It's only half an hour long and I was waiting for it to end, so that can't be a great sign.

No, that's unfair. There is some good stuff there. Not a lot of light and shade maybe. I'll have to listen some more some time.

It's a bit more one-note than previous releases and lacks their earlier vitality (unsurprisingly). Has the disconcerting feeling of a band trying to ape what they did best in the past.

However, there's individual songs that are just plain astouding. I mean, "Bury Our Friends"? Holy fucking shit.

Better upon a second listen...

The title track, A New Wave and Bury Our Friends seem to be standing out (and also Price Tag, actually. Oh, and Fade). Still not sure the whole thing really feels like an album, but ok.

I think Gimme Love threw me off the first time. That sort of stuff is just lazy noise, for them. Short shouty numbers are fine, but come on.

Feels like this thing was announced ages ago. I really need to listen to the stream tomorrow.

Like it, don't love it. I've not listened to them before this album, so I'm coming in without context. There are some really strong songs on here.

Although I loved Sleater Kinney from their very beginnings, I somehow never caught them live. So I was more than happy when a new album and tour were announced, as this meant that I would finally be able to make up for a 20 years' omission.

I just got home from their SF gig, and dare I say it, I enjoyed it more than my past three U2 shows.

Great energy! Great sound! Great vibes! What a fantastic live band they are! Of course one can ALWAYS carp at the setlist and I wouldn't have objected 2 or 3 further kick-in-your-face-tunes and I would have jolted the place even more by cranking up the volumes to 12 instead of 10, but that's just me and in NO WAY does that impair the experience. It was a tremendous night!

Price Tag is such a PERFECT opener. And to get to hear a live rendition of The Fox is something I thought would never come true. But it did.

Some other highlights were Ironclad, Dig me Out, Gimme Love etc.

They sure have a repertoire of songs most bands can only dream of.

One of the finest shows I've ever been to.
