This kicks ass!

OrkyDoc

In a pre-Donnas world, garage-gal retro-rock would reference '60s groups such as the Standells and Troggs, along with a liberal dose of roughened-up girl-group riffs... Nowadays, though, the touchpoints are more likely to be '70s-style hard rock and power-pop backbeats -- Cheap Trick, Montrose, maybe even a little Foghat or Sweet. And of course, we can't forget foremothers such as the Schoolgirls, Runaways and Suzi Quatro. These gals cover a lot of familiar territory, with plenty of jailbait-y pouting and lyrical snarls, but they do hit some solid grooves, and do dip back into the fuzz-drenched 'Sixties grab-bag for a tune or two. They're not saying anything new, but sweaty-fisted fans of the style will probably dig it... especially if they crank it up loud.

darrenfloyd666's a tad misguided.

ElNegroMagnifico

If straight-ahead rock n' roll from the Motor City with blazing guitars is what you're looking for, well...look no further! This is what you need. Now, if you want something a little art-damaged and sensitive, then by all means, follow his suggestions.

Check it out

K-Per

If you like the gore gore girls (or even if you don't), I highly recommend checking out "The Detroit Cobras." My favorite song off this album is Where Evil Grows. Check it out.

Jesus Christ! THIS IS AWFUL!

darrenfloyd666

Cliched tripe with no merit at all. Dull lifeless music with uninspired lyrics with subject matter that's been covered a billion times before a billion times better! Wish I'd never downloaded it. Do yourself a favour and download a Blonde Redhead or Joan As Policewoman album instead.

I Love the Gore Gore Girls

410media.com

If you haven't heard the Gore Gore Girls before this whole album is a must. Their mix of tough girl Detroit Garage Rock and 60s girls group sound is unique and fantastic. Imagine if the Vandellas and the Stooges got together and had a love child. That love child would be the Gore Gore Girls. No-one since the original Pandoras have come close to the Gore Gore Girls. The only disappointment here is that much of this album was previously released on the Casino EP and others, so fans should be selected in what they download.

Neither Norway: Black Death and Afterlife

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

I was warned. "Watch out for the death metal," said my muso friends when I told them I was off to the wilds of Norway for a rock festival – as if I could somehow be mortally wounded by shards of satanic shrapnel. But when I arrived in Bergen, on the west coast of the country, supposedly the wettest place in Europe with over 200 days of rain each year, the sun shone brightly and… more »

They Say All Music Guide

In case you were wondering, yes, there is still garage rock in Detroit, and while the world’s music press has left town looking for the next big thing elsewhere, the Gore Gore Girls have proven that cool tunes, swaggering attitude, and worship of Gretsch guitars are still alive and very well indeed. Get the Gore is easily the Motor City combo’s best album to date, an inspired marriage of big-beat fuzzy guitar thunder, gale-force vocals, and songs that split the difference between hard rock and the Brill Building with such élan that you’d think such things were easy. The Gore Gore Girls’ lineup on Get the Gore is the strongest to be captured on record to date; Amy Gore and Hammer are an inspired guitar combo, bringing plenty of sweat and muscle to these tunes, while the rhythm section of Nicky Styxx on drums and Carol Anne Schumacher on bass deliver the rock with plenty of velocity and no wasted movement. With producer Jim Diamond behind the controls, the Gore Gore Girls have put these songs to tape with high energy, explosive force, and a palpable sense of fun. The group’s songwriting continues to impress as well, especially the fiery “Casino,” the lustful and menacing “Pleasure Unit,” and the hard-charging “Voodoo Doll,” while the cover of the Poppy Family’s “Where Evil Grows” is thankfully kitsch-free and the Dixie Cups’ “All Grown Up” gets a “turned up to 11″ makeover that kicks like a mule. Best of all, Amy’s vocals sound just as tough as her lyrics make her out to be, which is no small accomplishment. Put it all together and you get an album that not only matches the fire and cranked-up spirit of the Gore Gore Girls’ live show, but even goes them one better; Get the Gore is killer rock & roll that belongs in every home where the positive use of estrogen is appreciated. Turn this baby up! – Mark Deming
