This is a really good album to get if you're new to the DKs. It's extremely diverse, ranging from long, slowed-down punk opuses ("Moon Over Marin", "I am the owl") to extreme hardcore 1-minute-or-less songs ("Religious Vomit", "Moral Majority"). As always, Jello's lyrics are absolutely divine, targeting everything from organized religion ("Moral Majority") to fear of self-expression ("Halloween"). If you're into punk/hardcore and you don't own any DK albums, you don't know what you're missing. Or, if you're into the DKs and you don't own this, you should definitely pick it up. The only DK record that tops this is Fresh Fruit.
The DKs are my favorite punk band of all time and I highly recommend this album.
Does it sound different? Yes, noise is removed, and it does give it a different sound. Does it sound worse? Subjective, I personally have my pros and cons, but it doesn't sound bad. For those who feel the audio has been clipped, I have run several tracks through Audacity and to my surprise THERE IS NO CLIPPING. It may appear that way because they really amplified it, but no clipping (at least judging purely from the analysis of the audio present). I ran it through a sampling test to find the clipped tracks with other artists such as modern music like Neon Trees's "Animal" and Rev Theory's "Hell Yeah," only to find many parts clipped. So please, we may all be upset about Jello and the Dead Kennedys, but don't turn away you young listeners or others who are new just because of a grudge about something that will most likely remain unchanged... sadly.

Wtf isn't there to like about this? Music created on the tail end of when music stood for things, other than marketing. The best part of this release is it is a twofer. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Jon B.
I would have given it 5 but I'm just disappointed the guys had a falling out and Jello has been exiled from the band. You guys should kiss and make up. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Ariel

I owned copies of "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death" on cassette (AT) and CD (Manifesto). The Manifesto re-releases sound awful -- tinny and clippy and bright. Read morePublished on January 9, 2014 by Greg S.
