole thing. You've earned it. 8.5/10

4.5 superbSpectrum | June 1st 08

Breathlessly energetic music combined with breathlessly howled vocals - a potent combination indeed, especially for all-girl power trio Sleater-Kinney. Right from the angular opening licks of the title track to the deep, ponderous closer, S-K pound it home in a display of raw, feminine power. "Little Babies", "Dance Song '97", and "Words and Guitar" rank amongst their catchiest ditties, while "Heart Factory" may be the coolest thing they've ever done. It's a very rounded and complete work, coming in shy of forty minutes and packing a great deal into thirteen (mostly) short tracks.
