Customer Reviews


Probably the finest and most succinct album from this underappreciated band. The musicianship is superb, the song writing is crisp and original, the tempo varied from song to song but flowing as a whole album. This is Jawbox at their finest and, unfortunately, at their end. I especially love the drumming from Zack Barocas - damn fine. Some have accused this album of being too "slick" in production but I bet those complainers never heard them live. An amazing album from an amazing band.

"Mirrorful", "Livid", "Iodine", "Won't Come Off" and "Desert Sea" are my favorite songs on the album, but they are all pretty good. "Absenter" isn't really a 9:22 long song. After a silent gap, there is an excellent cover of Tori Amos' "Cornflake Girl" waiting to be heard.

Scrutinized for leaving D.C.'s beloved Dischord for a major label -- they were the first to do so -- Jawbox nonetheless released...
