I’m not going to lie and say these are essential Wipers albums. There are great songs that are ultimately marred by some weird production choices. The drums have weird 80s reverb on them, the guitars are too clean sounding. I can’t help thinking everything could have been flatter sounding, or done with natural room reverb instead. Dunno. I figure Wipers is Wipers and deserves available decent rips.
Remember, this is not the place to start with the Wipers. For that, you absolutely need THE BOX SET.
