Hoax: S/T 12"
After a slew of well-regarded EPs, here's the debut LP from Hoax. Given the meticulous presentation of their singles, it's unsurprising that the band have taken the utmost care with every aspect of this record. It's an LP in every sense of the word... fully-realized, subtly expanding their sound while giving you everything you want from a Hoax record. The recording is also probably the band's most powerful. Throw in some amazingly complex packaging, including numerous full-sized poster inserts by some of the best and most famous artists in punk, and you have a serious contender for LP of the year. If you have any interest in Hoax at all, then I highly suggest picking up this LP.
