The Lawrence Arms debut on Fat is also one of their best records. The way things flow between Brendan's and Chris's songs is just incredible. The lyrics, as expected, are top notch and the song writing is just as good. There's a reason why this is one of the best bands currently going.

Another great Lawrence Arms album. I think it is my least favorite of their 3 releases on Fat, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It has plenty of great songs on it, just not quite as great of songs as the Greatest Story Ever Told or Oh! Calcutta!

This album is good, yeah... definitely beats the shit out of the cheesy-as-shit "Greatest Story Ever Told"...

However, "Guided Tour Of Chicago" and "Ghost Stories" is where the real gold is. Or is it? Oh! Calcutta?

Start to finish... front to back, this is the best recording the Lawrence Arms ever produced... PERIOD. "Porno and Snuff Films" is a fantastic way to begin a record, it really sets the tone for what follows. Brendan's vocals, are so scratchy, yet melodic that theres no way that you can restrain yourself from rocking out whenever the guy opens his mouth into a mic. Chris's vocals are more coherant, but not as good in my opinion. The guy can write some fucking tunes no question, but his vocals really don't fit the band's style very well. Either way, I highly reccomend this to any Chicago punk fan... if you don't have it already.

I've heard a little Lawrence Arms before I bought this CD and i loved it. Some songs are extremely catchy and others will grow on you. Overall a great CD.

This is definitely a bit of a deviation from their previous sound, but that isn't a bad thing. It's a little more smooth and poppy, but who cares? This album is fucking amazing. Every song goes together perfectly. Chris's smooth croon and Brendan's gritty tone, along with melodic yet driving guitars, perfectly fitting basslines, and impressive drumming, make this one of the best punk albums in recent years. You never get tired of it. Seriously, if you don't own this, buy it!
