New Model Army - Vengeance (1984)

Debut LP from post-punk greats New Model Army. Vengeance sounds partially rooted in the rhythm-section-driven sounds of English peace punk, but with less over-the-top, more humanistic politics, more melody, and a generally grander, more anthemic approach. It's the first NMA record I ever heard, and it's still my favorite, but make no mistake: this band has never put out a bad record.

Track listing:
1. Christian Militia
2. Notice Me
3. Smalltown England
4. A Liberal Education
5. Vengeance
6. Sex (The Black Angel)
7. Running
8. Spirit of the Falklands

I love the world
