If you were into the #90s #alternative #grunge music scene in #stjohns #backintheday you likely hung out at #junctions on #Mcmurdos Lane. If you asked 1000 people who spent time there, this album would definitely be considered to be the de facto sound track of the era. (and if you were lucky enough to be presented with one of these cherished and rare GOLD Side Door Passes, it meant not only had you been knighted, but you were also immortal.) Standing at Bar 1 on the main floor while #killinginthenameof played (loudly) upstairs you could watch the ceiling move about 4 inches up and down above your head as everyone on the dance floor WENT COMPLETELY APESHIT. Especially on #reddog Wednesday’s!
An aptly named self titled album that was just then beginning of the politically charged rants from Zach de la Rocha. It’s chock full of memorable and heavy guitar riffs from @tommorello and and hard hitting percussion from @bradwilk . In restrospect, listening to many of the lyrics today it’s as if #RATM had already seen the future, as there are numerous warnings of the dangers of political parties aligning with corporate interests that’s so prevalent in the USA today.
This is a great pressing, brilliant crashes, crisp cracks of the snare, no vocal sibilance to be found anywhere. Freq response is excellent, minimal surface noise. **********************************
