Freaking awesome!

This was the album that drew me into one of the best bands I've ever heard. I've got over a thousand CDs, several hundred LPs, not to mention tons of mp3s, so I'm not saying this lightly. This band hails from Seattle and they were making music before the Seattle sound became the latet big thing. This album simply rocks. "Bill Challenger" is by far the best instrumental I've heard and it cuts perfectly into "Parts". "Gone to the Moon" is a perfect pop-punk rock sounding song. The clash of pop sounding music with punk rock/hard rock guitars is an awesome contrast that I must admit took a few listens to get used to. Once I did, I picked up many of their other albums and I've never been disappointed. Some of the songs are mellow, like the introspective "When I'm Old" which has a nice haunting sound at the end. "They Don't Care" is a good rocking anthem for those that got dumped on, stepped on, kicked out of the way.

If you like this, other albums to check out: "New Mansions of Sound", "Answer the Phone Dummy", "Day That Didn't Exist", "Alone in a Furniture Warehouse", and "Here They Are Live at the Crocodile Shop".

One of The Best Albums of The 90's

A lot of Seattle bands made it big, sadly Fastbacks weren't one of them, but they were certainly held in high esteem by their peers and the fans who knew them.
Everyone of their albums is great, but Zucker is their Hope Diamond, a Punk/Pop Masterpiece that impresses you more with each listen. Twenty years later and this album still sounds fresh. A must for any rotation.
