This album is in its own league. Ther most impressive songs are 12:51 with uts catchy guitar and Reptilia with its great vocals and riffs.
As well as 12:51 and Reptillia I also like "What Ever Happened" and "Under Control," with no particularly annoying songs...
Their style isn't really anything, which makes them worth it.
But after the first 5 or 6 songs the record gets kind of boring.
And a record that you truly can listen to straight through.
I know there have been references comparing them to velvet underground and ramones, but, they seem to be neither one...
It's catchy, it's exciting, it's different, it's fantastic.
It can be important, even historic. It is not always necessary.
