This is another outstanding Minus 5 album AND it comes packaged with a Young Fresh Fellows album so how can you go wrong? It's out of print, but since it was on a big major, it's really easy to find—I found a shrinkwrapped copy in a used bin for 4 dollars once—keep in mind, for TWO full-length albums. So, yeah—it's outstanding, it comes with ANOTHER outstanding record and it's cheap and easy to find. What the hell are you waiting for? By the way, "Got You" is one of the best songs EVER written by ANYONE, let alone The Minus 5. Even if that were the only good song on here, this record would be worth, like, 50 bucks just to hear it—but this entire record is good! "The Rifleman" (ostensibly about the TV show) is really great, too, as is the rocker "Ghost Tarts Of Stockholm". Also, check Ken Stringfellow's (of The Posies) awesome vocals on the magnificent "A Thousand Years Away". Oh my god, you need this record. I don't care who you are, or what you like: YOU. NEED. THIS. RECORD. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
