Mission Of Burma - Vs. - 180 Gram

The second and final studio album, released in 1982 just months before the band broke up, at the pinnacle of their songwriting and performing skills. Unavailable on CD for three years and out of print on vinyl since the 1980s. Bonus DVD contains the entire afternoon set from the final show in Boston in 1983. Fully re-mastered from the original tapes. 32-page booklet contains ephemera, photos, and interviews. Vinyl is true all-analog, HQ-180 pressing.

"The almost-pop architecture is opposed by almost-Wagnerian sonic density, a dichotomy between blueprint and chaos - the competition indicated by the album's title" - Village Voice.
