Music From the A&E Television Series (Koch)
If a compilation is to be judged on musical merit alone, Rollergirls gets a C. There are highlights (Dale Watson's "Way Down Texas Way," Red Meat's "The Girl With the Biggest Hair"), and buzz kills (Kacy Crowley's "Badass," Ani DiFranco's "Amazing Grace"), but what it comes down to is substance. This is the TV version of our Rollergirls. We need ferocity, not Lilith Fair pseudo-feminism wrapped in glossy paper.
