Did we mention this record is completely amazing? It will make you want to jump up out of your chair, find your friends and change the world.
For all the noisy bluster involving plastic barrettes, thrift-store guitars, and caterwauling political catchphrases, Sleater-Kinney have always been pragmatic about their music. The group's self-titled debut got by on ferocity alone. But each successive release has exhibited a dramatic step forward as youthful exuberance gives way to melody and poise. One Beat is the trio's most assured work yet. A jubilant blast of tambourines, theremin, and Corin Tucker's rubber-band vocals usher in the spiky "Oh!," the Strokes' locker-room diffidence mingles with Sonic Youth's angular cool on "Prisstina," and the title track, all urgent wailing and power chords, rumbles with pure excitement. The rest of the album isn't far behind. --Aidin VaziriSee all Editorial Reviews

Viewed in one way, Sleater-Kinney is one of the most boring bands in the world. Think about it. All they do is turn out one exquisite album after another. Read morePublished on June 11, 2006 by Robert Moore
I was very pleased to see some of the fire back in this group. They really have not written a ballad that brings out any emotion that I remember, unless you count "Good Thing", a... Read morePublished on March 6, 2006 by XraySpex

After buying both The Hot Rock and All Hands on the Bad One, I have to admit my faith in Sleater Kinney was wavering a little bit. Read morePublished on August 15, 2005 by Bouqet for a Siren
