Album Review

The list of bands whose second albums are, contrary to usual practice, even more stripped-down, noisy, and inaccessible than their debuts is not a particularly long one: the Velvet Underground's White Light/White Heat, the Stooges' Fun House, the Damned's Music for Pleasure, and a handful of others.

Fans of the very early Fall, Amon Düül, Crass, and other difficult-listening acts should easily be able to get behind this.
