NME says: “The band’s first album since drummer Janet Weiss’ departure draws
on the gloom of their turn-of-the-millennium sound, but can be a little on-the-nose…
Time and time again, Sleater-Kinney perform this magical sleight-of-hand that few
artists can manage – they find words for humanity in all of its flawed chaos. Digging
out the meaning within each of their records to date feels like solving a satisfying puzzle…
What could’ve been a savvy dissection of seeking out connection during a surreal year
instead see them go straight down the line.” Full review here. Score: 3/5.
Turn Up the Volume: From then to now. From riot grrrls to riot women.
From sharp-edged punk-up frenzy to funk-fueled grooves. From growing
up with a knife between the teeth to growing older with wayward rock
maturity. I can live with that.
