Editorial Reviews

The new record began with the same surprise turn that started Corin Tucker's career back in 1991, ended Sleater-Kinney's 11-year year run in 2006 and inspired the punk-feminist rocker to redefine herself as a stay-at-home mom.
It was early 2009, and Tucker was performing at a benefit show in her hometown of Portland, OR airing out a couple of new songs. Another benefit -- and another pair of unheard tunes -- followed a few weeks later. The reaction from friends, fans and perfect strangers was unanimous. ''Everyone was saying, 'Oh, it'd be cool if you made a record','' Tucker recalls. ''So I thought, Yeah! I should!'' Cue the wrenching rhythms and hard-angle melodies, the slashing guitars and wildly passionate vocals. Only now the hard edges come nestled in lush weaves of acoustic guitars, keyboards,interlocking percussion, even cellos and violins, which places 1,000 Years deep into Tucker's creative headwaters -- another addition to her 20-year catalogue of restless songs for restless spirits.

I have been an avid S-K fan for many moons, and I was devastated when they split. I didn't really know what to expect from Corin's solo album: would this music have the same magic as that of the Carrie/Janet/Corin trio?

The songs are very different from S-K's tunes (except for "Doubt"), but just as powerful. I always thought of Corin as a lead singer and lyricist, but this solo effort makes me appreciate her formidable composition skills. I mean, just listen to Dragon and It's Always Summer. Also, Corin's voice is very different (lower range and husky almost), her musical phrasing is very different... reviewers keep using the word "evolved" to describe her new tunes, but that implies they are somewhat better than S-K. I say these solo album songs are different, just as good, and definitely worth taking a listen to.

Final word: I loved it!! Thank you Corin! Please, never stop making music!!

I so miss Sleater Kinney and now Corin has branched out. It is different but in a good good way. Much better than Cadallaca...lol

After the bludgeoning of the S-K anti-major label, major label debut "Woods", "1,000 Years" comes in like a welcome breath of fresh air. Corin Tucker shows a maturity and confidence to open up her songwriting and vocals to great effect. This is one of my favorite albums of 2010. I hope that she tours as I'd love to see these songs performed live. There's a vast dynamic range in this excellent set of songs, but I think S-K fans will recognize and appreciate Corin's unique talents eventhough there's not nearly as much of her signature full-throated warble on display here. A promising solo debut.

Sleater Kinney was without question one of the best all female groups of all time. Occasionally out of the ashes of your favourite band's demise there comes back at you not one but two great reincarnations. The Beatles go without saying, but more recently you have Uncle Tupelo giving us both Wilco and Son Volt as examples. There are others of course, but this review is not an essay on music history so much as a celebration of living to see both Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker bring us BOTH the Corin Tucker Band and Wild Flag. What's not to love about those two women? However, since this is about the Corin Tucker Band's debut album 1000 Miles, let's look into this particular jewel's facets.

First off it needs to be said that all talk about differences between S-K and CTB is a meaningless exercise. I find 1000 Miles to be thoroughly satisfying in every way, each track offering something of melodic interest and the writing is fulsome and mature. I would have thought the loss of Janet Weiss irreplaceable, but Sarah Lund steps forward and does an excellent job of fueling the flames of Tucker's passionate and nuanced vocals. There is just no filler and both "Doubt" and "Big Goodbye" should thrill anyone's ears as the two standout tracks, though "Half a World Away" and "It's Always Summer" are both excellent. You can hear the Byrds "So You Want To Be A Rock n Roll Star" in "Riley" and "Dragon" could have been an archivist's discovery of a previously unreleased Sandy Duncan song.

What made 1000 Miles a 5 star effort for me was that I loved it more with each repeated playing. After a dozen rotations it came to me: this is one of those quintessential road albums. Put this one in the car stereo, head out onto the highway and give Smokey a run for his money with the volume turned up LOUD. Viva Corin Tucker!

Five stars *****
