CD Reviews

One of the five albums to bring to a deserted island.
Dylan Bailey | Costa Mesa, CA United States | 04/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The decision to name this album one of the five albums that I would take to a deserted island is entirely disputable. Not because End Hits is undeserving of 5 stars but because each Fugazi album is individually awesome, and to single out one was nearly impossible! I chose End Hits in particular because for me, this album is Fugazi's Sgt. Pepper. Now I'm not sizing Fugazi to the Beatles musically, but I believe that this album marked a musical transcendence for the band. Like Revolver or Sgt. Pepper, this album is a bridge, a fusion of old and new where the bands musicianship and song writing has budded and developed. Where the song arrangements matured and the structuring grew richer and thicker. I won't attempt to categorize each track or compare and contrast them to other music and bands to help you the reader better identify with this album. Doing that would defeat the identity of the band and minimize the significance of their music. I will say this though; Fugazi is a rock band in the truest sense of the saying. They put their souls into what they do and what they take back is the ability to personally connect with their music and the talent to structure and perform it sans ego. For those of you new to Fugazi or for those who have only heard the song "Waiting Room" I would not recommend this album to you. I would suggest starting from the beginning with 13 Songs and chronologically progressing forward until you find your favorite niche. Mine is right here with End Hits."
Intense, cerebral, subtle post-punk rock
Jay Thompson | seattle | 10/19/2000

"I love Fugazi. Red Medicine - the album where Fugazi started branching out and slowing down - initially was the most off-putting thing I'd ever heard, but now I love it. End Hits, its followup is now one of my favorite records.I admire the band's early classics like "Repeater," "Waiting Room," "Merchandise," "Nice New Outfit" or "Margin Walker," but this record tops those excellent punk numbers by moving on from deliberate abrasion."In On the Kill Taker" had the band tinkering out with complex rhythms and structures, but often they couldn't break free of feedback-and-screaming while doing so. This CD throws all that out the window - "Floating Boy" is pure dub, "Five Corporations" is the only punk song in 7:4 time I've ever heard, "Break" and "Recap Modotti" are downright funky.Of course, the lyrics are always superb (especially the anti-borders Jeremiad "Place Position") and Fugazi's performances have finally caught up completely with their songwriting. Buy this awesome album!"
A CD You Can Listen To Over And Over Again

"I guess this is a punk album, but it is one of those rare albums that doesn't deserve a category. It is simply excellent music. Some albums have a definite emotion they draw from the listener. This one is too complex to label with just one. There are parts of this album that make you stop whatever you are doing and just listen. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A PUNK FAN TO LOVE THIS ALBUM."
