I wonder if perhaps this band ended up being over-shadowed by Bob's political activism? Their debut eponymous album showed many signs or promise with some great songs, albeit being a little raw around the edges.
This second album retains the drive, energy and humour of the first, with a much more polished sound and 'complete' feel to it.
Put aside any bias of 'the persona of Bob' - this definitely stands the test of time and well worth a listen.
