This blinding rerecording of the band’s 1983 album serves as a reminder of their honest-to-goodness r-o-c-k roots – a tough, raw, desert-punk outlier ready for reconsideration.

It’s the recording these songs deserve – live and thrumming with the energy of something like a husker du album played at half speed. Forget what you think you know about this band – we recommend this to you’re into the 80s and 90s US indie and punk underground and want join the dots. Plus, the title track is something of a lost classic. “In a long journey full of fascinating detours along the way, Giant Sand's first album was a rocking pit stop that's lively, smart, and full of nerve.” - allmusic
