This is Screeching Weasel at their best. If you're buying a Screeching Weasel album for the first time go for this one. It is so good and you never get sick of it. Ben sounds great. Every song is a classic. Buy this CD!

From the opening chords of this pop-punk blueprint, it is very clear that Screeching Weasel went through some changes during their brief hiatus after BoogadaBoogadaBoogada. Gone is the same old, same old pseudo-hardcore blasts that were all over their first two Lps. In its stead, is a bouncy, melodic, keyboard accented sing a long that lasts for all of its 30 minute glory.

But don't let the infectious melodies fool you, this isn't all bubble gum pop. Sure, there are fractured love songs like Guest List, Veronica Hates Me and Making You Cry, but there are also some cerebral oriented lyrics in here too. Science of Myth explores the relative merits of Religion and Science, Slogans plays like an outsider's national anthem, and My Brain Hurts is designed for anyone with a D.I.Y. attitude.

This album invented a genre that gave birth to many uninteresting imitators, but this, the original, is proof that pop-punk can't be written off as mindless drivel for the retarded. If you don't get it, you don't get it, and I say "Why don't you go away?"

This is quite simply a masterpiece. It's pretty close to a perfect punk album, and the only thing that could improve it would be more songs. I have every Screeching Weasel song in one form or another, but this is one CD that I can listen to over and over and it always makes me feel awesome. I consider it an absolutely essential record for anyone who likes punk music.

I would have to say that is one of my top ten favorite albums of all time, maybe that's because this is the album that got me into Screeching Weasel. If you are looking for REAL pop punk (where it's more punk than pop) get this is CD. Every song is wonderful! Hell, some of them even make you think, how'd that happen? So if you are new to Screeching Weasel start with this cd for sure. Some of my favorite tracks are: Teenage Freak Show, The Science of myth (my personal favorite on the CD), what we hate, and the great cover of "I can see clearly". Oh hell, this whole CD is awesome; there is no point in pointing out just a few. In short this CD is AWSOME, and if your collection of pop punk only consist of bands like Blink 182, MxPx, New Found Glory, get this cd and it will change your view on pop punk forever, but don't get me wrong I still love bands like Blink and MxPx, it's just I found something that seems more real, and more punk than pop. This CD alone got me into bands like Mr. T. Experience, and The Queers. So all I have left to say is this cd kicks ...! It's worth selling your soul for; ok maybe it's not THAT good, but pretty close.

I dont care if everyone else tells you that screeching weasel's best album is boogada or anthem or any of the others- my brain hurts is definatly the best stuff screeching weasel has ever made. you will find that every song on the cd is capable of getting stuck in your head- if u like this cd check out mtx, squirtgun, teen idols, and vindictives

Love this CD. More for a solo experience, not really a 'crowd pleaser' as I don't think it appeals to everyone. Got hooked over a weekend of traveling & the first 3 times on repeat were iffy, but after 6 + times I was hooked. Always blast this album several times when I am putzing or cleaning the house. The best part of the album to me is track # 11- Don't turnout the lights... when they sing.. "say you care, say you care..." - - I'll put the album on repeat several times just to hear that part!

I recently bought My Brain Hurts on vinyl. This is Screeching Weasel at their best. From start to finish the entire album is great pop punk with catchy lyrics and melodies. If you don't have this album than buy it right away. My top 5 songs on the album are Guest List, Veronica Hates Me, The Science of Myth, What We Hate, and Don't turn out the lights. This is in my opinion the best Screeching Weasel line-up as well. You have nothing to lose with this one. Also the shipping is fast.
