WHO: New Bomb Turks

WHAT: Nightmare Scenario (Diamond Edition)

WHY: I know that the New Bomb Turks album everyone drools over is Destroy! Oh Boy!, and sure, that’s a great one, but people seem to forget the magic in Nightmare Scenario. It’s catchier, better crafted, and easier to handle. Oh, it’s also a way better album. The NBT have now rereleased it as a Diamond Edition for its 20th anniversary. If you loved the rawness of the original Nightmare Scenario, then guess what, these mixes are even rawer and almost indistinguishable from the original record, which is a great thing. But really, this is just an excuse to revisit the best album by one of the greatest bands of all time. And what could be next for the Turks? I don’t know, but I sure can hope.

Do yourself a favor and give it a listen right here.
