First and only Review?? This is a classic.

Not sure how much this review will matter, since I'm not sure who'll see it. If anybody curious happens by, and hasn't happened to listen to the old Wedding Present stuff, this album is tremendous. If you're young and want to know what REAL rock music was in the 80s, check this out. Not ready to commit to the whole album? Buy and download 'Kennedy' and 'Bewitched'...if you listen and it doesn't grab you, they you won't have to worry about listening to real music, and you can go back to whatever stuff you're subjecting yourself to now.

This album is garage-y, urgent, emotional, great. I dj-ed at one of THE college stations at the time, and I guarantee, this is one of the albums of the era. One of the strengths of Wedding Present is, if you like rock music, there are no dud songs here. The best ones are just supreme: Brassneck, No, Kennedy, Bewitched, Take Me. And the bonus EP that's been added (the last 4 songs) is wonderful. It has another version of Brassneck, produced by Steve Albini. Albini did their next full album, Seamonsters, which is also worth checking out. The two together are the peak of Wedding Present, one of the great great bands lost in the shuffle of the then-oncoming Seattle/grunge scene.

Thanks, iTunes, for adding their stuff. Now just get the still-missing Watusi album on here. And get the original release dates corrected on all of them.

I bought this on tape, then a CD. Unfortunately, lost both of them to wear and tear, and ex girlfriend taking the cd. Now, once again I listen to the rattle and chimes of this beautiful album once again. Never get's old.

A Favorite hidden Gem

Honest lyrics, punching guitar, and consuming melodies. This is a classic which must be added to your collection.
