5.0 out of 5 stars Seventh Heave for Sleater-Kinney, 26 Jun 2005
This review is from: The Woods (Audio CD)
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.
