· 'Sleater-Kinney is America's best rock band' - Greil Marcus, Time (2001)
· Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994.
· The band's core lineup consists of Corin Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and Janet Weiss (drums).

· The album appeared at number four in The Village Voice's ‘Pazz & Jop’ critics' poll for 2005.
· “They bash Eighties nostalgia, tell a feminist fairy tale and even quiet down for a couple sensitive love songs – needed breaks from music so intense you wonder how they can contain its explosiveness” - Rolling Stone (100 Best Albums of the 2000’s).
· “To survive these days, you have to be either suicidal or superficial. Sleater-Kinney, meanwhile, get by simply sounding fucking supersonic” - Stephen Deusner, Pitchfork (9.0).
