Disagree with the notion of this being overrated, if anything, its severely underrated! Great bass and drum grooves, jangly and jagged guitars, late 70s post-punk vocal delivery, borderline post-hardcore at times, punky yet melodic. I'm hearing Cure, Gang Of Four, Wire, and Television influences off the bat... With only 2 comments and 133 ratings (before mine) and ranked at 43rd of 1980, 324th of the 80s, and 1999th all time respectively, this album is highly underrated in my opinion.

A good album, but slightly overrated these days, in my opinion. There's no doubt that it's a highly influential record, but still, I don't think it's quite as good as it is claimed. Still decent though.

This is the ablum that started industrial rock (and from which Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and Soundgarden got their badass sound). That's a pretty monumental achievement. It's rough and brusque, relentlessly so. One of the most underrated works on this site.
