Product Description

After its most prolonged absence from the recording studio, Sleater-Kinney has reloaded with a smouldering rock and roll record that rivals John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band and Nirvana’s In Utero in terms of unexpectedness. It is a 180-degree proclamation to the album which came before it. Producer David Fridmann (Weezer, Flaming Lips) coaxed the Portland, Oragan trio to retool its approach to making music. The results are startling and far and away the most collaborative, experimental and risky in the band’s seven-record career. Corin Tucker’s supreme guttural form is on display from the lead-off track "The Fox"--a would-be children’s tale overridden by crunching power chords and drummer Janet Weiss’s battering percussion. The Woods tugs on your ear musically and stabs at your heart lyrically on riff-wielding jaunts "Wilderness," "Modern Girl" and "Rollercoaster." The live-in-one-take, 11-minute blockbuster "Let’s Call It Love" unleashes Carrie Brownstein’s foray into guitar-solo psychedelia. Haven’t heard Sleater-Kinney yet? Try Dig Me Out and work your way forward. Already on board? Find a steady chair, feel your ears bleed and watch your speakers disintegrate. --Scott Holter

I bought this, my first Sleater-Kinney album, after reading the glowing reviews online and in various magazines. I was expecting something akin to Le Tigre....WRONG!
Imagine Sabbath and Zeppelin with more pop suss and you will nearly have it right. Opener "The Fox" goes down as one of the best album openers of the year - thuggish Bonham-esque drumrolls and a monster bass/guitar fuzz riff. It's followed by the poppier "Wilderness", which echoes various great 60's bands such as Jefferson Airplane. "Jumpers" is another cracker - full-on rock melded with some great harmonies.
My only apprehension about Sleater-Kinney from the reviews was Corin Tucker's vocals - they are a bit like Marmite, but I have to say I love them. Very like Grace Slick on "White Rabbits", but often very restrained and full of emotion. Janet Weiss (drums) and Carrie Brownstein (guitar) are fantastic throughout, culminating on the epic "Let's Call It Love" which starts out with a Zep-esque stomp and mutates after five minutes into a guitar freakout worthy of Mainliner or Acid Mothers Temple before a segue into final track "Night Light".
I have not listened to anything but this since it arrived, and I'm sure it will be firmly esconced in my Top Ten of 2005 list come December. Buy it!

Sleater-Kinney just keep getting better and better, and this, their seventh album is no exception. 'The Fox' starts proceedings with rumbling guitars, crashing drums and Corin Tucker's trademark howl delivering the most frightening fairytale you will ever hear: "on the day the duck was born, the fox was watching all along, he said 'land ho!'" And from then on, they never once falter. From the neat-beat garage scuzz of 'Whats Mine Is Yours' to the dance-a-long freak out of 'Jumpers'. From the defiant record industry-slaying 'Entertain' with its marching call-to-arms break in the middle to the eleven minute Led Zep rock out of 'Lets Call It Love' - Sleater-Kinney are firing on all cylinders. The guitar/vocal dual of Tucker and Carrie Brownstein and the thunderous drumming of extraordinare Janet Weiss have never sounded this potent. Sleater-Kinney have never fitted into scenes or genres and are virtually impossible to categorize, but on this record they have truly made some of the most thrilling, astounding, era-defining music of recent years. Why they aren't as big as R.E.M is a mystery to me. Never mind, I'll keep on listening knowing that this is some of the best music ever recorded. And we should be thankful for that, at least.

After the burn-out of L7, who proved that women with guitars don't need to be male fantasy figures, Sleater-Kinney became one of the best exponents of Riot Grrrl rock. They could be infuriatingly inconsistent, but this their final album is a brash and noisy celebration that is quite happy to dispense melody and harmony in favour of anger and energy. Best of all, there aren't any of the embarrassing or lame tracks that blighted some of their earlier albums.

The excellent 'Jumpers' is probably the most poppy track here, but even that has some blistering guitar breaks. 'Let's Call It Love', on the other hand, is a brutal grunge workout celebrating rough bedroom action that descends into a six-minute guitar jam that's reminiscent of Grand Funk Railroad at their very best (that sounds like an insult, but Grand Funk were very occasionally awesome. Sometimes they were as good as Sleater-Kinney). Janet Weiss complements it all with some Bonzo-like drum pummelling.

Unlike on earlier albums, Corin Tucker's shrieking vocals are never out of place here (even if they're an acquired taste) and she does smooth and melodic too. 'Modern Girl' is almost irritatingly pleasant to listen to, but the growing buzz of interference masks the change in mood from shiny-happy to bitter-angry as "happy makes me a modern girl" becomes "angry makes me a modern girl". Tucker's low-tuned guitar still does the job of the absent bass while Carrie Brownstein's lead guitar sears through the whole set.

Some fans hated the change from the quirky, almost amateurish sound of earlier albums (Rollercoaster and Wilderness are for them). But Sleater-Kinney weren't afraid to progress and get better and better without losing their punk edge, at the same time as castigating punk purists who by 2005 sounded like middle-aged nostalgists ("You come around looking 1984/ You're such a bore" on 'Entertain').

Anger, ability, attitude. It's all here.

A well produced and ambitious affair that marked a more mature for the band. While not quite as angry and visceral as the likes of Dig Me Out, The Woods has a charm all its own. Filled with dynamic musical flourishes and powerful, driving vocals, Corin Tucker has perhaps never sounded better than she has here, nor has she been given as much to work with in terms of arrangements from Brownstein and Weiss. I've since picked up a slew of other Sleater-Kinney albums off the back of this, as well as releases from the former bandmate's later releases, but none of them have lived up to the ambition, power and spirit of this. Arguably the best album of its genre ever put together.
