Fugazi are a band from Washington D.C that plays a melodic form of post hardcore and this is a review of their 1990 album "Repeater" which was released by Dischord Records.
The album starts out with some semi soft distorted sounds before all of the other musical instruments start to kick in as well as adding in a more heavy and melodic sound along with vocals and then the music takes on a more noisy yet melodic post punk rock sound.
As the album progresses the music starts alternating between clean and heavy parts as well as bringing in guitar leads and melodic clean singing vocals in certain sections of the recording and the music starts to mostly a slow to mid paced direction.
With this album Fugazi showed that you can still be low and melodic yet angry and heavy all at the same time and while the music was not as aggressive or fast sounding like Minor threat there was still a lot of anger and emotion being utilized on this record.
Song lyrics cover angry, emotional and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for the time it was released and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding recording from Fugazi and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Repeater" "Greed" "Shut the Door" and "Break IN". 8 out of 10.
