Album Review: Sleater Kinney - The Center Won't Hold

Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!!

It is of Sleater-Kinney's ninth studio album, The Center Won't Hold.
This was one of the toughest albums for RtBE to review. Had the name on the cover not been Sleater-Kinney, things would have been different, but this is a band who has never disappointed with a release.

While we like some (Dig Me Out, The Woods) more than others (All Hands On The Bad One) no release has been remotely bad....and The Center Won't Hold certainly isn't bad, it is just worldly different from anything they have ever done. In fact going back to listen to All Hands On The Bad One, it sounds much better than I had remembered it, I am not sure that will be the case with this release.

The Center Won't Hold, more than any record we have reviewed in recent years, will need time to either grow in our brain or be washed out and forgotten, only time will tell how we feel about in a few months for our year end review. Until then, judge for yourself.
