CD Reviews

A brief look at SPIN's editorial review of THE SINGLES
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm really only writing this review for the sake of pointing out how ...SPIN magazine is - often criticized by the band for it's superficial reporting of the punk underground, we find that the dumb ...can't even review a CD properly...right on the main listing for this album, SPIN describes the CD:"The Singles boils down the band's brief career into a package as compact and abrasive as a scouring pad."No, THE SINGLES is not a career retrospective. Bikini Kill was not a major-label band that put out albums and then promoted them with radio-ready single releases plucked from it's core. Their 7" 'singles' were completely original, previously unreleased work crammed onto 45 rpm vinyl. For a long time, these nine songs were only available to those with turntables, but after the band broke up Kill Rock Stars put that material out as _The Singles_ on CD and cassette. But it's obvious SPIN did little more than look at the albums cover before writing up that short, misinformed and completely useless review (the songs here are never described, the writer merely throws out adjectives commonly used to describe the band's sound and other cute wordplay).Anyway, this is a really good collection of some of the bands best work, but only the song REBEL GIRL is also available on their albums, which are well worth owning."

"The Singles is my favorite Bikini Kill record because it represents perfectly feminist issues, personal struggle--and Joan Jett and Kathleen Hanna playing "Miss Mary Mack" doesn't hurt either. The Singles is what teenage girls would write if teenagers wrote really, really great things. Juvenile sex exploits and childhood abuse are written with a maturity that seems almost contradictory to the shocking accuracy with which these abuses are portrayed. The songs are written in blood with an emotional cord that plugs right into yr gut. It's experiences that all girls have gone through, only written so that everyone can understand."

"I heard about this through a movie and bought the first one of their CDs I found. The first time I listened to it I thought "what a waste of $" and put it away. About 2 wks ago I put it back in the CD player and it's been there ever since. I LOVE it. Incredibly un-intimidated, un-inhibited... I have recomended it to at least 7 people so far"
