Kleptomania is an awesome album, never finished but none the worse for it, you barely notice the 'lack' of production, just great songs with raw and brilliant energy, the first 2 tracks, Getting Your Way and Slipping Away are one of the best 1-2 opening punches of any album in history, and Getting Your Way Sounds like U2 IMAGINED VERTIGO TO SOUND IN THEIR HEADS, SCABROUS RAW, POWERFUL BUT MELODIC AS HELL, AND SO IT CONTINUES THROUGH THE ALBUM, AWESOME TRACK FOLLOWS AWESOME TRACK, AND THE OTHER 2 DISCS ARE BRILLIANT TOO, MUCH RECOMMENDED! THIS ALBUM WAS MY ALBUM OF THE YEAR FOR TWO YEARS RUNNING, AND FAR FROM ITS PREMISE AS A BUNCH OF DEMOS, SOUNDS REALLY COHESIVE AS AN ALBUM AND FLOWS BEAUTIFULLY, A GREAT COMPANION AND EQUAL IN QUALITY TO THEIR FIRST TWO ALBUMS... GO INVESTIGATE!!! :)
