No Cities To Love finds the trio facing inwards, rocking out in a tight space, writing short and punchy punk songs and just generally enjoying bouncing off each other once more. No doubt, it's a sophisticated work, just like everything else in Sleater Kinney's past-the two-punch guitar attack of Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein is still as dynamic as it ever was-and the album still retains the defiant spirit of punk feminism that characterized their early works. But this album does nothing more than reaffirm strengths that were established 15 years ago, and the melodies are for the most part generic pop melodies that sound too radio-friendly to be Sleater-Kinney. I'm not saying this album had to be a follow-up to The Woods, but damn this is boring.
