Everything Falls Apart, In a Free Land, and Metal Circus are just fucking great rock records. Zen Arcade is uneven but ok. The other albums each have a handful of excellent, roughed-up pop tunes but they start getting a little formulaic. Except for Warehouse, which is mostly nonsense.

These men somehow overcame the odds.
