This band just gets better and better. People think that they have faded away, but those are the people that just want the screaming and the fast distortion all the time. Which is boring, if overdone. Fugazi is about the music, and this album proves it. Without trying to sound like someone else, and still sound like a punk band. But not your typical stereotype of what punk sounds like. Fugazis three vocalists are there, and so are the two guitars playing off each other and creating rhythms together. This album goes from rock to melodica, to a piano driven song to something with a bell. It just always changes. You can tell that they experimented with a lot of concepts and ideas throughout the album, and even though it isn't as grandous as Radiohead, its there. It isn't overdone and abundant like Pink Floyd-ish stuff, instead its very concise and to the point.....not too hard for the basic music listener to understand. And the album is only consisting ten tracks. The finale of the album is almost the best Fugazi song I ever heard. The solos (oh yes...good, short solos that fit perfectly with the music and dont isolate anything one bit but make it stronger) are beautiful and melody wise are great, the same with the tracks themselves. After listening to this album, I wonder what Fugazi will do next.
