@poppmusic all due respect, you're confusing this with Trout Mask Replica. These are all fully realized songs, no nonsense.

It was a cover of "Corona" by Calexico (on their Convict Pool EP, which I had set as my wake-up alarm for the better part of a year in Bennington, Vermont) that brought me to this album. Mike Watt's wild, frenetic bass playing was what drew me in, and soon I began to realize that many of the tracks on this album shared the frantic energy I loved about "Corona"--though that is still my favorite song on this long ride of an album.

Bass work is great. I also love the "minute" song ideas. It's refreshing and some of it is extremely good, while some of it is simply above average. It definitely isn't 40 blank punk rock songs, 80% of a very unique sound, which is quite the feat.

One of the best punk albums of all time. It reminds me of Trout Mask Replica but it's not avant garde or experimental.

Experimental punk, showing these guys had endless ideas. D. Boon's death was one of rock/punk's great tragedies. Guy was a genius. Listen to this record forever, will never get old because it's so packed full of nuances.

Rock's equivalent of "Art of Fugue". Universal. Perfect. Works as a collection of songs. Works as a single experience. Works when nothing else works.
