It's pretty good.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Kool Aid's 'Can't Wait' kicks several bells of shit out of the turgid Globe version.

Love both versions, but the Kool Aid version is boss.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Also superior: When the Time Comes. It's a very Strummer-esque set of lyrics. If only BAD 2 were a bit more lively with the rhythm section and guitars.

There's some very confessional lyrics from Mick on that album. You can tell he's hurting from the fall from favour he had with latter day BAD, but he's coming out fighting.

Mick's wrote a couple of clunkers in his time, but fuck, he's a pretty shit-hot lyricist.

Has anyone got this? I can't seem to find a, uh, legal copy to download.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Us Now is an absolute tune. Was there nothing stopping Mick reaching back in the fallow period round Higher Power to the gold lying at the bottom of his waste paper basket?

E=mc2 from Lollapalooza may be the best thing that BAD ever recorded.

Did you know that Dreadzone were hip with the skinny, drugtaking, dubstepping teens? Me neither. Good for them.
