(don't expect any squeaky-clean J.Robbins production here!) But even 'back then', it's easy to recognize their unique approach to songcraft and catchy delivery. And while some of these songs can only be described as hardcore punk, not all of them sneer at you like Johnny Rotten and the Pistols - Travis and the boys throw in a little quieter introspection ("Rusty") and also some endearing TheyMightBeGiants- / Dead Milkmen-style humor ("Soon To Be Ex-Quaker"). Travis' singing was aahhhhem, 'not the greatest' back then, but I find this happy scrappy little CD to be one of my sentimental (with the accent on '-mental'!) favorites. And so must the band, because out of ALL their great tunes, guess which one they opened their Denver show on the 'Change' tour with? "Onward Fat Girl", from this here very CD! (Can you even IMAGINE a song titled 'onward fat girl' being anywhere NEAR 'Change'??! HA! This CD is priceless for its attitude alone!)
This CD is obviously a must for hardcore Dismemberment Plan fans, but if you are just looking to check out the Plan you should probably buy Change or Emergency and I first. Those are the two best releases by this band, and are more likely to please someone who is giving the Plan a shot for the first time. However, if you are a hardcore fan this CD is a good way of seeing where the Plan has come from. It's certainly interesting.
