30th Anniversary Edition On Vinyl LP!
Remastered With All 9 Songs On Vinyl For The First Time!

This 30th-anniversary edition of the '90s underground rock classic Smell The Magic includes all 9 songs from the album, remastered and available together on vinyl for the first time ever!

A multitude of rock music scenes populated the expanse of Los Angeles in 1989: hardcore punk, industrial goth, roots rock, and Sunset Strip hair metal, to name a few. L7 fit into none of them, creating their own unique blend of punk and hard, hooky rock loaded with humor and cultural commentary. Originally released in 1990, Smell The Magic is a a landmark of '90s feminist rock.

On 1991's Smell the Magic, L7 begins to find the sense of melody to complement its distorted punk guitar assault. The band deserves ultimate praise for writing from a completely female perspective at all times, and the fabulous 'Fast and Frightening' just might be the ultimate 'riot grrrl' anthem.
Three decades have not diminished the power and energy of these fuzzy, nasty tunes. They still grind and ooze like the four women had spent an hour pounding shots of cheap whiskey and rolling joints on their gatefold of KISS' Alive before hitting the studio - the perfect mix of sludge and snottiness.
-Robert Ham, Paste Magazine
