    I really LOVE S-K, but I think this is my least favorite compared to the other albums (which are the soundtracks to my life). Maybe I just haven't warmed up to it yet.....

    This album is amazing, for all things: the lyrics, the music, the great voice of Corin Tucker, it's rock 'n' roll!!

    Dig Me Out is still my favorite, but this comes in close second. Cant wait for ONE BEAT!!!

    Amazing album. Guitars are harmonies are some of the best I have heard in a while.

    I think this is Sleater-Kineey's most accessible album, but all in all it is amazing. Is just good fun, great rock, and, in this case, a girl band doing what it does best, rock on.

    Easily their glammiest album, and arguably their most fun. No doubt that one can hear the joy that came with recording it. Sweet mix of hard rocking and a serene touch on their rare undistorted ballads (Left Behind, and The Swimmer).

  1. Despite the thematic monotony, Tucker and her band mates think louder and rock smarter than anyone in their class; a modest effort like All Hands would be another band's masterpiece.
  2. 80
    With simple surf beats and a lyrical bent that takes in everything from ladymen to male models, All Hands... is mostly playful (You're No Rock & Roll Fun) with a touch of pathos (Was It A Lie), but not a bad one in sight.
  3. Some of the finest music of their already sterling career.
