Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyricism. They still tear shit up, though.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 20th January 2015

The Riot Grrrl had all but been filtered out by 1999’s “The Hot Rock”. Sleater-Kinney were evolving into a great alt. rock band. However, some of the rawness of “Call the Doctor” and “Dig Me Out” is missing and the songs aren’t as consistent in their quality. They would complete their transition on later albums when they get the balance between their early days and their progressing brilliance just right. The production here is brighter, but not too shiny, just enough to show their technical qualities whilst keeping their identity in check. Like a few songs on “Dig Me Out”, one of the highlights here, “End of You” begins with a Sonic Youth-esque riff and is a brilliant song worthy of the two albums that preceded this as is “Banned from the End of the World”. Otherwise, this is one of their weaker albums. Make sure that you buy it, though.
