Speaking of "The Message," man, that's a great fucking song. The production is great, which doesn't seem to get remarked on much. I'm especially crazy about that great triplets hi-hat thing that comes in at the end of some measures.
The lyrics are great, too, of course--"she used to be a fag hag" and "I might hijack a plane!" Surprisingly un-cheesy, even today.
Yeah, I know, that's obvious and all, but the track's always been one of those things I knew was good and enjoyed listening to but never quite caught the full brundt of before.
