Big Black | Songs About Fucking | 180g Vinyl LP

It's hardly fair to judge art based on the artist's personality, but Steve Albini-- outspoken, unapologetic, nearly ascetic-- is difficult to separate from the boundaries pushed (of drum machines, guitar tone, and good taste) in Big Black. Maybe, in this case, it's perfectly fair. We need someone unafraid to speak their mind, unafraid to say something ugly, to make music as singularly unloveable and original as this. The viciousness, baiting, and cynicism of Songs About Fucking is a reaction to every placid, politically correct, safe gesture we're bombarded with daily. The iconic front cover image, making the unutterable visually appealing, fits perfectly-- Hollywood and the ad companies can keep making beautiful shit; Big Black made the inverse.
