Although this isn't the most fantastic thing ever recorded, Snot created a sound all their own, unfortuantely cut tragically short by the death of their lead singer. I'm surprised no one has review this album and will have to get to it when I have some time. This was a pretty underated band for the time, considering the amount of nonsense coming out, this was sort of cool nonsense
This is the only Snot LP with Lynn Strait on vocals. After his death in a car accident in 1998, the band released a second studio album with various vocalists as well as a live album. But while this self-titled album displays a few very good hardcore punk songs, the whole effort comes off as a very mixed bag. The short instrumentals, while showing a bit of promise, are underdeveloped and serve little purpose other than filler. A few forays here and there into ska and alternative territory all result in major stumbles. As immature and mindless as the lyrics are (although the Peckinpah reference is admirable), the catchiness and aggression of a few of the tracks at least make Snot a half-way enjoyable listen.
