It's as raw as fuck, to be blunt. And makes most punk bands of the time sound tame in places. I love it.

But track down the original double vinyl, and avoid the CD like the plague. Not only are essential tracks missing from the latter, but the CD sounds tinny and tame by comparision. More than any other VdGG release, this begs for a decent remastering. But bearing in mind the indifference shown to the whole (non-Genesis related) Charisma back catalogue (whither those superb mid-period Hawkwind albums these days?) I wouldn't hold your breath.
