  1. Some of the finest music of their already sterling career.
  2. I highly recommend this album - musically, politically, aesthetically, thematically - you name it.
  3. Their brightest, most accessible album to date... the band is absolutely brimming with confidence and vitality.
  4. 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.
  5. A strong collection of quick, higher-energy rockers.
  6. 80
    All Hands on the Bad One may not be as spiritually cohesive or accomplished as the band's classic 1997 outing, Dig Me Out, but none of that matters when you turn it up and play it loud.
  7. 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.
