It's the very first Sleater-Kinney record, and it's called 'Sleater-Kinney'. In their earliest inception, the band were nothing but punk rock abandon, creating sharp songs anywhere between one minute and three. This record cuts off at an abrupt twenty-two minutes, with tracks reminiscent of both the peak years of grunge and straight-up hardcore punk.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 5th June 2016
Sleater-Kinney, America's foremost trio of femme-punk furies, have always excelled at playing it cool and tough while retaining a strong sense of what their testosterone-addled dude-rock contemporaries would likely term "icky girlie-ness". Stylistically, their songs are full of proud sugar-and-spice signifiers:spirited playground chants, 60s girl-group allusion and preciously campy vocal asides. This album is enjoyable on its own but is especially fun when you compare it to One Beat or The Hot Rock. Such contrast is a testament to a band's evolution.
