Arguably Sleater-Kinney’s definitive statement, 2005’s ‘The Woods’ is given a nice little remastering job by Sub Pop for this new reissue. As fans will already know, this is one of the best and brightest records of the post-riot grrl era. On ‘The Woods’ Sleater-Kinney take the embattled energy of Breeders and Bikini Kill and run it through Sonic Youth’s knotty songwriting style. This album set the scene for the emergence of acts like Big Thief a few years down the line.

This music is messy and cathartic. It's abrasive and unruly. So why does this album work so well then? The band succeeds because they so effectively utilise what other musicians and bands cover up with slick production and showy technique: raw emotion. Love 'em or hate 'em, just listen to Corin Tucker's vocals....that's all you need to hear in order to get the message. The message of The Woods rings loud and clear throughout the album, and it's hard as hell to ignore. But then again, with music this intense, why would you want to?
