The strikingly political punks and part-time indie rockers of Sleater-Kinney wrote songs about crumbling ideals, feminism and corrupt American infrastructures. 'All Hands On The Bad One' was their fifth record, boasting their sharpest melodies and most furious riffs, dabbling in pop exercises while remaining vitally furious.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 20th January 2015
“All Hands On The Bad One” sees Sleater-Kinney return to the more urgent and raucous band that was missing from a good proportion its predecessor, “The Hot Rock”. However, I see “The Hot Rock” as being transitional between their punky, Riot Grrrl roots and the brilliant, original rock band we have here. “The Ballad of a Ladyman” is a great opener and deals with how the band felt they were perceived in a male-dominated world. “Male Model” has similar targets. The title track is also great. This album includes their most pop moment to date “You’re No Rock ‘n’ Roll fun”, which is very catchy and superb. After this album, they just get better and better.
