I was given this promo in ’98 then went to lunch w/ a couple of Epitaph employees/colleagues at the time. After I told them which promo’s I just picked up one of them said, “that is the best album we (Epitaph) have ever released.” He was referencing what would be Refused’s final full length album. Keep in mind Epitaph has released every Bad Religion album, Rancid, NOFX, Joe Strummer (Anti-)etc, and you know what, he still might be right…this one’s for the few kiddies out there that still don’t know about this band…UPDATE: The album is being reissued by Epitaph, so pick up the vinyl version if you can(see video below)!
