is indeed one of the best top-to-bottom albums around... I never get tired of listening to it. That said, I still consider Beaster
to be Bob Mould's/Sugar's best work. As I'm guessing you'd agree, it's definitely not for everyone and it's not the kind of album that you'd listen to all the time (I think you have to be in a certain kind of mood). Still, that album is about as powerful and raw as they come, with layers and layers and layers of sound - all of which works - reeling you in.
I clearly remember this being one of the CD's that I played often during the late night/early morning hours while racing in RAAM or the Furnace Creek 508 ultra cycling races. I figured that if this didn't get me jacked up nothing would. "JC Auto" never ceases to blow me away; it's one of the most angry, yet passionate, songs I've ever heard.
