Yeah I go on about them a lot, but Leaves Turn Inside You is a masterpiece, and the remaster sounds SO GOOD:
They are a special band, no doubt. If I was into vinyl I would totally get all these box sets.
...someone said 'if i was into CD's I would totally get these box sets' they would be ridiculed for crimes of elitism.
Nothing beats the stuff up to Repitition imo but it's still all better than 99% of other music
would be my favourite record if it wasn't for Leaves Turn Inside You, it is their best album in terms of "their sound" but the way they pushed everything out of the stratosphere
sorry dunno why I got bored of my own post there
is it as good as the good ones?
Challenge for Civilised Society is probably their weakest other than the self-titled debut, but it's worth re-visiting as a companion piece to Leaves as it was them taking a run up of sorts at their absolute masterpiece.
leaves is great also though, dunno if i've heard the others
The self-titled is scrappy, and Challenge is an experiment that doesn't really work, but the whole run up to Repetition - Fake Train, New Plastic Ideas and The Future of What - are all very much worth checking out an arguably get better with each one (I'd probably put NPI just above TFOW but there's very little between them).
Love Leaves Turn Inside You but never got a vinyl copy. I quite like Challenge for a civilised society also but it's not a patch on the other albums.
Civilised does end amazingly though, Lifetime Achievement Award and What Went Wrong </33333
I thought Unwound were just a shit hardcore band in the vein of Biohazard/Madball
then I thought that was Unsane but I've just looked at their wiki and it utrns out they're a noise rock band?
I am checking this album out today though
only that you have a chance to rectify it now
