    That's only one song.

    But that album was a game-changer for me.

    For my money, X's "See How We Are" might be one of the best sociopolitical songs ever written.

    ...and I'm not even a big fan of that kind of thing.

    Billy Zoom made me want to play a Duo Jet...
    Their new album, "Alphabetland", is also pretty good!

    One of my favorite albums ever. It's held up all these years for me... it's still exciting to listen to today. I was 16 when it came out, and saw them for the first time right after the album was released. I lived in Southern CA, so I got to see them many times, through different phases of their career. Their first four albums are great, but this one is the best.

    The first copy of it I had was one that I borrowed from my girlfriend, who bought it as soon as it came out. The original versions of the albums had inner sleeves with the lyrics in Exene's cool lettering style. I must have left it sitting out, and my mom pulled it out and read the lyrics and was horrified. When I told her it was my girlfriend's record, she was even more horrified.
