Contains one of the greatest songs ever

"and that would be fire engine red. just a word on this production debate; bob weston (sebadoh, mission of burma, june of 44) produced this album, and it's experimental. the vocals are super roomy and sometimes hard to hear, and everything is very natural and live sounding, much like the work of his bandmate steve albini. the production is indeed weird, but calling it a basement recording is ridiculous (personally i think it sounds great). anyway, this is a great album that defined emo back when it was good. emo used to be youthful, innocent, idealistic and genuine (which of course none of the modern emo is). boys life live dressed the part as well to drive all that home, with stand-by-me-esque outfits and hair, like the magazine boys life. every time i listen to fire engine red, even though it's 10 years later, i'm still in awe of how great it is, and many others i know feel the same way. so check it out."

"the feeling of being brought up, or maybe back to life with a simple song or album (in this case) is amazing. people worry to much about production and sound. ive been rightfully raised that music comes from the heart. if there is no heart, there is no (real) music. these boys have done simply that. they recorded there life, love, and heartfelt isolation on one recording. there only worry being not how well its recorded but how well they transformed ther hearts to sound...this is only love and depresion. these days are growing darker and darker if it was not for this record, i would of already closed my eyes for good. the long silence between songs, the trains in the background, the long interludes of crickets and whispering changeing into long emotional blasts of midwestern aggresion simply put- keeps me alive. this recording needs justice. it needs a real music lover. someone who understands not production but beauty and heart in underground sounds. much love and respect..."
One word...Amazing

"This CD is totally amazing, the rythms and the tightness of this band are just plain cool. try it out. If you like bands like Mineral, Ethel Meserve, A Minor Forest, Roadside Monument, The Vehicle Birth, or Slint you should check them out, if your not into the bands I just listed, well still get it, plus the word is amazing so, that says enough right? yes!"
