This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
One of the finest records to ever be released in any genre, 'Repeater' remains - nearly 20 years later - a testament to all the things that were best about alternative music before it's painful commercialization took place in the early nineties.

Built on the interplay between some truly incredible drumming and bass-playing and guitars that burn with both ferocity and focus, the album moves from the almost playful to the downright intense, although most would probably note the holy trinity of 'merchandise', 'Sieve-fisted find' and 'Styrofoam' as the three tracks that not only define the album but the early Fugazi sound.

Like Big Black's 'Atomizer' and Sonic Youth's 'Sister' this is an album that anyone with even the slightest interest in punk needs to own.

By the way, 'Repeater' IS the correct album name. '3 songs' was an E.P that became bundled with the album some time in the mid nineties.

Beyond being a masterpiece. Truly transcendent. Do yourself a favour and get it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 90s hardcore punk gem, 16 Aug. 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
Fugazi opened the the decade of the 1990s with a blistering collection of abstracted theatrical and politically committed pieces of thundering dissonant sonic hardcore punk. The band was led by the phenomenal Ian MacKaye, an artist seemingly guided by an otherwordly force who released a palpable psychological tension and Wagnerian intensity against society - a sound that was nevertheless more cathartic than destructive.

In this regard, 'Repeater' displays a zen-like aspect which contrasts with a phenomenal rhythm section that heightens the tension of the music underlying the spasmodic nature of the playing. 'Repeater' was notable for creating a new dramatic musical language of expression to reveal the inner consiousness of its lead protaganist not heard since the days of Jim Morrison.

Repeater remains a classic and timeless piece of hardcore punk that is arguably the greatest of its genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inner ear delight, 11 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
This album (Repeater) has to rate as one the top 10 best albums of all time, Fugazi's mastery of catchy tunes is hypnotic and awe inspiring/jaw dropping.
Do your ears a favour, and enjoy the the sounds of tight, crisp drumming, 3 dimensional basslines, gut-wrenching guitar work, and authorative vocals. 'Nuff said !

5.0 out of 5 stars Love them guitars, 28 Nov. 2002

This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
Entirely and utterly convincing punk-based rock, seperated from the rest by fabulous guitar sounds and intelligence. The sort of combination of rawness and musical expertise, that can only bring a smile to your face. Simply produced and powerfully performed, this sets Fugazi ahead of the competition by a long way. In the face of the crass over-produced pop charts and the fuzzy meddlings of the so-called New Music, Fugazi take things back to basics and give their songs space to live and breath. This is the definitive set, where other issues might be patchy, this never flags or fails.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece from that hardcore legend Ian MacKaye, 29 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
On first listen, this an average post-hardcore album. On second listen, this is a masterpiece.
Repeater + Three Songs (to give it's full name) starts strongly with the catchy Turnover, and then goes into the jazz-tinged title track.
This is followed by one of the best intstrumentals I have ever heard (and I've heard a lot!) and then the album's two best tracks - Merchandise and Blueprint.
Merchandise is the Fugazi song everyone has heard of - with its phenomenal guitar riffs, great chorus, and Ian MacKaye yelling "You are not what you own!", this is song is that put Fugazi on the 'must-buy' map.
Blueprint is more melodic, but still filled with the same fury from Merchandise. I think very much that a modern day pop artist stole the tune from Blueprint and made that depressing Christmas number one.
Anyway, to wrap things up, the rest of the album is also amazing and 'Repeater + Three Songs' definately deserves to have a place on your record shelf.
BUY IT!
P.S. If you like this, buy Pailhead's EP 'Trait' or Minor Threat's 'Complete Discography'. They both feature Fugazi frontman Ian MacKay and are both amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total excellence, 11 Feb. 2002

Amazon Customer (London United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Repeater + 3 Songs (Audio CD)
I'm soo upset that it took me 10 years to find this. I am big fan of ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and someone recommended I should hear this. It is so rock and so well thought out. Blueprint is the standout track for me but the first three just hit like a wave of greatness. GET IT!!!
