AllMusic Review by

Brand New Knife finds Shonen Knife returning to punk-pop after the metallic experiments of Rock Animals, both for better and for worse. While the record offers more thrills than its predecessors, it sounds more tired than their late-'80s and early-'90s records. For longtime fans, there's enough strong moments to make Brand New Knife fun, but there's enough filler to make it disheartening as well. [Seven bonus tracks, sung in Japanese, were added to the American CD edition.]
