Product Description

Amazon.ca

With their two-guitar interplay and scrappy rock-goddess assault, Olympia, Washington, gave us the highly touted Sleater-Kinney who created something nearly impossible in 1997: a truly dynamic and vital punk album. Moreover, they're one of the only bands going that can dip into completely non-ironic, celebratory rock convincingly. Dig Me Out marks the point where the trio graduates from being a riot grrl band to simply being among the best rock groups around. --Roni Sarig

5.0 out of 5 stars all the drama that you crave June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sleater-Kinney's Dig Me Out is not only one of the finest records of the 1990's, it's a pivotal cross-section of 90's music - spitfire women striking independence on one end, vulnerable earthy types pow-wowing on the other. It may be a masterful sonic assault of punk fury, but it's punk fury mixed with intimacy and fragility. When Corin Tucker wails in the title track to dig her, "out of my body, out of my skin," you feel wounded alright, but it's in the humanity of such a line and the honesty of its production. The songs don't let down from there - the sad love-triangle crackdown of "One More Hour," the fury of "Words and Guitar," the sexiness of "Dance Song '97." This is the moment that a very good band became a great one with the capacity to topple over rock's foundation by aiming for its heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars just adding to what's already said June 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
A fantastic album from Sleater-Kinney, there's really nothing I can say that hasn't already been covered in the 60 some reviews of this album. I really wanted to share some trivia... the cover to this album is an homage to the Kinks, whose album The Kink Kontroversy the album design copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riot Grrrl May 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
every song on this album puts a feeling in my stomach. it reminds me of my first three years of college when i was discovering that there was so much great music out there, but smetimes you have to dig it out. they wear their emotions on their sleevs and are brutaly honest. corin tucker shredds her voice, and while some don't seem to like it, i think it's one of the most distinctive voices in the past 15 years. loud, yet vulnerable. i've seen them live twice here in chapel-hill, and they blew the roof off the place. this music reminds me of the freedom bands should have to TRULY express themselves. this is the one to start with, then move on to the fantastic "call the doctor".

5.0 out of 5 stars They've Discovered the Formula May 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
In this album, Sleater-Kinney first express the formula which they have since riffed on and perfected like an archetypal dirge, a combination of pre-lingual vocalizations that epitomize music at its expressive apex. For labellers, DMO effectively marks the band's transition from their lo fi, riot grrl roots into a post-punk fusion of savvy, artistically sound production, intellectually developed and wisened lyrics, and truly talented instrumentation that harnesses the raw power that they always had like never before. If you are coming at this after having heard their earlier work, you will appreciate the more grown-up expressions of feminine longing, rage, and sorrow. If you are coming at this after having been exposed to post-DMO work, you will appreciate the conglomeration of the catchy tongue-in-cheek, the angrily raw emotive, and the dead-on expression of the bittersweet experiences of relationships, politics, and life in general. Love it for the progress they made in this album, love it for the kickbutt rock outfit it serves as the cornerstone of, love it for the way you sing along with "Little Babies," but you're gonna love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, essential music Dec 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There's a lot of crappy music around that people mindlessly digest, not knowing that a whole world of amazing music exists. This album is a part of that world. It's slightly less raw than Call the Doctor in terms of instrumentation, but the essential elements of Corin's yowl and guitar and vocal interplay remain just as effective as before.
The first threee songs on this album are instant classics. 'Dig Me Out' is infectious. Right from the get-go, you know you're onto a good thing when Carrie Brownstein sets in with an incredibly catchy guitar riff, followed by Janet Weiss' solid drumming and Corin Tucker's complementary guitar. After the opener comes One More Hour. It's a sad song dealing with Carrie and Corin's breakup, and the chorus introduces particularly effective vocal interplay between the two, with Corin wailing 'I needed it' and Carrie responding 'I know, it's so hard for you to let it go.'
Then we get Turn It On. Ohh yes. This is an amazing song, a S-K classic. Corin's vocals are particularly delicious. There a section where she descends into quietly muttering 'turn it on' and you know she's got something in store for you. Indeed, moments later she's in full lioness roar mode, and you're hooked.
Other highlights of the album include Things You Say, (one of my fave s-k songs ever) Dance Song 97, the sarcastic yet delightful Little Babies, the wild Words and Guitar and the girl-crush song Buy Her Candy.
Dig Me Out is an exploration of frustrated desire from the woman's point of view. There's anger, confusion - for adolescents it seems essential if only to know that you are not the only one feeling inadequate and longing for something...although it's not a one-dimensional album as some of the earlier S-K songs were. This album, and this band, has definitely changed me, as it most likely will you if you get this CD. Once you get used to Corin's voice, you'll wonder how you ever put up with all those other half-hearted singers.
Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than your favorite underwear! Dec 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this album, (I own the vinyl) is comparable to taking a seldgehammer to a shoebox full of newborn kittens! I KID YOU NOT!
This album is guarnteed to be your best friend on any lonely night spent home vomitting, lying on your back, staring at the bathroom ceiling; "I wonder when that light went out?"
I would compare this to pretty much any other riot-grrl band, but not nearly as awful. In fact, these girls are ACTUALLY pretty damn good; this is probabaly due to two of them looking like boys.
