    This is like 1979 all over again.... in quite a good way. These chicks seem to think guitars and anger are something new and they pretty much make it sound like it is.

    Hey, this album rocks. The girls are full of talent and energy and it comes off really great. Just wish the album ran a bit longer. I hope that they are enthused and inspired enough to do it again real soon!

    Loved SK, also really liked Helium and some of Marys solo efforts. Loud, rocking, drums sound amazing. Everybody shines in their own way. A mix of punk and classic rock stylings w/a blend of Carrie and Marys vocals. Music is uniquely WILD FLAG, yet the familarity of Carrie and Marys singing may harken past projects by default.

    I've been a follower of Mary Timony since her beginning, also Sleater-Kinney from their beginning. I know Mary and Carrie have worked together before, but I was real excited to find out Janet Weiss was going to be in there also. She's the best female drummer...hands down. I flipped out when I found out this CD was coming out and I wasn't disappointed. I clapped and yelled "bravo" aloud when it finished playing on my iPod. The only reason I gave it a "9" is so they will keep on pushing to new heights. Expand

    Alongside the adolescent energy, they also give vent to decidedly adult passions. [Nov 2011, p.93]

    Wild Flag isn't just an exciting debut and one of 2011's most dynamic rock records, it proves that a group is truly super when the personalities involved work together and have fun.

    With the right proportion of leadership and lawlessness, Wild Flag sounds like liberation. Long may they wave. [#81 p. 52]
