Angry/Need to really rock out.

It’s…uh. Yeah, it’s something. I mean it does really reflect the music, especially tracks like Death is Forming and My Family.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

I almost had my hands on a copy of it the other day, but alas, they were sold out. One day my prince will come.

Final Thoughts:

This is such an incredible album. I love every track on it. There are few albums that I play on repeat but this is one of them. Jay Reatard’s vocals and guitar playing are incredible. This is exactly what I’m looking for in a punk record and I don’t think any other punk album will ever top it for me. RIP Jay Reatard.
