If you only buy one Circle Jerks CD, BUY THIS ONE

"This is the Circle Jerks album that all others are measured against. The lyrics define the sarcastic punk wit that other bands only aspired to (and wholesome too):

> Be nice, say 'thank you', 'please' once in a while
> It's a beautiful world we live in, give your brother a smile
> Turn to a stranger, give him a pat on the back
> It's not that hard to do, maybe the friendship will last
> Wonderful! ..... Won - Der - Ful!
> Wonderful! ..... Won - Der - Ful!

This is one of only a handful of albums that I've owned on LP, CD, and Cassette. It's one of the best punk rock recordings of all time. It stands up to the test of time. I still listen to this one after all these years.

The title track, 'Wonderful' and the song 'The Crowd' are highlights, but all the tracks are great. It's a punk rock album you can pop in your CD Player and listen all the way through without feeling compelled to skip a track.

Too much to-do has been made about the line-up changes that came about on this album. The biggest difference between Wonderful and prior releases, is that with age they became more experienced musicians. This album is still raw, low-fi, and fast. However, unlike past albums, they sound like a well rehearsed band, an experienced touring live act with many hours of practice logged in on each song."
A few good Jerks songs , but thats it

"This was the first album with the new lineup , and it's a disappointment. They kinda went a cheesy 80's direction with this. However songs like "The Crowd" , "Mrs.Jones" , and "Making The Bombs" stand out as being really great Jerk's songs. Overall it's a bit lousy. But buy it for those three songs."
Classic Work - a Must Hear

"Had to write this when I read the somewhat bad reviews this album got from others. This is a punk classic with a bit of politics and a whole lot of sarcasm. Personally, I think the best tracks on this disc are Wonderful and American Heavy Metal Weekend, but I don't think there is a bad track on it. Definately a "must hear" for any punk fan. It's been about 13 years since I first heard this album, and I still find it entertaining. I know of very few other albums I can say that about."
