A quintessential post-hardcore album.

Great inventive and noisy guitarwork, driving rythem section, and manic vocals. The songs range from three-minute blasts to more sprawling and progressive songs that reach the nine minute mark; each with a different part that'll imbed itself in your brain- the bridge of "Caress", the ending screams in "Spikes to You", the breakneck speed of "Atom Jack"- and so on. New instrumental intricacy is discovered on almost every listen.

obviously this can be compared to Hot Snakes (what with the same Rick Froberg/John Reis thing going on), but to take it outside of band connections, I'd compare this to a more cathartic and ragged "In On The Killtaker" Fugazi- faster, more abrasive, and so on. Awesome!

I listened to the dlj albums out of order, maybe that wreck it for me; i don't know. When i can to listen to dlj's s/t album, i was a bit disappointed, i can't lie. this is surreal, rick's frantic vox, reis's whirrling guitar and mark trombinno's presence is felt more than ever. however it's just not up to the same qaulity of yank crime, i'm still reeling from that hit to my sternum (thanks rick). Buy it any it still kicks more ass than 99% of the other stuff out there.

The first Drive Like Jehu record just has something fantastic about it. Rick and John need no introduction; they are legends in the San Diego scene, and became so with this LP. And an LP it is indeed, with a 20 second gap between tracks 4 and 5 where one would flip the record over. It still amazes on CD though, and has a remarkably good recording quality, despite having been released in 1991. If you can stand the occasional punctuating scream and quiet strands of low guitar picking that extend for five minutes at a time, Drive Like Jehu will reward you with their genius.

succcccchhhhhhhhh a good record. Drive Like Jehu is a really underrated band. Even though this is such a good record, I still suggest buying Yank Crime first. It's too bad they were only around for such a short while. :-(

Math rock never sounded better! Never underestimate the importance of Drive Like Jehu's first album. Their style of long, calculated build-ups and emotional vocals would influence everyone from 1.6 Band to At the Drive-In to the Refused. One of the albums that would define what emo would become.

Before there was Refused or at the drive-in, there was Drive Like Jehu. Pretty much nothing compares to these guys because there haven't been that many bands this good since they broke up. Pick up this album and their other album, "Yank Crime," and see where all your favourite bands ripped everything off from. While you're at it, pick up both albums by Hot Snakes, and every Rocket From the Crypt album you can get your hands on - John Reis is a goddamn genious. I don't normally give 5 star reviews (in fact, I don't think I've ever given one to an album I bought off interpunk), but this one deserves 6 stars.

Wow, lots of energy on this record. Jehu features all-star producer Mark Trombino (Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182)on drums. This band was definitely doing their own thing. This San Diego band rocks from start to finish on this album blasting your ears with raw emotion. Hot Snakes and Rocket From the Crypt fans will love this record.
