It's true that Bikini Kill are not well known for their melodic pop songs, that readily get radio play. But this collection of their greatest hits including the student anthem "Rebel Girl" is a fine representitive of why Bikini Kill are reknown world-wide for being the hottest girl band around. For a huge fan, or for anyone who has never heard of the 'Kill, this album is well worth a listen... go on, release the innner riott grrl !!!
Nine songs, fifteen minutes, the greatest singles collection ever recorded.
Need more? Well, the opening trio, recorded with Joan Jett, are certainly the best-produced BK tracks and are compulsive listening. The downbeat 'The Anti-Pleasure Dissertation' and the riotous 'I Like Fucking' ("Hey! Do you believe there's ANYTHING except troll-guy reality?") are Bikini Kill's best songs. And, like the best bands, they know when they've outstayed their welcome. A short, sharp shock which still sounds fantastic years later and should appeal to all alternative music fans, rather than just riot girls and guys.
