This review is from: Double Nickels On The Dime (Audio CD)
You could be forgiven for thinking that dozens of tracks, all coming in at around a minute in length, will sound a bit limiting after a while. Prepare to change your mind during a listen to Double Nickels on the Dime, a classic album of intelligent and dynamic post-punk from a trio of very talented musicians. Recorded live and in one take, the interplay between the guitar, bass and drums is something to behold and the Minutemen manage to carve out considerable melody on top of the angular textures. Too many stand out tracks to mention - buy it for the sheer originality of the structures and the clever, powerful playing. Never has a minute sounded so good as with these guys.
