Matrix / Runout (Side A): NR-14410-A THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER JE NRP
Always thought this record was their most interesting they've put out, primarily because of the strong Motorhead undercurrent that drives all these songs - Indeed, this isn't a typical Minor Threat record, this isn't even a typical D.C. record (although the melody and dynamics of D.C. are there); Sonically, this belongs more to the UK style of Hardcore seen in UK82, however the usage of melody and dynamics are rooted in D.C. leading to Minor Threats most fast-paced and hard-hitting record while still keeping to it's sophisticated and introspective roots that shaped the D.C. scene. A record that sits comfortably next to Rites of Spring and G.B.H.
P.S. This isn't metallic if anyone was thinking that simply because of the Motorhead. Motorhead is anything but metal if you look deeper into it. ;)
