While the blemishes hurt, and they can get pretty ugly, we can?t try and hide them. This is a critical document in popular music, though it may not be remembered that way. For me, it signals the end of an era. The gods of self-obsessed texture rock are gods no more, but hell, they can still make a beautiful mess.

Those stuttered, dancing snare lines, the guitar figures that spread out like clouds forming... sure, it's derivative, but all the same it's one of a kind. The vocals are breathy and sexual, the lyrics adolescent and naive. You can feel the party. And you can feel the drugs. Can't say it's not a masterpiece. 9.5/10

It's that snort you hear seconds before that Kiss cover kicks off, and that turnaround at the end of "Androgynous" that hits me every time like a flung filing cabinet or something. These songs come to me when I'm least expecting, and most in need. Late nights listening to the crushing sound of an answering machine. Walking crowded blocks to "Seen Your Video" and feeling okay no matter what the situation. It's hard to imagine that Paul Westerbe
