Glad to see others thought so - i'd hate to have an isolated opinion on something.
Get up was the song i heard on CMJ's collection that sold me on SK. I think the whole album is priceless - $12 at the concert was therefore a good deal.
They're very tight live - play their asses off.

this band has a cute singer, Corina with chipmunk cheeks. She sounds like Belinda Carlile. I just want to pinch her cheeks!!

By the release of "The Hot Rock" in '99, it was clear that Sleater-Kinney had arrived at an unprescedentedly intricate sonic asthetic; contrapuntal and angular, yet ferociously contained, thier attack lies in the constant tension between the band's two stellar leads--listening to Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker sing thier often conflicting lines simultaneously is to be privy to a fascinating, constantly evolving relationship, one where the urge to support and celebrate one another is continually challenged by a dynamic in which each little bit of emotional real estate that's offered as a gesture of compromise is burdened with world-historic import. Of coarse, all this staggeringly cerebral conceptual metaphor slinging would be dull as door knobs if it weren't for the band's talent as musicians and songwriters; that S-K can cram enough of this stuff to fullfill several senior thesis requirements into music so gloriously engaging, kinetic, and just plain rockin' is a testament to just how important this band is. Few have operated so proficiently on simultaneous levels of chops, content and execution. As a guitarist, Carrie Brownstein has more chops than Paul Bunyon, creating the most arresting, original guitar sound since Peter Buck or The Edge (or Pete Townshend, or Tom Verlain--pick one, the point is, the woman's GOOD) Rarely playing anything that resembles a traditional riff, her arsenal of quicksilver leads and choppy, percussive arpeggios give S-K's music and incredibly elastic, unpredictable quality the makes their records among the most listenable in rock. Corin Tucker, on the other hand, is mostly voice, but what a voice it is--a riveting, ennervating force of nature that gives visceral physicality and unforgettable conviction to her lyrics. She may have the best set of pipes in rock.Read more ›

The songs that led me to buy this album were "Memorize Your Lines", "A Quarter to Three", and "Burn, Don't Freeze". When I heard the other songs I found that the album gets better with every listen. Two songs that really stand out after repeated listens are "Get Up" and "The Size of our Love". The interaction between the two guitars and the two lead vocals is really unique. This is what real rock is supposed to be, not the garbage MTV feeds you. Not signing to a major label was the best decision they could have made as a group. A major label would have turned them into something totally different. People that say rock is dead just aren't looking hard enough. Give this album a chance, you will not be disappointed.

I have to admit, I understand why some people thought Sleater-Kinney sold out during the Hot Rock period - suddenly, they were more preened, less political, less angry. Still, that's a superficial judgment in many ways, and while I can't pretend that The Hot Rock will ever mean as much to me as Call the Doctor, Sleater-Kinney still have much to offer the listener - they're just selling different wares. This is a more opaque, idiosyncratic record, more inward-looking, less immediate. It's also more self-consciously arty and experimental than the previous records, which were mainly in the spirit of that old "3-chords and the Truth" punk rock ideal. The results of this metamorphosis are mixed - "Get Up" has to be one of the strangest and the most transcendent songs the band has written, with lyrics that teeter precariously toward pretension and earth-mother embarrassment, but somehow, just somehow, come across as pure beauty within the context of the music. Songs like "The Hot Rock" and "Memorize Your Lines" have a jangly, unusual charm that grows on you with each listen. "Start Together", "The End of You" and "One Song For You" are all irresistible rock songs. "The Size of Our Love" scores high in the lyrical originality stakes, although I oscillate between loving Carrie's girly coo and finding it slightly irritating.
But, but, but...why can't I embrace this as much as earlier albums? I suppose it's because I never really wanted Sleater-Kinney to make an indie art record - I didn't care about their poetic ramblings, or their sonic experiments. From them, I just wanted rawness and euphoria. But, hey, even if indie quirkiness is a dime a dozen, Sleater-Kinney's brand has its virtues, even if, for me, there's nothing on this album to rival the excoriating power of a song like "Little Mouth" or the bliss of "Turn It On."

A long time fan of Sleater Kinney, I deem this to be the band's finest album. Though I often struggle between which album I like better, this one or Dig Me Out, I think this album is more multi-purpose. It rocks really hard, AND the way the tracks fit together give it a really dynamic purpose. This album is one of those albums you dont get sick of. ...I can't pin point one song I like the most because each song really gives way to the next one on the album. This album proves that Sleater Kinney still had it post Dig Me Out and had it long before One Beat was released.
