Classic incendiary rock'n'roll masterpiece from the DC band that went on to become the Make Up. Exhausting, relentless and inspiring. Shame it passed most of the world by. Long live the Ulysses aesthetic! Destroy America!

Pick-ax through the temple 21 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This thing is intensely unique. Combining elements of DC's straight-edge scene (Minor Threat, Fugazi et al) and New York's best noise artists (Sonic Youth, Richard Hell) with excessive socio-political diatribes, Nation of Ulysses create an album singular in its urgency. The CD struck me like a letter bomb, tempting me with an ambiguous spoken monologue in the first track, and then blowing up in my face with "A Comment on Ritual" (my vote for standout track). I can only wonder why these guys didn't get more attention. Were they too dangerous? In any case, I think if they continued, they would have spontaeously combusted within a matter of months.

music to take over the world with!!! 14 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rhetoric beyond compare! Combines Situationist dogma with howling, American noise rock. Any album that has a song title,"The Kingdom of Heaven Must Be Taken By Storm" has got to be good! A must buy! Good punk rock without usual clap-trap.

Hey babe if this was Nuremberg... 24 Mar 2004
By S. Colmus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the truly unique bands to emerge from the early-90s Dischord scene with their statement album. NOU can be writen off for any number of things: their penchant for sophmoric noise, comic-politico stance, overstated haircuts and suits, smarmy didacticism. Yet somehow, they overcame all of that and produced a album thats incendiary, informed and confrontational all at once. A true beam of inspiration.

Masterpiece. 22 Nov 1999
By James Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
About one minute into this album, you get kicked in the face. Leaps and bounds from the inferior "13 Point Plan to Destroy America," every song here, from the sex-crazed "Hickey Underworld," to the raging "Maniac Dragstrip" is a bona-fide anthem. If you've never heard N.O.U. before, think a quirkier, noisier Fugazi without Ian Mackaye's vocals. I just wish this band stuck around long enough to implement their plan.
