NOMEANSNO - 0 + 2 = 1 @224kbps

Nomeansno started out as a sort of drum-and-bass band from Victoria, BC. They are simply superb, great lyrics and a growling bass, exquisite percussions. I'm a Nomeansno fan for years and saw them live in Belgium, thrilling! This cd is a gem, but, so is all their stuff. Nomeansno are the most criminally under-rated band in the history of rock. Buy this and find out how good they are. 0 + 2 = 1 is a more-than-usually accessible mixture of the catchy (Now), the amusing (Every Day I Start To Ooze) and the disturbed (Ghosts). Highly recommended. And then go and buy Wrong...Simply masterful. Everyone who dissects music apppreciates the nuances of music - we critique everything we hear. When an apex has been reached (Beethoven's Ninth), we know it immediately. But as much as we appreciate the cognitive details in the final cut, it is the emotional force that sets the blood aflow. Side 2 of this baby (Mary, Joyful Reunion, etc.) is PERFECTION - pure, raw yet disturbingly refined, malevolent and fast, the insanity of the unknown coupled with grit your teeth, shove the safety pin through your cheek, down a shot of whatever happens to be available, punch a hole in the wall and get ready to take the "beater" out for some "alley-can bashin".......If you're not bleedin' by the end of side two, you don't know no @#$%!
