"im surprised no one's reviewed this one yet.
it's just two tracks- one is 28 minutes the other 41 minutes.
the reason this is equal to, or better than pop tatari is because there are no boring moments on it- pop tatari, while it's amazing, had a couple pointless tracks. this is pure boredoms energy all the way. if you can stomach 70 minutes of it, then this is definitely an album for you. if not, try pop tatari first.
nothing, i repeat, NOTHING, sounds like this."
Mind-shredding Boredoms Super Goodness!!

"If you're here expecting some detailed deconstruction of everything that makes up the Boredoms, I can't help you. Maybe try them on with one of the later (and cheaper) CDs like "Pop Tatari" or "Super AE". You'll either run away screaming or become an acolyte. I will say though - there is a ferocity to this CD that you don't hear on their more well-known releases.
If you're comparing this to the Soul Discharge: 1999 version and wondering which one to get (they're both expensive), here are the differences -
This album is divided up into two portions (and two tracks): Soul Discharge and Early Boredoms. Their track lengths are discussed in the other review here. The Soul Discharge section is missing four pieces that are on the 1999 Import version - track 1 and the last 3 tracks. When it comes to the Early Boredoms stuff, some of it will sound familiar - I know there are at least a few tracks that were released on "Onanie Bomb". But since it is extra stuff and this shimmy disc version is cheaper than the other copy, this is the safer bet. It's a shame this material hasn't gotten a remaster or stayed in print in America.
A little while ago, I got this for $2 here. I don't know how I got so lucky. Hee hee hee."
