Sound — 10
In my opinion, DFA 1979 has really created their own sound. You might think that with just a bassist and a drummer, they wouldn't be that great, but that just makes them more original. Sebastien Grainger's voice goes over the bass, drums, and synth really well, Cold War being a good example of this. Overall, the album sounds awesome.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics aren't utterly amazing, but they're still good. I think the two songs with the best lyrics are Cold War and Black History Month. The rest aren't that deep, but they're still not bad.
Overall Impression — 10
I can't really compare this CD to anything else, because I haven't heard anything else like this. Almost all the songs on the album have something good about them. If somebody stole my album, I would definatly go out and buy it again.
