Good idea, but I found the mixing a bit thin. Maybe the CD version I've listened to needs to be remastered.

From Brad1770
This album was my introduction to The Gun Club and remains my favourite GC album ahead of Miami . Dripping with classic track after classic track the real hero here are Jeffery Lee Pierces vocals . This album sits completely safe within my all time list

This is a band and album I really would love to love, but it just isn't happening. Can't put my finger on the why.

From cartoken
what a great record ! It sounds like a 2000's post punk revival album, I think this is what king of leons are trying to sound like.

This album is breathtaking. It's a kind of merging of the Cramps 'voodoobilly', Robert Johnson's Delta blues, Louisiana's swamp rhythms, Jim Morrison's dark and sensual dialectics, and California's hardcore scene. The end result is an hypnotic amphetaminic demonic rock'n'roll that bridged a fine balance of suspense and despair on the one hand, and nihilist anger on the other...Brilliant.

The tracklist seems to be missing "She's Like Heroin To Me", one of their best songs. Brilliant album anyway, what rock should always sound like - drugged up, screamed, dangerous.
