I probably would have liked this in high school.

I think this album made me realize the reason why there is a rating for the album and a rating for each track. After 15 listens, I can say this album doesn't tell me anything at all. I could even say I find it boring. But then, I listen to each track alone, and each one of them is a complete masterpiece. If this album had a different organisation, it would probably be one of my favourites of all time. My favourite tracks are Sunday and Shook Down.

This album is a modern masterpiece. Pavement with shoegazing is a really good idea.

It owes a lot to the rock stylings of the 90s, but it still sounds very fresh and never gets old. The guitar sounds a lot like Dinosaur Jr, but the songs structures are so different (they remind me more of Guided By Voices) that's it's not all that noticeable. The first half is fast and powerful, and then the second half melts into a kind of shoegaze mess. From beginning to end a very good listen, one of the best rock albums from the decade I've heard.

Such a great album. "Rubber" is better than any fuzz-noise rock track I've ever heard. Even the B-sides rocked my socks. Not to mention the teaser "Chew". Such a shame about the new line-up/sophomore record.

For me, this is the album of the decade so far. It combines shoegaze, which is probably my favourite genre, with the Dinousaur Jr. esque indie rock sound, which I also love, and the result is truly fantastic. This album is so very underrated- I mean, its not even in the top ten of the year, when it should be in the top ten of the decade. This album is below Amok, Angles, 21 and the King of Limbs for the decade. What the fuck. And to see Rubber as not a top rated track really hurts me, its such an incredible song. Other great songs are Get Away (obviously, with it probably being my favourite song of the decade), Operation, The Wall and Suicide Policeman. But there aren't any weak tracks on here at all.

This album needs much, much more love.

Well I am only 5 songs in and I already know I love it. How the hell have I avoided this so long?!? It's really annoying that I did.

Excellent debut album by Yuck here. They sound a lot like Dinosaur Jr. or Sonic Youth which is a great sound that I don’t hear mimicked very often. Great guitar playing, great songs but my only problem with the album is that on a couple of songs it’s really hard to hear the vocals because everything else is so loud. But that’s it. Altogether this is a really great album and I liked it a lot. A variety of different types of songs, from loud and noisy to soft and slow, it’s a great album that’s definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re a Dinosaur Jr. or Sonic Youth fan.
