Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Though peers such as Hole's Courtney Love and Babes in Toyland's Kat Bjelland became more famous, no riot grrrl screamed with as much emotional force as Kathleen Hanna. Though it's frequently difficult to hear what she's saying, especially above the glorious din of Billy Karren's fierce guitar, Hanna declares herself a "self-fulfilling porno queen" on "Sugar," and threatens to "scratch out your eyes" with her "long red nails" in "Lil Red." The quartet's relentless hardcore is straight from the Dead Kennedys school, which means it's tough to take in large doses when you're in a reflective mood, but 1993's Pussy Whipped is one of the great punk albums of the '90s. --Steve Knopper

No, it's not long, but neither is the 37 minute CIRCLE JERKS Group Sex album and that's stood the test of time as a definitive hardcore punk rock album. BIKINI KILL was the best riot grrl band ever and this is their best album. The CD version of their first two albums is their second best, although the Singles album is also great. Reject All American only has like 2 great songs, the rest is a notch below their usual high quality.
Are these 3 gals and a guy on drums angry? Their vocalist is. And the music is as far removed from her LE TIRGE band sound as is possible. Not only do the vocals shred into the mysogony that continues to exist in Western culture but the music backs it up with well written songs and I get the feeling it's two gals on guitar and bass. It's just got that sorta RAINCOATS/KLEENEX/BUSH TETRAS sorta feel to it, but harder edged. Every song zings on this album.

the riot grrrl scene which emerged in the early 90's produced a lot of great music, as well as influencing later bands. as far as im concerned this is one of the best albums of the era, its strong , brutal and stomach churningly pwerful. the overall sound is rough and D.I.Y but it works so well within the context of the album. tracks like rebel girl and blood one characterise the album, wheras the album charaterises the scene in general.

I totally love Bikini Kill and the music of Kathleen Hannah (also as Julie Ruin and with Le Tigre). I feel this album lacks the spontaneity, primal passion and very effective honesty of The CD Version of the First Two Records (also called Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah for no apparent reason), without having the added melodiousness and wit of BK's and KH's later work (The Singles, Reject All American). This album is rather rock and roll, which clearly appeals to some listeners. It feels slightly phony and lacking in ideas to me. I prefer the punkier CD Version of ... and the artier, later stuff. ... After further listening, I take it back.

pussywhipped 5 Mar. 2002
By "the_riot_dyke" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While all of the Bikini Kill CDs are masterpieces, none explore the female psyche so delicately as "Pussywhipped." The first two records were young and snotty and had a message, "The Singles" was tight and effective, and "Reject All American" carried feminism to a more melodic yet still highly emotional place. It is "Pussywhipped" that is the darkest, the rawest, the scariest place in Kathleen Hanna's mind. While it shares all the clever lyrics of the other albums, songs like "Sugar," "Lil Red" and most of all "Star-Bellied Boy" take "Suck My Left One" to a more personal place. This is not to say that "Pussywhipped" is no fun, because it is. Kathleen Hanna is so animated despite her pain that it is difficult not to enjoy Bikini Kill's music even if yr appreciation is based solely on the sound of her voice, and the girl friendship anthem "For Tammy Rae" is so sweet that it almost seems to erase the painful memories dredged up by earlier songs. And while little known, "Starfish" is one of the most eloquently understated anthems of survival ever written. Buy it right now.

Punk is Not Dead 15 Aug. 2000
By Hapworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off, as a male reviewer I have to admit that I don't even feel comfortable sharing my opinion. One of the things that makes Bikini Kill such a brilliant band is the fact that they probably wouldn't even trust my opinions (darned right they shouldn't! ). Yes, as a male I can offer praise and encourage people to buy this fine record, but Kathleen Hanna and company would almost certainly dismiss my praise completely or at least highly distrust it. Like other female rockers who followed in Bikini Kill's wake, Hanna sings openly and honestly about the world she lives in. She knows, for instance, that no matter how much critical acclaim she receives from male reviewers, males simply cannot divorce female artistry from female sexuality. Every male (and those who claim otherwise are lying, myself included) may value and truly admire what Bikini Kill is contributing, but at the same time every male is also thinking, "Boy, that Hanna sure is angry, but she's also kinda cute." Hanna is no dupe, though, and not only is she hyperaware of this hypocrasy (as was Liz Phair on her record Exile in Guyville) she actually sings about it and seeks to expose it.
From the outset, then, P-whipped announces that this album is not for the tepid or the weak. Yes, this is hardcore punk, but it's punk like we've never heard before. Whipped challenges its listeners (particularly its male listeners) to handle the screeching vocals, the guttural growls, the raw lyrics. Whipped is the musical equivalent of feminist "ecriture" (I knew my French would come in handy someday). The vocals serve as a good example. Hanna will gurgle and bellow (sounds that are typically UN-feminine); she'll screech at the top of her lungs like an elementary school girl on the playground (a sound that, like nails on a chalkboard, makes males wince in annoyance--which, of course, is the point); she'll sing coyly in mock, sex-doll "I-know-what-you-want-baby" come-ons; and when all else fails, she simply sings as if her life depended upon it.
The songs are also varied and top-notch. Rebel Girl is every bit an anthem as Anarchy in the U.K. Star-Bellied Boy is chilling in its drawing upon the innocence of youth (Star-Bellied, of course, is a reference to Dr. Seuss) to make a statemnt about male victimization of women. Finally, in true punk form, the entire album clocks in at around thirty minutes, ending with the song For Tammy Rae, a song which proves that Bikini Kill can be as tuneful as they wanna be.

Wow 10 May 2003
By Paul H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Brutal doesn't even begin to describe the impact of Pussy-Whipped. The waves of distortion, screaming, and non-stop feedback never let up until the final song "For Tammy Rae," a slow, subdued, but no less stunning song. This is one of those albums that made punk rock vital again. It's no b.s.: loud, raw, three-chords, angry, and meaningful. The production is much improved from their previous singles, and it creates an assualt on the senses; think Black Flag's Damaged times ten (that's not to say that this sounds like Black Flag). It's a shame Bikini Kill are no more, and I would have loved to have seen them live. But Pussy-Whipped is an excellent document of this great band. Try "Blood One," "Rebel Girl," and "Tell Me So."

bikini kill get naked 15 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record is not an entry to Bikini Kill for those who find abrasiveness a problem... the bass is distorted, the vocals are raw, gutsy, wonderful, and vulgar. In the best possible way of course. It does have a peculiar angular poppiness to it but it creeps up behind you.
For me it is their finest hour, and one of their earliest. Nothing sends the blood pumping through my veins as much as the sheer volatile energy on this album. And those human screams do cause the flow of genuine adrenalin... I swear it. I jog to this album sometimes, because it makes me run like a maniac. And i'm aware of the perversity of getting fit to bikini kill. ;) but it is proof of the inherent energy here...its worth listening in.

Essential to your RIOT GRRL collection 5 Jun. 2000
By "lexita" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Forget Courtney Love, this is the real RIOT GRRL stuff. With insane, brutal, catty, and poetic lyrics, this is a must own album for any riot grrl or X girl. This is my favorite Bikini Kill CD and Sugar is simply the greatest song in the universe. Its not for everyone, and the message certainly surpasses the music, but you'll be singing/screaming from track 1. Own it.
