Part 14 - All Hands on the Bad One - Sleater Kinney (2000, Kill Rock Stars)
I love this album. I'm totally surprised that I hadn't originally put it on the old iPod, which means that I hadn't listened to it outside of my car in . . . 3 years? 4 years? Weird.
I want to say that I got this CD way back in the back day when I listened to a lot of dyke rock (a little acoustic Ani, a little Melissa Ferrick, some . . . you know . . . Indigo Girls) but it's also totally possible that I picked it up from Hypatia's Ex (a person you can blame for most of my music) (not the Indigo Girls tho). Who knows. I do know that I saw them on their last tour and that was pretty great.
So - they're fun. A little gritty. 13 tracks wrap up in just over 36 minutes. You get in, you get out. You have a fun time while you're there. It's kind of great.
I've been packing all day. I got nothing.
Favorite Track - "You're No Rock and Roll Fun" - totally awesome
Least Favorite - "The Swimmer" - the only really slow song on the album. Kinda boring.
Next up - Amethyst Rock Star - Saul Williams (2001) (and then we're all caught up and can go back to strict alphabetical listening!)
