Produced by REM guitarist Peter Buck, the politically biting, ominous song cycle of this group's mostly acoustic third LP solidifies their stature as uncompromising and original founders of a new hybrid of American music -- even if the scale here tips considerably toward the latter half of the punk/country fusion. Considering that it was released during the ascent of the grunge movement, the acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins and shuffling tunes make a powerfully original statement that still resonates with untold social and musical awareness. - Nate Cavalieri
