The all guitars, no bass 'Call The Doctor' saw Sleater-Kinney only two records into their career, at their most political -- the political is of course the personal, as we know, and these songs were inspired by Corin Tucker's experience in a commercial and typically dead-end job. 'Call The Doctor' continues to have Sleater-Kinney's fuck-it punk rock abandon, made before 'Dig Me Out' came along and paid tribute to rock 'n' roll.

9/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 20th January 2015
Sleater-Kinney were formed by Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker who met at University, the same university that Kathleen Hannah and Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill attended. They we’re both in other bands at the time, meaning Sleater-Kinney was merely a side project at first. Initially a Riot Grrrl band, Sleater-Kinney quickly became so much more than that. Pretty much with this, their brilliant second album, “Call the Doctor” The songs are more dynamic and the musicianship is of a higher quality than bands from the Riot Grrrl scene. The songs are powerful, they rock and they’re catchy as hell. Corin Tucker’s primal howl may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s one of the things, along with the interweaving guitar lines, that make them the band that they are. The standout tracks are “Hubcap” and “Good Things”, but it’s all great really.
