I’ve probably posted about this album before, but I’m going to do it again. I don’t know why I didn’t fall in love with it earlier, but the more I listen to it the more I appreciate just how chaotically energetic and life affirming the whole thing is. It’s the kind of music that makes you want to do potentially dangerous but awesome things like start a fight club or ride a bike off of somebody’s roof. It’s chock full of references to American history too, which I personally appreciate a lot. These guys seem to get the spirit of our history as a nation more than most US History teachers I’ve studied under. It’s a crazy, irreverent, violent, rebellious, sprawling tribute to all our wonderful faults and failures, along with some of our victories.
