There is no duff track on the album.It is awesome,awesome,awesome.
Released with distribution problems the band toured for ages to support themselves.The gigs on this tour left me feeling euphoric.
I cannot and will not review any tracks except one because they are all stupendous.
Age of Greed however has to be one of the most musically and lyrically aggressive songs I have ever heard.It will leave you feeling quite drained after you hear it.
Geordie's guitar is perfect throughout.
Truly "the sound of the earth vomiting".

When I bought this album in 1982 I hated it.Now it is one of my favourites.It is true that the additional track could have been accompanied by Sun Goes Down, Birds Of A Feather etc. but you get them on Ha! I just add the related files to my iPod.
Revelations is a brutal record in every way. LSD featured heavily at the time( as folklore would have it) hence the strangeness of it all.Dregs is basically a studio jam where Jaz just makes the words up.
It took me 15 years to get into this record and I do not know why because it is awesome.
Standouts are Empire Song, Chop Chop and Chapter III.

I bought album when it came out in 1980-because I liked the sleeve!I have been a fan ever since.
No two albums sound the same so checking out their back catalogue will yield many surprises.One thing you must do is see them live.You will never forget the experience I promise you.
Its also worth noting that the band play 75% of this album at every gig.Honestly there is so much garbage out there.Dive in.
