It has been very frustrating that I haven't been able to get my hands on a physical copy of this album since I sold my vinyl back in 98'. More polished and better produced than their earlier album with plenty more melodies in the songs as well and without the extended noodlings of the previous album, a more concise musical statement. to some this was a sell out, but I love this album just as much as Volume One, still plenty of great guitar riffs and still a dark shading to their songs. Probably the nearest comparison would be early Killing Joke. God I wish I could blast this much louder as I write, but my headphones are broken and Mrs. Roddus is asleep. I rate this 5/5 and you can actually get a digital copy of this album Here, until someone actually has the good sense to release it on CD.
