@billdude: I'm surprised to hear you haven't heard this yet. I would bet my life on you reviewing it along the lines of "would have loved this when I was 20 but now I'm an old man" etc. It's definitely a better record to pick up on young. and the length kinda keeps you at arm's length from it until you latch on to 5-10 of your favorite songs (good luck remembering which ones they are).
I am a Minutemen acolyte and love everything they represent to a silly degree (writing WE JAM ECONO in my high school math notebook and other such cringeworthy behavior), but dammit, they're a smart, talented, interesting band! RIP D. BOON
