A two-record set of live material recorded between 1980-82, this is as good as Blow'n Chunks and essential for born-again Flipperphiles. The sound is messy and grimy, but that enhances the experience, but it's also easy to see that Album was without a doubt their benchmark record and that even the good material released after it (like this LP) couldn't equal its high (low?) standards. ~ John Dougan
