The Politics of Time [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Dougan
Not a follow-up to Double Nickels as much as it was an interesting assortment of odds and ends recorded during the band's infancy and pre-Minutemen days when they were called the Reactionaries. Unsurprisingly, the quality of some of these recordings is less than high quality, but the energy and excitement come through. Side two is arguably the most interesting, with Martin Tamburovich on lead vocals; this is perhaps the most exhaustive collection of Reactionaries material on record. Perhaps not an essential record, but a good one nonetheless.
