I know most people will prefer the faster thrash-n-bash tumult of the first FU's album, "Kill For Christ." And while I, too, love the first album, when I wanna hear the FU's, I find myself reaching for "My America" as the songwriting is just a bit more catchy.

There's a cool vinyl reissue on a Belgian label that combines both albums on one LP. That might be the best way to go if you are an FU's newbie. It should be a lot cheaper than hunting down the originals, too.
