Track down the liner notes

dj5am

One of the most entertaining things about this album is the liner notes - how to erase finger prints and everything subversive. P-power all the way!

Amazing...

Gonsiska

One of the best Dischord / punk recordings of the 1990's (outside Fugazi, of course). Highly recommended.

Yes

Simply one of the best records of the 90s, and a perfect example of the expression "more than the sum of its parts". Even songs that SHOULD be weaker manage to be exhilirating. The obvious choice hear for best song is "The Kid Who Tells On Another Kid Is A Dead Kid", which is a refrence to a classic early Matt Dillon vehicle, but that movie is also sort of a cinematic expression of the spirit that NOU embodies with its noisy, often dissonant, Chuck Berry chuggin' Benzadrine and probably some Camus rock n'roll/punk rock/whatever. What I mean to say is that this is one of my favorite albums and that you should download the whole thing.

Nevermind "Nevermind"

MatthiasSchulz

Arguably one of the most important punk records ever. In 1991 the world was talking about "punk" breaking into the mainstream, but beneath the surface was NOU; heralding a new underground and delivering a final, holy blow to manufactured angst and posturing MTV wannabe's.

Six Degrees of Refused’s The Shape Of Punk To Come

By Jonah Bayer, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

A raging collection of songs preaching an ideology of insomnia, teenage rebellion, and sharp dressing, the Nation of Ulysses’ 13-Point Program to Destroy America comes across as a blueprint for the complete overthrow of adult society in favor of one ruled entirely by the cool kids. Nearly every track on the album is played at breakneck speed, and the overall message is one of uprising. “A Kid Who Tells on Another Kid Is a Dead Kid” and “Cool Senior High School (Fight Song)” extol the virtues of kids sticking together to exclude those not fit for the glorious new society, namely grown-ups and squares. All the songs are punk gems, and after a couple of listens the revolutionary rhetoric starts to sounds pretty damn exciting, maybe because it’s not entirely clear whether or not the Nation of Ulysses is serious or just playing a joke on all the indie rock hipsters. Either way, it’s hard for anyone to not enjoy songs like “Look Out! Soul Is Back” and “Today I Met the Girl I’m Going to Marry.” The revolution might not be here quite yet, but when it comes, be sure to have this album as proof to your worthiness. – Brandon Gentry
