  • Summary: The debut album for the Canadian quartet was produced by Chad VanGaalen.

  1. Every track on Women serves a purpose to the overall stereo image, resulting in a debut that sets the bar very high.
  2. Public Strain improves on Women in every way, which is no small feat. It's 13 minutes long than its predecessor, but Women doesn't use the extra time to spread out. The band keeps the tension up by building the various lean sounds of that record into new, more muscular variations.
  3. A lock for most promising debut of '08.
  4. Fans of Deerhoof and the Brian Jonestown Massacre's "My Bloody Underground" should be blown away by Women, and it's only their debut. They have real promise.
  5. Women may not be easy listening, but it is rewarding listening.
  6. For the most part, the band gets in and out of a song without falling into noise wankery, almost as if they couldn't wait to get into the next idea.
  7. Produced by VanGaalen, this record explores a whole host of interesting sonic ideas, which keeps things nicely unpredictable.
