"Revisted this CD after it'd been sitting on the shelf for a few years...simply awesome! The overall effect still comes off with energy, depth, and above all, power. Just like it did way back then. The mark of a good recording? Timelessness...Though the band sounds like they had more than a few "competing" egos at the time (compare Brian's silky smooth alto on 'Mind Enemy Mind' versus do-it-all guitarist Ivan's ragged performance on 'The Line'), they still had it going on.Of special note is the syncopation between Robert on drums and Bob on bass...very, very essential to the mix, and quite in the forefront with Steve Albini's "dry" production approach. Sort of like PJ Harvey's 'Rid of Me' or Nirvana's 'In Utero', for that matter.Take a listen, you'll enjoy it immensely. But personally, I'd stay away from their "newer" stuff...it's way too commercial and Ivan's vocals aren't stellar at all. At least he tried hard. But worse, they point a little too clearly to their ultimate, unfortunate demise. Sort of like Ireland's Therapy? suffered when they got too commercial and sappy."
