A masterpiece because of how messy, loud, and uncompromising it is. So many different styles and genres somehow mesh into a quasi-concept album that takes the listener on a wild ride. It's crazy to think that it was all recorded in less than two days (apparently one two tracks required multiple takes). My only gripe is that I wish the lyrics weren't drowned out so much.

One of my favorite albums of all time. A raw, emotional masterpiece with great melodies hidden underneath all of the anger and rawness, as well as having elements of post-hardcore, folk, Beatles-esque pop songs and piano interludes. Truly a timeless classic.

The pinnacle of these speed freaks career. This album expanded the parameters of what a hardcore band was capable of more than any other band would have ever dreamed of trying. All it took was a little bravery.

The most complete hardcore punk work I've ever listened to. It's not easy for a band like this to perfectly include in its sound psychedelic rock, folk rock, piano music and the violence of hardcore. A masterpiece.
