    This streamlined set, Start Together, captures that dichotomy, archiving the Sleater-Kinney canon with care: from the ideological-punches of thirdwave feminism to their post-riot grrrl classic rock revisionism, all seven albums have been remastered and paired with a plainly gorgeous hardcover photobook, as well as the surprise of a reunion-launching 7" single.

Remastering makes each opus sound crystal clear (with the exception of the intentionally abrasive The Woods). Very happy that I ordered this special edition set while they were available. Expand
