Musically this record is all over the place. It ranges from dreamy pop, to blazing fast hardcore. Overall it's somewhat strange but, there are some really memorable songs on this that grow on you with every listen. My favorite has allways been, Who's Patronizing Who. The great lyrics,swirling almost TSOL like guitars, and short bursts of speed, made(for me anyway) this an instant DC classic. I'm going to put a link for the awesome Good Bad Music for Bad, Bad times blog. If you go into the comments you ll find some great band info from the singer/bass player Matt Riedl. I spent quite a while trying to separate these tracks. If it's not perfect I apologise.
