Because, Timtooky, it's a little more cerebral than your beloved Toy Dolls LP. I hope you didn't read that it was a concept album and were expecting another Dark Side...

And yes, having looked at your chart, your music taste is disastrous. Maybe giving this album more than 3 minutes would help address that (and starting with Turn On The News rather than Dreams Recurring). Otherwise it's Europe LPs and sodding Life is Live by Opus until you shuffle off, I'm afraid.

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.
