"Babes In Toyland isn't my favorate band, but this is definitely my favorite album ever. I've had it for a while now and it's my most listened to cd. Kat is screaming her ass off most of the time, but that mixed with her dissonent guitar playing and Lori's wild drum beat(there's a crazy beat throughout "Dust Cake Boy") makes for some great listening. There's some great sort of twangy guitar work in "Swamp Pussy" and "Lashes." My favorite song on here has to be "Fork Down Throat" because of Kat's hardcore growls and screams. What I most adore about this album is the writing. It's hard to tell what she is saying most of the time so i used the internet for lyrics.Here's how I rated this album:
1. Swamp Pussy - 10/10 great guitar work, love the lyrics
2. he's my thing- 6/10 I liked the video version a lot better, but it's still kind of lame
3. vomit heart- 10/10 Great Song!
4. never- 10/10 I love the band at the beginning and end of this song, it sounds so trashy!
5.boto(w)rap- 7/10 the band sounds great and i love the lyrics, but Kat's voice doesn't compare to the rest and there's a chord pattern that's too repetitive.
6.dogg- 9/10 Lori is actually a very good singer, and Kat's guitar sounds a little scary
7.pain in my heart- 6/10 kind of boring...
8. lashes- 7/10 it's a little cheesy but the guitar sounds great
9. you're right- 10/10 I love the bass line on this song!
10.dust cake boy- 10/10 probably the fastest with the most yelling
11. Fork Down Throat- 10/10 My favorite Babes in Toyland song by far, i love what Kat's voice can do in this song, and it has her best guitar solo on this album!"

"I ADORE this cd.Babes in toyland while an excellent band, out did themselves with this cd, especially for it being their first.i was introduced to BIT through Hole, and while my hole cds are off somewhere collecting dust, I still listen to BIT, this cd in particular constantly to this day."
Raw and unnerving

"This is the Babes' debut album,and the name right away gets you interested."Spanking Machine" has some great songs on there,such as "Swamp Pussy","You're Right","Dust Cake Boy",and my absolute favorite,"Lashes". the lyrics (when you can understand them,or,like I do,look them up online),are so deep and poetic and personal.Kat's angry,hurt yowl and soft,babydoll whisper are a fantastic mixture of what makes Kat Kat.This CD is hard to listen to at first,since I was used to the more melodic "Fontanelle," but it has grown on me. it is so complex yet primitive,groundbreaking yet stereotypically punk.I also recommend "Fair is Foul and Foul is Fair," the latest compilation of Babes material.It has several demos of many songs on "Spanking Machine". I highly recommend this album!!
