Because the A-side is as full of cheap synths, poor singing, and signposted chord changes as the very best music from the 80s. Serieses of 7" are cool as well.
Favorite track: Future Islands - Cotton Flower.
What a GREAT album! It has been a while since I found an album that I could listen to from beginning to end without skipping. Classic Ian MacKaye vocals. Amy Farina absolutely kills it on drums. I hadn't heard of Joe Lally on Bass, but really enjoyed his singing/bass. I highly advise checking this out. You'll get hooked. I love "Clean Kill" but "BQM" does it for me (love the beat). Congrats Coriky! Nicely done! Can't wait to see you live!!! dabeave666
