How many albums have Fugazi recorded at Inner Ear with Don Zientara? Don't they ever get tired of each other? How come the records always sound so good? How come they always make an album that's a little different than the last? When did Chad Clark start doing CD mastering? I'm mostly amazed that a band and engineer/co-producer can make so many records together. I guess I'm used to that scenario where artists are always looking for that "hip new producer/studio/etc". It's nice to see someone stick to what works. And it works well. Also available is a 3-song CD (dis129) with more tracks from these sessions. Still one of my favorite US bands...
