I liked this album a good bit when I bought it. It’s alright, but it is a band in transition, and Sumner isn’t Ian Curtis. The songs are more fun and energetic than on Closer though.
This really isn’t that good or interesting. I should stick to the album or the live shows.
Still a fun album to listen to. Haven’t listened to it in a long time, but it mostly holds up. It isn’t as exciting for me as it once was though. 18 more words

Was also a bit underwhelmed by this one. “Bastards of Young” is a cool song, but the rest is kind of boring for me. I might even like the bonus tracks more than most of the album tracks.
Had mixed feelings about this when it came out, and I still do. There are some really catchy enjoyable songs. But it all feels and sounds so phony. 55 more words

I sort of consider this one of their last good albums. It’s actually a bit too pop oriented for my taste, but it has some really good songs and it doesn’t ever feel repetitive. 19 more words
Actually is a compilation of the first album and the Hee-Haw EP with jumbled tracks. I actually like it more than some of their later stuff. 16 more words
