luck with finding this album. Jawbreaker's major label
debut, which was supposed to be the first of three according
to their contract with Geffen, also happened to be their
last album ever. I had never seen this album anywhere,
much less had I known that it even existed until about
a month ago when I had to dish out twenty bucks for
it at the local record store. I came home and got online
and after a few minutes of research, the only logical
explanation I could come up with was that this album
has been out of print for a while. How the record store
even had it in stock I don't know, but I'm not complaining.
only difference between this and any other Jawbreaker
album is slightly better recording quality. Blake's
guitar sound is absolutely huge, and as always, gotta
love his lyrics. Now more than ever the songs are full
of crunchy hooks, and while I think the band's earlier
work was slightly more emotional, the energy displayed
here makes up for it. In all honesty, except for one
or two songs, I like everything on here. Classic Jawbreaker.
Don't be put off by the major label, you'll only be
cheating yourself out of a great CD. Well, that is if
you can even find it.
