Product Description

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars S-K Firing On All Cylinders May 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
So what to call the white-hot blast of "Dig Me Out" ? The greatest girl-rock album of the 90s? The greatest punk record sinse "Zen Arcade"? The best reason to still have faith in indie rock at a time in popular music (97) when all the innovation and vitality seemed to be coming from the UK club scene? Well, sure, I'll buy those, as long as you throw in calling it S-K's best record up to that point, which is actually saying alot more than those rather suspect statements. Here the band is firing on all cylinders, hurtling forward towards someplace where thier disparate approaches and clashing voices can exist together and make waves on thier own terms. Each song sounds like they've come to some earth-shattering realization, and are fairly bursting to get it out. The title cut is a primal scream for release from any and all boundries; "One More Hour" is as poignant and heart-breaking as any song has a right to be; "Turn It On" is the sound of hormones clashing with the logical mind, and reaching a draw; "Words and Guitar," and "It's Enough," timeless love letters to rock n' roll. "Little Babies" is a brilliant rumination on the maternal role played by the band which both celebrates a laments it with delicious wit. The last four songs are on a par with side three of "Zen Arcade" (for those fortunate souls who've heard Husker Du's masterpiece the way it should be heard-on VINYL) "Buy Her Candy" a breathtaking crush poem; "Things You Say" simply one of THE perfect rock songs ever; "Dance Song 97" as catchy as the flu or the B-52s in thier prime; and "Jenny" which closes the album on an austere, subtly devastating note.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energetic, emotional, sexy...fantasmo! Oct. 9 2002
Format:Audio CD
Sleater-Kinney is a band that had enjoyed quite a bit of hype in the mainstream media as a result I was somewhat hesitant to give them a chance. I am a fan of bands associated with the sadly and inexplicably overexposed riot girl movement and since Le Tigre seemed to endorse them, against my own better judgment, I bought this album.
And boy, am I glad I did. Time Magazine actually got it right! These are intelligent, sexy, talented women who have put together an album that is not quite as overtly political as Le Tigre or Bikini Kill, but nevertheless, they make their general disposition quite clear. They manage to turn love songs into feminist manifestos that are quite a bit more poetic and musical than something you might expect from bands that more clearly advertise their feminism.
This album's best songs are the more personal, "One More Hour" is a good example, where Corin Tucker can truly show off her vocal range, a talent usually wasted on more diluted genres. "Turn It On" is probably the best song lyrically, almost indescribable in content; but the tone is clearly one of deep anger and resentment...at some person...or thing? I don't know, and it doesn't matter.
And that is truly the strength of this album...its emotion. I highly recommend it!
