I've only got the self-titled EP and Margin Walker, both of which I love but for some reason have never bought anything else by them. First listen now and it's hitting the spot, great balance of catchy songs and real fucking fire. And @Hector Grey is right about the guitars, this is the sort of thing I aspire to.

I knew a load of people years ago who were into punk and hardcore, So i would hear the name Fugazi a lot. I expected them to be another hamfisted punk band. I was pleasantly surprised. Fugazi were an interesting listen. Good players, not obvious songs at all, weird grooves. I tend to prefer Guy (it's pronounced Gee) Picciotto's voice. I have 13 songs & Repeater. I'm just listening to IOTKT for the first time now. First impression, it's aged really well, but not very hooky......

I'm at the halfway point, minor complaint, the 3 or 4 minutes of noise and feedback on 23 beats off, I find that really tedious. next song...

This is an amazing album. I know every second of it and I love it to bits. It makes me absolutely feel like an old man to listen to it, though. I remember studying every microscopic detail of it for weeks on end. First got a copy of it on tape from Mr. Stephen Doyle, late of this parish. Fugazi basically changed a lot of the ways that I not only listened to music, but that I actually lived my life (if that’s not too dramatic a statement), so I suppose there’s a case to be made that this was the most important album I ever listened to. Well, this or Red Medicine. Or End Hits. Or eventually the Argument. Basically all the stuff Pete doesn’t like. Also I always thought that the handclaps in ‘Public Witness Program’ are like a hidden doo-wop jewel in the middle of a raging burst of guitar frenzy. Jesus I love this album.

I loved them at the time,but that lyric always floated around.
I find my interest in Fugazi decreasing at an alarming rate.

I could listen to 13 songs and repeater for ever but anything after that just seems to have lost something. Tunes, maybe?

Last time I listened to it,I seem to recall the good bits seemed to be in the wrong song or something.

Wow. I remember that you loved this but I didn't know how much. I'm finding it a bit underwhelming now tbh

Gave this one full listen today, not sure I'd want to listen again.
Sweet and Low and Last Chance for a slow dance are the only things to catch my ear.
The playing is quality overall, but there's not enough tunes for me. The "vocals" are awful throughout.
