    The All Music Review is complete nonsense. Go Forth happens to strike myself as being the Les Savy Fav album that resembles Fugazi the least. Not only for obvious reasons like the absence of the 2nd guitar, synthesizer, and a lack of a political stance, but for subtler reasons like the overall groove-ability (a key trait Fugazi has never had) throughout the entire listen as well.

Les Savy Favs earlier work (such as Cat & the Cobra) is a bit more reminiscant to Fugazi, however it is not entirely. While a couple tracks on Go Forth miss their target, (Daily Dares; No Sleeves) the album as a whole presents a quirky array of Tim Harrington's derranged songwriting talent. Expand

    Although very much like fugazi in it's musical level, tim harrington gives it a slight optional tone of reality. This CD, go forth, doesn't exactly make you feel like you're listening to fugazi, but it is a feel that i'm sure not many groups can make you come to realize.

    Go Forth is addictively oblique stuff, veering joyously between budget Gary Numan, scene elder statesmen Fugazi and the Pixies in their surf-rock period. Shredding instinct and convention along the way, Harrington has forged something compellingly original here. [Nov 2001]

    The finest moments are when it quiets down, as on th soaring, synthesizer-tinged "No Sleeves." [23 Nov 2001, p.82]
  3. At this point they have worked through their formative stage, and prove themselves capable of delivering a solid album with diverse songwriting and a consistent style. And even if that style sounds derivative and summons the inevitable Dischord comparisons, it's impressive nonetheless.
