Good release ... Midnight Boom is better!
M. Bauer | Evansville, IN | 05/31/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"good album ... buy "Midnight Boom" if you're choosing between the two!
The sound is edgier and raw and they're honed in to a level that is near perfection."
This band rocks
Paul Choate | Sacramento, CA USA | 09/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The parallels to early PJ Harvey (and White Stripes) are on cue. If you like minimalist crunchy/bluesy rock with punk undertones, especially with searing female vocals, then this is the band for you. The music of Chrissie Hynde, Kim Deal, and Joan Jett also come to mind. The Kills aren't mimicking these greats, they are unquestionably unique, but they have definitely tapped into the same incredible sound.

The Kills are like eating 90% cocoa chocolate - not much sugar or cream, but overpoweringly dark and delicious. Not everybody has the taste for it, but those who do will love this.

Rock Fast, Die Young

"Greasy like unwashed hair. Frantic like a smack addict looking for a fix. Dirty like an inner city squat. The Kills make music that feels like it's been made in a filthy apartment with no décor save for an ashtray full of yellowing cigarette stubs and a couch smeared with indecipherable stains. Like the Mickey and Mallory of the US alternative music scene, Alison `VV' Mosshart and Jamie `Hotel' Hince have created a snarling opus on No Wow that seductively recalls PJ Harvey at her most enthralling. After making a name for themselves on the back of 2004 debut Keep On Your Mean Side, the second album found the partnership between VV and Hotel laying down their sound in a Michigan ghost town. Resulting single The Good Ones is currently getting plenty of radio play and Rage is enjoying the sexy presentation of VV in the video, yet there's a sinister element to the music of The Kills that can't be underestimated. Lyrics such as `I can't get full. Please could you fix my shakes' indicate that I Hate The Way shares more than just a tempo shift with The Velvet Underground's incredible tune Heroin, while the aloof lyrics of Rodeo Town - `If I am so evil, why are you satisfied?' - offer further evidence of a bleak partnership. Of course, like Natural Born Killers, it's bound to end in violence and murder, but No Wow's still a neat ride through makeshift percussion, panicky guitar and haunted vocals. A DVD is included so you can make up your own mind about their chemical and personal addictions, but it's fairly obvious The Kills are more Black Plague than White Stripe."
