The tenth album from Nomeansno was, and still is, a groundbreaking exploration of social and political lyrical statements and post-punk musical workouts. Back in the day, confused people liked to call this “jazz-punk” or “jazzcore” because it involved more than three chords and shock! horror! time changes! and OMG! slow parts!
“Scientific proof that NoMeansNo has indeed transformed from a tight, aggressive, smart, political punk band into a dull, meandering punk version of Rush.” - A.V. Club review
“Nomeansno finally has some decent production that puts all their instruments in the right place without sacrificing their power. The first four tracks charge out of the gate with the steam of a locomotive…” - Satan Stole My Teddybear review
“The proclamation “I’m an Asshole” and the graphic-as-true-crime violently extortionate title track lend credence to theory that Nomeansno is out to offend this time.” - Allmusic review
“Dance of the Headless Bourgeoisie is for the most part an unquestionable jazzcore masterpiece: inaccessible, uncompromising and very draining, but also incredibly tight, smart, funny, intense and repeatedly mind-blowing.” - Guy Peters Record Reviews Site review
“Well you know what they say. The world wasn’t built in a day.” - Nomeansno
