Editor's note: I still contend that this is one of the greatest alternative rock albums of the 80s. As good as anything by U2 or REM but it was lost in the shuffle of things as sometimes good records are. Plus none of the members of the band continued on in the industry after their second major release failed to generate much noise so it stands to reason that it was buried and never resurrected except in small circles around Detroit and various smatterings across the globe. I'm still bitter that the band is no more although they do a reunion show here and there. It would have been great to hear them 4 or 5 records into stardom. Ah- well.
