4.0 out of 5 stars The Babes are back in a more Melodic effort December 21, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Babes in Toyland have always been an angry high-energy riot grrl punk band, utilizing thier duelly raw guitar sounds, Lori Barbero's powerful druming and Bjelland's forceful "don't screw with me!" voice. For their last album, these grrls dropped the anger down a notch and directed it into a new sound. Tracks like "Hello" and "Killer on the Road" have a grungier sound to them, while "Oh Yeah" reminds me of the Fontanelle days. What clearly appears to be the strongest element on this album, is the more soft-spoken near-harmonic level of Kat Bjelland's singing. The anger and energy is still present in "Sweet '69" but "Surd" and "Ariel" sound like lullabies in comparison. Nemesisters is one of those albums that reveals a group's ability to have a different sound and still rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Grr January 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
For those of you who know the song "All By Myself," from Eric Carmen, you can just skip this. For those of you who don't, the song "All By Myself," which is featured on this (excellent) album is a cover of a song which was recorded a long time ago by a weenie. Yes, I know, that's harsh, but whether you liked it or not, Eric Carmen was a weenie. The original is the epitome of whining alone-ness, but it's definitely too sissy to be angsty.

Then there was Babes In Toyland's version, which is not, as some reviewers would have you believe, a poor recording or a lack of effort on the part of the band. The song needs to have the crap kicked out of it in order to both express the actual emotions of the song (whining angst, not loneliness) and to be terribly ironic. I'm not saying that Babes In Toyland are the next Beethoven, but this treatment of the song is deeply ironic. So when it all goes to pot at the end, it's intentional. Completely. And if you can't grasp that concept, just think of it as feedback at the end of a song.

The rest of the album has been appropriately reviewed elsewhere, but you should buy this album, if only for the various covers. That is, unless you liked Eric Carmen, in which case, you should really consider what you're doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Babes Will Blow Your Mind August 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is work of pure brillance and individuality. Sweet 69 is fun and funny, Surd has the longest and most powerful scream I have ever heard come from a woman, 22 just makes me want to dance, Ariel is powerful and intimidating, and the rest of the album is just as awesome. I'm not usually into screaming in music but when it comes from Kat it is different than when it comes from one of those bands you hear on Headbanger's Ball. Kat impowers me and makes me want to scream out "I am woman!"

Nemesisters is really different in my opinion to other Babes in Toyland albums---which isn't to say it's a bad album, but does mean you might not get what you expected if you buy it before listening. "Hello" is absolutely beautiful---Kat's voice really shines on this track and the guitar is so strange (in a good way). "Drivin'" is good, but the repeated lyrics do kind of drone on. "Sweet '69" is fantastic---reminds me of songs like "Bruise Violet" and "Handsome & Gretel" from the Fontanelle album. "Ariel" is a beautiful song; Kat's voice and the instrumentals are excellent, though I like the live version from the Minneapolism album much better than the album version. "Killer on the Road" isn't exceptional, but it did show that Maureen Herman (bassist) also has singing talent. I didn't really feel that the rest of the songs were anything to write home about. I didn't like the covers ("We Are Family" and "All By Myself") very well. This is probably because I never did like the original "We Are Family" to begin with. "All By Myself" doesn't even sound like anything Babes in Toyland has ever released, so I was surprised by it. The album does have some redeeming songs, but the rest I assume you have to be a fan of Babes to really like.
