13 Songs

Fugazi

1989

This is arguably Fugazi's best album.  It has most of their best songs, including the classic opener "Waiting Room".  This is edgy/political underground alternative rock with a punk-rock mentality.  It's Fugazi, so of course it has that raw punky sound as well.  I was late to the Fugazi party, and discovered their music after listening to practically all the worthwhile bands (and some not so worthwhile) that were no doubt heavily influenced/inspired by this album.  So while 13 Songs has my respect, and it is undeniably a good album, overall it falls short of greatness to these ears.
