  • best album of the 80s
  • Fantastic album. That fiddler is superb.
  • A 'lost classic' of sorts, for sure.
  • This might be the best album ever recorded.
  • My favorite album of the 80s: appealingly sloppy, ambitious rock with a willingness to mash up genres. It's an album of two halves: the first is restless stylistic experimentation that draws on more traditional pop-music genres (country, folk, jazz, etc.) to complicate their post-punk attack; the second half is the result of all that experimentation, a pounding, driving fusion of something like country and something like post-punk. The first side feels eclectic, but sort of tentative; it has the better individual songs, but there's no real flow. The second side feels as organic and seamless as any album side I've ever heard, with a relentless buildup to a stunning pop song ("Last Dance") and then a fadeout on a shambling, apposite cover. Yet, for all its experimentation and seriousness of purpose, Fear and Whiskey is just plain fun, with all the pleasures of rock and roll (pounding drums, howling vocals, sloppy guitar riffs) and a few more besides (like that divine fiddle).
  • One more record of the best band in the eighties. But hoeever: NO ONE UNDERSTANDS!
