"here's dash rip rock's debut. if you've seen them live, you might be disappointed in some of the song recordings. about half of the songs on this cd are still in their playlist, albeit in faster looser versions. they've also re-recorded several of these songs on gold record and the live boild alive, again in better versions. their sound here is not as punkish as it is REM-ish. that said, its the only place to get the great tunes pack your bags, old bridge & just for spite. being dash mach 1, you have to contend with fred "cowboy mouth" leblanc fouling up the air with a couple duds and lead on a cover of hank williams i saw the light (better version on gold record sung by best drummer ever seen, kyle melancon). this cd is definitely worth owning, but their are better first purchases."
