Well I disagree there, I rate CTTE and Fragile just a tad higher than Relayer.

Anyway, some ones missed.







73 was a crazy year.

I'm actually listening to Yes Sir, I Will as type this. I hadn't listened to it in a while and this thread inspired me to throw it in the old CD player again. My feelings about it haven't changed much since last time I listened to it. It's not louder than other hardcore albums, it's not noisier, it's not faster, but it does seem more directionless. It has some decent moments here and there but overall I do still find it pretty inaccessible.
Musically Crass are almost closer to noise rock than to punk, so I would recommend bands like Big Black, Unwound, Melt Banana and The Boredoms if you're looking for something along the same lines. Yes Sir, I Will is pretty much a long political diatribe with the music coming in a far second, so yes, the music itself is completely directionless, but the lyrics are so pointed that it gets unbearable to listen to. Penis Envy is a much, much better album, where the message takes second seat to the music. Of course a lot of people (read: punks) don't like it because of the female vocals and probably prefer hearing about anarchy than feminism, something that is actually relevant to their misogynistic lives.

No? I'd consider Joy Division one of the best bands of all time.

Yeah, I like Big Black, Unwound and Melt Banana. The Boredoms are yet another of those bands for me that I've wanted to check out for a long time but never got around to getting anything by. Any recommendations on a good album to start with?

I'll have to check out Penis Envy, it sounds like it would be up my alley. I certainly don't mind music having a message, but it does annoy me when the political screeds (or religious screeds or whatever) are placed ahead of making good music.

That's weird. It seems like most people at least like "Love Will Tear Us Apart".

Where you went wrong:

1. Bjork isn't Swedish
2. Racism is silly
3. Sexism is silly
4. Bjork isn't inaccessible; not liking something isn't the same as inaccessible
