Sick 'Em, 7 Year Bitch's debut album, relies mostly on energy and brash attitude to put itself across; while the band possesses a vicious musical attack, the buzzing guitars and chanted lyrics only occasionally coalesce into a memorable riff or melodic hook. Nevertheless, 7 Year Bitch's aggression is clearly cathartic, and thus a fine riot grrrl outing. Highlights include "Lorna" and the notorious "Dead Men Don't Rape."
