"decipher the beautiful, somber lyrics (Andalusia, Red Yellow, Red Yellow!).  The Best Album of the entire 1990's?"

"so far ahead of it's time it's embarassing.  in a differnt league than the vaunted but comparitively ordinary 'Banana' album."

"The bitter end and blackest on a run of three GREAT albums.  Guitar work i'll be figuring out of years.  irreplicable tonality."

"'Blowin' Cool' (find a better bass intro) and 'Never Loose that Feeling' are particular notable.  The best stuff from this album isn't on it.  Find 'Planes over the Skyline'.  you'll see what i mean."

"Super, if thematically unsophisticated, pyrotechnic display.  Works great with a house full of people and a stack of crys- er-  cheap booze."

"Mature, dream-like, complex.  'Attached' is so good, it's funny.  As good as the deservingly adored 'Brown' album."

"Gotta put them in here somewhere.  This one plays better - 10 years later - than the fantastic 'Bleach' or hole-worn-through-it 'Nevermind'.  'Dive' is their very best."

"'Fatman' and 'Gyrate' rock as hard as anything ever recorded.  If 'Electric City' doesn't get you amped for a night of debauchery, you're probably not conscious."

"Very bright ray of light.  Fantastic chaos/cohesion of the instruments.  May not stand the test of time, but sure was exciting when released."

"US grassroot phenom.  Nearly exactly 'Grateful Dead meets Primus' (if you think about it).  Unique style, extremely accomplished chops, and ... FUN!"

"Bulletproof. The best from KC, due perhaps to brevity.  Relevant in any setting and mini zen-tutorial to boot.  You'll be humming the riffs one week out."

"pronounce '`aw-`tih-`cur' not 'oh-`tech-ruh'. more focused/accessible than abstruse Tri/Chiastic.  Jagged, difficult, experimental, great."

"Not really.  needed placeholder for CLOCKHAMMER (no asin).  Ohio power-trio who are Rush w/o the sci-fi or HM pretension.  That's asking for and getting a boat-load.  EBay for 1991's 'KLEINFELTER'."

"Much as i love 'Zen Arc' or anything else Husker, none of it's really listenable anymore.  This one dosen't suffer that way.  Insta-punkers Green-Day et.al. unwittingly owe everything to this album."

"I'd just like to mention that i've rediscoverd yes.  kick ass."

"Worlds better than more successful 'SuperUnknown' and not as good as the nearly perfect 'Down on the Upside'.  Gets my vote for 'My Good Eye'."
