We gave it an A-

On this reissue from 1988, these Anglo-Irish mood-enhancers insist that love is hopeless even as the passion of their playing — the rafter-shaking guitar chords, the baleful vocals — attests to their faith in romance, betrayal, and dizzy crushes. They nearly bury their somber melodies beneath surface noise. But unearthing the tunes is part of the listening pleasure.
