    No Home Record brilliantly weds noise textures to pop dynamics.

    No Home Record is impossible to listen to without making reference to her former band, yet it stands alone as the finest work of a magnificent, imposing talent.

    A ferocious solo debut. It’s jagged, chaotic and mesmerizing in a way that pulls you inevitably into the thick of it, as if the songs were exerting their own inescapable gravity.

    It feels hungry, modern and thrilling. [Nov 2019, p.111]

    It’s a record that makes incisions into the staid, one that knocks over the steadfast; it’s a bold, thrilling construction, one that pushes her history to one side in order to build anew.

    No Home Record roils with just the kind of catharsis we need in Bad Timeline America. Play it loud, play it often, play it again.

    No Home record offers few tunes you could whistle, but at it's best Gordon's no-wave din and take-no-shit snarl offer unabashedly militant thrills. [Nov 2019, p.87]

    Thrilling and breathtaking first solo album by Kim Gordon. Noisy, electronic and No Wave rock, great songs indeed. Well done, Kim.

    I'm not sure what I was looking for in a Kim Gordon solo record, but this is not it.
