:thumbsup: :thumbsup: probably my favorite watt record overall, but it's heady, and musically it's all over the place (i'd maybe call it a sea shanty-jazz-punk opera?).

minutemen records are more immediately accessible, even if they are far more monochromatic in tone, you know?

WM, do you wanna listen to early Pavement or recent Malkmus? I'd say use that as your guide, their sonic/musical progressions are fairly similar.

Trag, engine room is great. I’m surprised at how many songs I recognized.

I'm listening to '...Engine Room' for the first time right now. It's the first Watt record I've heard, actually. He's a monster on the bass, and Nels Cline is insane.

I'm not sure that I agree with the 'punk' tag, but what else can you call it?
