5.0 out of 5 stars One of the five albums to take to a desert island, 11 Feb. 2006
This review is from: End Hits (Audio CD)
The decision to name this album one of the five albums that I would take to a desert island is entirely disputable. Not because End Hits is undeserving of 5 stars but because each Fugazi album is individually awesome, and to single out one was nearly impossible!
I chose End Hits in particular because for me, this album is Fugazi's Sgt. Pepper. Now I'm not sizing Fugazi to the Beatles musically, but I believe that this album marked a musical transcendence for the band. Like Revolver or Sgt. Pepper, this album is a bridge, a fusion of old and new where the bands musicianship and song writing has budded and developed. Where the song arrangements matured and the structuring grew richer and thicker. I won't attempt to categorize each track or compare and contrast them to other music and bands to help you the reader better identify with this album. Doing that would defeat the identity of the band and minimize the significance of their music. I will say this though; Fugazi is a rock band in the truest sense of the saying. They put their souls into what they do and what they take back is the ability to personally connect with their music and the talent to structure and perform it sans ego.
For those of you new to Fugazi or for those who have only heard the song "Waiting Room" I would not recommend this album to you. I would suggest starting from the beginning with 13 Songs and chronologically progressing forward until you find your favorite niche. Mine is right here with End Hits.
Fugazi's End Hits is truly one of the best albums of all time. With Fugazi it's really listeners choice, in my opinion every album is a classic. To a new comer this album will grow on you like a weed. A beautiful, hard hitting, guitar smashing, bass pumping, lyrically ambigous weed. Cause that's End Hits.
