A guitar heavy post-punk album that builds some jagged grooves and cynical lyrics.

From corenfro
To echo @swhaze "The music sounds sparse and empty. Actually, this album is just plain boring."

Yep. Musically one dimensional, no vocal melodies. "Post Punk" but didn't fix any of the problems punk has. In a year when London Calling came out and *DID* fix a lot of the problems with punk, this does nothing to be memorable at all.

Ether and Damaged Goods kick ass, not to mention 5.45 and Anthrax are exceptional closing tracks. Not a weak track on here.

One of the great albums of the late seventies. An excellent arty pop record with hints of talking heads, entertainment, is a superb record from start to finish. Simply essential.

From ERadio
Gut punch. Stabbed in the back. Dead end job. Disinterested spouse. Failing libido. No control. What to do? Andy Gill's guitar shines - stiletto stabs in the night. Pierce the fog, pierce the pain, pierce the bastards in Parliament who keep us down. No redemption, but yes, catharsis.
