The actual 20 minute “Where Were You” jam is kind of fun, but not as fun as you’d think. The remixes are worthless.
I liked this album a good bit when I bought it. It’s much better than Newness Ends. The songs both rock harder and feel more ambitious. 17 is a nice fun loud rock song that builds. The shorter ones feel like they actually go somewhere.
It’s a good album. Only sort of hints at what they’d be capable of later. The songs are all pretty straight forward, although there is some weirdness beneath the surface. It doesn’t rock as hard as later albums would.
Their last really good album. Phil Spector produced, but that’s only half of why it’s so good. These are some of their best and most ambitious songs. Unfortunately, you also hear some real filler. It doesn’t flow like previous albums did. Still a lot of fun though.
Pitchfork hated this when it came out. I actually like it a good bit. I guess I can see the complaint. The songs do sort of run together and drag on. But there are some great songs on this disc. Really ends strong.
This is a really good album. Maybe their best. Still very bluesy and raw, but the songs are tighter. They got maybe a bit too tight on the next one. This one still has a lot of chaotic energy that I love.
This one’s pretty good. But I think there are better ones. Sound is clear enough.
