4.5 superbAdam Turner-Heffer | August 29th 06

'Background Music' was all the inital energy, passion and quite frankly, repent for music, all balled up into one 30 minute burst, and is still considered "one of the fastest albums to ever come out of Punk Rock."
Harsh vocals, satirical lyrics, fast paced rhythms, this album for many is the "essential punk album" because not only was it very indivisual for it's time and genre (coming out of the Boston "tough-guy" hardcore scene) but also because it proved that GUTG have a very unique ability for writing very memorable songs, regardless of genre and style.
