This LP remains, in my humble opinion, the best A3 set and is likely to remain so given the recent degredation in their records quality. Goddamnit is a work packed with youth and alcohol fuelled tales of Skibas then existence. Kicking off with the incendiary 'Cringe' all the way through to the broken heart lament of 'Sorry Bout That', this record rarely takes its foot off the pedal or slips from a postion marked 'classic', though one or two tracks are notably inferior for me, such as 'My Little Needle'. However, 'Clavicle' is worth the money alone an absolute beast of a track highlighting A3s lyrical genius and knack for writing knockout melodic punk.
Whilst many fans might consider one of the next two records superior to this one, (surely no-one could possibly argue for Good Mourning or Crimson) I would beg to differ. 'Goddamnit' might sound like it was recorded in a barn by comparison to their later, slicker efforts, but thats all part of the many charms to be found here.
If you're into melodic punk then, seriously, you have to own this. Its so good its worth buying twice to have one spare for the inevitable day that the first ceases to work due to playing it to death. A better debut I challenge you to find.
