Monumental album. They were on top of their game here. It's like one of The Who's concept albums as performed by a ripping Hardcore band. Definitely the high point of Husker Du's career and one of the high points of Hardcore as a whole.
This is so brilliant. Pretty much got me into punk music which I never thought would happen. I don't think epic has ever applied to an album better. Still can't quite grasp side 2 though. It's kind of the necessary part where everything just breaks down.
