Most of my mates that weren't into death metal like I was, or who were rapidly transitioning post Nirvana had this album back then. I heard it on the radio, saw the videos for the singles. I don't think I've ever put it on to listen through till today. This is great.
i only have 3 of their LP's (ahem CD's ) but the is the best.
liked this at the time and still sounds good.
being a gateway band into hip hop for white kids was a roll they did brilliantly.
how a not very good hardcore punk* band in 1981/82 ended up having
a US #1 album in 1987 (the first rap band to become enormous) is one the
more bizarre music stories of the 1980's - if not ever.
