EDITORS’ NOTES

Jane Doe marked the full flowering of Converge’s sound: The pace of punk and complexity of heavy metal, as brutal as a jackhammer and as featherlight as bebop. From the minute-long opening salvo of “Concubine” through the twin landmines of “Fault and Fracture” and “Distance and Meaning” and the aching grandeur of the title track, Jane Doe doesn’t just refresh an old sound, it finesses what at the time was an entirely new one—screaming not out of anger, but out of heartache.
