Land Speed Record contains great music! Anyone could argue it doesn't, but they'd be wrong! If you don't like the fact that Husker Du started out as an intense hardcore punk band, you won't like this. Better just stick with the alternative pop-rock stuff they put out. Don't get me wrong, I like that too,(mostly) but Land Speed Record was their foundation and what got them to the dance. Just look at the intense, stark nature of the cover art. What kind of music would you expect? It screams harcore! And to say the music doesn't hold up over time is asinine. To this day, I have still not heard anything like it. Is the recording quality good? No. But it's not as bad as these other reviewers claim. It's live, raw, fast, emotional gut-bucket, hardcore rock-n-roll. To be honset, these 2 star reviews I've read piss me off. What a bunch of creeps. Gimmee a break! These guys rocked! I just wish there was more Husker Du material from this era.
