I listened to this once through and thought it was really good... but now I listen to it and hear garbage. The LP's are nice, but the mujsic contained on them is horribly boring. Influential perhaps, but weak.
The Gore of "Hart Gore" and "Mean Man's Dream" were an incrdible Band. After that it became one guy's ego trip. And he wasn't the most talented of the bunch, if I recall correctly. Glad, to hear that "Mean Man's Dream" will be reissued. Fantastic record.
