Description:
Personal Best is the debut studio album by the United States punk band Team Dresch. The album was released in January 1995 on both singer/guitarist Jody Bleyle's label Candy Ass Records and bassist Donna Dresch's label Chainsaw Records.

Washington Post writer Chris Richards called Personal Best "a fiery, all-but-forgotten punk masterpiece".

Reception

Allmusic declared the album is a "call to arms" that "explodes on contact", saying: "Of all the punk records to come out of the 1990s, Personal Best comes closest to actually recapturing the sheer passion and rage which originally spawned the movement two decades earlier..." and praised the band's all-encompassing fusion of the dual emotional and polemical issues felt within the LGBT community, as well as how the band "never put their politics ahead of their songs — each of these ten tracks is airtight, with melodies as blistering as the lyrics".

"#1 Chance Pirate TV" references Sinéad O'Connor's controversial 1992 ripping of a photo of Pope John Paul II to protest child abuse in the Roman Catholic Church.
