ARTICLES OF FAITH - give thanks (CD) Bitzcore #01678 1992

Just to complete the previous posting: the first LP rerelease on Bitzcore (originally by Reflex in 1984) with a slightly redone cover layout. Again with songs which are not on any other record or even on one of the Alternative Tentacles compilations! Those two songs are also from the "wait" recording session and are nice; especially "angry man" which has a dub feeling in it.
The album itself is way more diversified or let's even call it experimental than the previous stuff. Many tempo changes, lead guitar solos (but not annoying) and the production by Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü make this a very interesting record and for me it also doesn't lack power like many others stated. The calm parts in "hollow eyes" are just beautiful, really predate the later Chicago indie guitar rock!

By the way: if you like the calmer second LP, make sure you check out Jones Very.
