"Good album, not a masterpiece" as one reviewer put it. Utterly wrong. A masterpiece and I don't say that lightly. The music of Mass exudes the concentrated essence of mania from every pore. Dark, intense, driven and disturbed. The raw, uncompromising and epic sound of Rema-Rema taken to the ultimate level. Music to soar to, Icarus flying too close to the sun. Let Mass into your world and you will burn.

Most people would hate this album with a passion. For the chosen few, this album is to die for.

My vinyl copy has a picture sleeve but a generic inner sleeve.
Did the original come with a printed inner sleeve? Anyone.

If The Fall entered a bar with Joy Division and Can... while listening to This Heat but keeping things more on the spacey side of things, you could basically listen to this record thinking about a jam session with the aforementioned bands. Althought the result aint so great here and there you can find dissonant guitars, (wannabe) crazed vocals & a sax that is thrown in the mix just for kicks and some decent songs. Good album, but not a masterpiece. Could have been better.
