Musically, this is one of their best efforts. "Wild and Blue" is beautiful and poignant. "Secrets" and "Nocturne" are dark and enigmatic. "Lyric" is incredibly anguished. "100% Song" is irreverant and witty. Strains of country and folk are much in evidence.
This edition also contains the EP "Fun '90": although almost impossible to categorize, it somehow makes a fitting companion to Curse.
The Curse that you start thinking about things that could only upset your current 'applecart' and make you more of an outcast, than you already are :-) haha.
This record took me 5 listens to make it my Favorite Mekons Record. I must say, the Mekons have become my favorite band, through much listening and digestion.
Mekons Rock n Roll was my favorite, but with this album, every song is strong and unique and the last 3 closers, tracks 10,11,12 are the best cuts on the album, for 3 totally different reasons, in my opinion of course.
After that, tracks 13-16 are the Fun '90 Album, Mekons Dance tunes. Fun to listen to in the car, I like the closing track, #16, the best of the 4 tracks.
When I think real punk music, I think Mekons. I love Mekons!!!!!!!!!
