5 stars I bought this album recently, after hearing Oily Way on this website. I then downloaded Oily Way and that was it. I was hooked.

I needed to know what the rest of the album was like. It was weird, I'd never gotten that from listening to one song, but thats what this album is like. Absolutely amazingly addictive.

Honestly though, I was dissapointed after listening to it the first time. I thought "Oh, I guess it was pretty good but..." But then I listened to it again, and again, and again and I realized "wait, this is possibly one of the greatest albums i've ever listened to!" (I had the same response to "Lizard" by King Crimson)

None of the tracks on the album are weak. Sure, there are definately stronger songs and weaker songs, but no out of place or bad songs. My favourite songs are Eat That Phone Book Coda, and Oily Way, but not by much. Every other song is tied for second place in my mind.

All in all this is a purely classic, essential, incredible album that NO ONE, no matter what should be without. period. So go! BUY IT NOW! Give it a few listens and you'll see. You'll see that every penny you spent on the album was worth it.

PS. I would recommend buying the remastered version just for the song "Ooby Scooby Doomsday or The D-day DJ's got the DDT Blues" that is included as a bonus track.
