  1. Whether thrashing out punk anthems Bikini Kill or turning out dancefloor-ready disco pop as on ‘This Island’, Hanna has always had something to say, and never has her message sounded so clear.

    The band is throwing a dance party--albeit DNC-promoting--led by cheerleader choruses and beats that snap, skip, and glisten like something out of a '79 discotheque. [22 Oct 2004, p.95]
  3. Kathleen Hanna’s girlish yelp grates more than usual, practically bereft of charm, and her bandmates can barely write a functional song much less play one.
