Released when "The Donnas" were still in elementary school, this sounds like what you would expect their debut to sound like. Raw, sloppy, and still pretty good. It's no "Hungry For Stink", but it's worth a listen for the "L7" fan. "Bite the Wax Tadpole" sounds like something from "Smell the Magic", and "Lets Rock Tonight" is just as good. My favorite by far is "Metal Stampede". One of my favorite "L7" songs. The rest is good, but not great. Die-hards should get this, casual fans go directly to "Bricks are Heavy".

I was a big L7 fan back in the early to mid '90s. While everyone was into Nirvana and Pearl Jam, I was into L7. I felt that L7 was vastly superior to Nirvana and Pearl Jam. I bought everything L7-related that I could get my grubby hands on. Before drummer Dee Plakas joined the band, L7 actually had a male drummer (as if that would make any difference since the production on this cd was awful). I eventually bought their self-titled debut album. I have to admit that this was not the band's best album. Brett Gurewitz's production was less than stellar. Their sound on this album was pretty bad. The songs on the cd were not nearly as catchy as what I heard on "Smell the Magic" and "Bricks Are Heavy". Nevertheless there were some songs that I did like on this album like "Cat-O'Nine-Tails" and "Metal Stampede". The self-titled debut album by L7 may not be their best work but I have heard much worse music by other artists/bands than this album.

This record is so bad that founding members Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner have completely disowned it and have retired it from their live shows. The record is hampered by the inept and lackluster drumming of Roy Koutsky, who was soon thrown out of the band for his unprofessional attitude. The material lacks any sort of focus or originality, and the only positive comment I can make is that the band's progress since then has been tremendous.

This is one of their lesser known albums. Comming out in 1988 they were one of the first of the Epitaph bands, before Epitaph was trendy. This is by far one of their hardest albums with some clasic anthems, such as Uncle Bob and Metal Stampede. They aren't just another female rock band they paved the way for alot of other rock/punk bands. Their 10 year rock career proves that. This album is a must for those how like punk rock!

This album is not as good as it is interseting. L7 went into the studio a little half cocked I think. They did not have drummer Dee yet, so hired gun Roy Koutsky filled in. Listening to this record makes me think that they were in a rush to get this album done. The songs themselves are mostly good, but it is evident that L7 had not developed their style yet. They sound like they were still trying to find their musicical identity.
Bite the Wax Tadpole starts this album off (The literal Chinese translation of Coca-Cola is actually Bite the wax tadpole!). It's a punk song, along with the next track Cat-o-nine tails. From there the album becomes more diverse from the heavy 'Metal Stampede' to the cheese rock 'Running from the Law' and 'Let's rock tonight'. Suzy and Donita had their separate songs already written, they just performed enough of them together to make an album. Their music would become more recognizable starting with their next effort 'Smell the Magic'.
I cannot really catagorize any other L7 albums, rock/punk/metal/ to me it's 'L7' a style of it's own. Interestingly enough I've seen L7 in concert four times and they have never played any of the songs off this album live. Too bad songs like 'Uncle Bob' or 'I Drink' would go along well between 'I Need' and 'Fast and Frightening'. Buy this album if you are already familiar with the distinct style of L7, I think you'll be surprised.
