rudie328 I had the honor of seeing them in Pensacola, FL at the Vinyl Music Hall during the 35th anniversary of this wonderful album's release. If I HAD to pick one favorite track from this one, it would be Nausea. Favorite track: Nausea.

thombone This is a masterpiece. In this "less fun in the new world" full of tossed together sample library un-imagination, do yourselves a favor: sit down and listen to this record in its entirety. Not only is this release an iconic example of the art of the full album narrative, it also stands as a reminder that this form of art is sadly fading. "Los Angeles" feels like a vacation from much of the insincere garbage being released today. Except ALPHABETLAND of course! -Thom Flipside Favorite track: Los Angeles.

about

Musically, Los Angeles is almost infallible. “Your Phone’s Off the Hook, But You‘re Not” kicks off with relentless immediacy as if you’ve jumped into a speeding car on a midnight tour. Doe and Cervenka trade lead vocals and occasionally Cervenka veers stunningly off course in vivid and blistering wails, a Siouxsie Sioux in Southern California. On top of Bonebrake’s motoring drums, the songs are dark and doom-laden, fiery and mordant. X sings about drugs and violence and cruising and ennui, conjuring a mood that prefigures Hüsker Dü’s “Diane” and Sonic Youth’s Bad Moon Rising. They stick it to the upper class with “Sex and Dying in High Society” and they finish with one of the best punk love songs of all time, “The World’s a Mess, It’s in My Kiss.” “Go to hell, see if you like it/Then come home with me”—the musical equivalent of cigarette ashes and red lipstick—the end to a wild ride through Los Angeles’ underworld. - Rebecca Bengal Pitchfork.com
