    The Mekons can do anything, because no one told them they couldn't, and they do it better than almost anyone else. [#9, p.152]
  2. The band's cadre of dedicated followers will no doubt forgive the dark direction as they file the disc in with their numerous other classics.
  3. Alternative Press

    Easily ranks among their best. [Oct 2002, p.83]

    A refinement of the country/folk/reggae/rock amalgam The Mekons have pursued for years. [Oct 2002, p.108]

    The Mekons have found a placid pasture for old punks. [6 Sep 2002, p.86]
  6. A great place to start, a fine place to continue if you've been on the Mekons road for a bit, and if you are already a fan, this is essential.

Many a mystical personal experience for me has left me listening to some of their anger and outright hate (even if it's somewhat tongue in cheek) with soured results. Hey I'm still an Anarchist myself, but bitterness and bile of this nature gives such suchery a bad name. They just seem to be running over old ideas with diminishing returns. There are a few better moments, but I'm being charitable in giving this a 6. Expand
