For a first release in the 2000s, Sleater-Kinney do a solid job in terms of consistency of sound and maintained piercing energy. Following the more subdued follow up to Dig Me Out, The Hot Rock, All Hands On The Bad One feels more close to a true follow up to the strength of Dig Me Out. The tracks are more driving, more catchy, and more memorable overall, and more often than not the group feel like they injected the passion necessary to push their sound forward.

Yeah I still think this is probably my favourite SK album, this to me was the significant album that showed the growth they underwent to be able to create albums like "The Woods".

Standout: Leave you Behind
Favs: The Ballad of a Ladyman, Ironclad, All hands on the Bad one, Youth Decay, The Professional, Was it a Lie?, Pompeii, The Swimmer
Least fav: Milkshake N’ Honey
Worth a listen
Edit : 80 -> 84
