We gave it a C+

Four years after Sleater-Kinney went on indefinite hiatus, their frontwoman returns with a solo record, 1,000 Years, that is not, sadly, much of a substitute. Corin Tucker’s voice — always so uniquely emotive in the punkier contexts of S-K — looms uncomfortably over songs that sound scrapbooked from other ’90s-centric acts (Liz Phair, Pavement) but never take on a form of their own. It’s not so much retro as dated?and for S-K withdrawal sufferers only. C+
