Sleater-Kinney's musical manifesto is a wake-up call to not only the old boy network, but to young women who find themselves increasingly at odds with it. Helmed by Corin Tucker (Heaven's To Betsy) and Carrie Brownstein (Excuse 17), this trio is not only furious and formidable, but genuinely significant. On a musical landscape populated by open sewers like The 7 Mary Bush Pilots Idiot-Grunge Revival or Hootie's Home for the Terminally Bland and Sensitive, Tucker's spine-shivering voice shrieking "I wanna be your Joey Ramone / Pictures of me on your bedroom door" cracks through the narcotic haze of mediocrity like a rat tail on a bare bottom. When she declares herself "The Queen of Rock & Roll," I'm inclined to smile and think "If only." Cultural importance aside, this rocks. Their eerily dead-on Sonic Youth snippet in "I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone" had me checking the credits for a Kim Gordon cameo, while "Little Mouth," "Stay Where You Are" and the incendiary title track are some of the most raging chunks of punk found around these parts since Greg Sage shook the rain off his rubbers. More than recommended: required. --John Chandler

2. Hubcap (I love this song. They did a really good job on they're high notes.).
3. Little Mouth (Corin is just screaming in this song.).
4. Anonymous (A very fun song. Nothing you wanna hear before you go to bed.).
5. Stay Where You Are (An nice song if you wanna hear all three of them sing.).
6. Good Things (I really like this song "It's A Dumb Song, But I'll Right It Anyway".).
7. I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone (They screamed a lot in this one too "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah".).
8. Taking Me Home (This song is a very fun song.).
9. Taste Test (I like the really light voice"Where are you now?".).
10. My Stuff (I can never hear what they're saying "Leave me without a god without belief without a cause
without a path that I should take
without a choice that I should make
such an easy thought and now I had it but I lost it
I guess I need your help and now I
guess I need your help and now I" .).
11. I'm Not Waiting (This song is Okay. Not they're best, but who cares?).
12. Heart Attack (A really light song. Very nice sounding.).
Altogether it's an Okay album.
IT IS BETTER THAN GOOD! It's EXCELLENT! From the stanza of "Call The Docotor" ... "they want to socialize you....dignify, analyze, terrorize you" I was hooked! Who wouldn't be? SK personifies all the emotions of any under-dog of society (or so they make us out to be), no matter who they may be (female, abused, ethinic, etc.) and screams, plays and ROCKS them into a complete fruition of being. This band should have gotten a Grammy for this fine example of punk rock agression mixed with sympathetic/empathetic emotion.
Then I heard "Good Things" and my world transformed. I instantly related the song to my current state and found the strength to move on to something more productive and healthy besides a messed up (I'm being quite tame) realtionship. "Getting better, worse, I cannot tell..." says it all. "Why do good things never want to stay?", well, I guess I will never know the answer to that, but thanks to SK I know that even the bad has an alternate side that will sometimes purge itself out. "This time I wiil be alright, this time I will be ok..." are words that I will take with me to my grave.
This band was able to transcend pure enlightment to me in the course of a CD....do I need to say more? Did I mention the other songs? I don't even need too.
Just buy it! It's well worth it!

My introduction to SK came at a time when I was invovled in a BAD relationship and I happened to hear some talk about how good it was, so I decided to check it out. Read morePublished on July 28 2003 by Shon Downing
This album is on the whole just OK. I don't think that the song quality is even throughout the album. Read morePublished on July 17 2003 by Sannah Zay

First allow me to say, this is a CD I owned many years ago. I didn't buy it when it came out, but was introduced to it a few years after it was recorded. Read morePublished on Jan. 4 2003 by Shon E. Downing
Before I begin, I should probably say that I'm not one of those annoying purists who cries "sell out!" at the first sign of a band developing sophistication or maturity. Read morePublished on Nov. 23 2002
Which album is better? This one or "Dig Me Out"? Who cares - just get them both, now. Think music in the 2nd half of the 90s sucked? Read morePublished on Jan. 4 2002
