What I love about it is that the lead singer sounds like a deranged mental patient

Fantastic form start to finish. Very influential album . All the songs are pretty short so its a quick listen, very much worth listening to from start to finish. You either like Black Francois or you dont, theres not much in between. Kim Deal's backing vocals and driving basslines are phenomenal, however, and really make the songs special. Only song I dont care for too much is Silver where Kim takes the lead vocal role. Nothing agaisnt her, she has a wonderful voice, the song just doesnt fit with the flow of the others and understandably so.

Favorite Songs: Hey, Here Comes Your Man, La La Love You, Tame, Debaser, Gouge Away, (I could keep going)...

Least Favorite: Silver, No 13 Baby

Not the greatest album ever but a contender for best of the eighties. I think BEA has it at one. I put it at two for now. (haven't heard them all and never will)

Songs average 88, + 5 for sheer number of 5-star tracks (6 of em, fer crackin out loud). Album rating 93/A
-Wave of Mutilation (4.5) Could be 5.0, but once you hear the chill version you want to keep hearing it
-Here Comes Your Man (4.5) Catchy, but not so impactful
-Silver (4.0) I dig it. LLLove You, Mr. Grieves & There Goes are weaker, I think, with Dead about even.

I'm gonna be completely honest. I was slightly disappointed with this album. With just about every single critic (on this site and many others) praising this album to the high heavens, I was expecting this album to blow me away. And with it's short length of only 38 minutes, I was expecting to want to listen to it over and over again. But I guess my expectations were a little too high. The best way for me to describe this album is if you're listening all the way through the album, it's a fantastic and enjoyable experience, but there are several songs that aren't very enjoyable when you listen to them on their own. Another thing I noticed is that alot of the songs sound very similar (especially "Debaser" and "Wave Of Mutilation"). Overall, this is a fantastic album, but it's not perfect.

Best Songs: Here Comes Your Man, Debaser, Monkey Gone To Heaven, Tame

Worst Songs: Silver, Crackity Jones, Wave Of Mutilation

Album Grade: 95/100

I'll be honest at first I was not a big fan of them, Black Francis' vocals is an acquired taste.

Still, an amazing album from start to finish. The grudge scene would not be the same without them
