iTunes Review

A compilation of Fugazi’s first two EPs, 13 Songs is a perfect example of uncompromising, post-hardcore punk. Ian MacKaye takes the energy of his former band, Minor Threat, and slows it down to a manageable tempo with singer/guitarist Guy Picciotto providing an impassioned vocal counterpoint. But it's still raw power that they rely on—their playing is tight and brutal. And their determination to maintain full control of their career is reflected in these precise, hair-raising, spine-tingling performances.

A Landmark in Music History

There are very few albums in music history where you can truly say that music was definitely different after this album was released than before. No album before this mixed the dissonance oF No Wave, the agression and politically charged lyrics of hardcore, the grooviness and experimentation of dub, and the danceability of 70's funk, and made it seem this seemless. This is on top of creating the blueprint for DIY/indie music to this day. This album is probably the most straightforward of the Fugazi catalogue, but also the moodiest and possibly one of the catchiest. Guy's passionate howl is the perfect foil to Ian MacKaye's angry growl. A must in the collection of any indie music collection

Maybe instead of chirping so much, just say you don't like it because you cannot relate to the lyrics.

If history is kind to Fugazi, their records won't be overshadowed by their reputation and methods of operation. Instead of being known for their community activism, five-dollar shows, ten-dollar CDs, and resistance to mainstream outlets, they will instead be known for their intelligent songwriting and undeniably proficient musicianship, which drew from their roots in Washington, D.C. hardcore, as well as post-punk and dub reggae. Songs like "Waiting Room" and "Suggestion," as well as albums such...
