Crass had a political approach that made Fugazi look like liberals. With Penis Envy they delivered a record with a variety of styles (not just straight Punk Rock but experimenting with percussion and delay). The ideals of Anarchy are represented by a holy anger addressing racism,capitalism, carnivorism, sexism and so on. "What next Columbus" might be a got start to get into this record. Penis Envy is definitely their "easiest"-listening


Brilliant record. Lots of variety in musicality especially for a Punk record. But most importantly with this album is its messages and overall concept. It is probably the most creative Feminist record ever made and all the questions/issues brought up need to be evaluated a lot more in society then they were/are, both in 1980 and presently.


Great album full of the best tracks and ideas by them. I feel this one makes me feel the less uncomfortable and I guess that's good (? anyways it's a great piece eith one of the best endings, really well placed.
