Anniversary album: WALK AMONG US – debut LP

Pitchfork: “They were outliers when they started, but by the time their classic debut arrived
in 1982, Misfits’ gleeful, ghoulish punk rock was exactly in tune with the national mood… Walk Among Us was a triumph for the band, solidifying their following and codifying their ominous image. But it marked an ending, not a beginning. Their next album, 1983’s Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood, was a huge shift away from their catchy, melodic, Ramones-influenced howl-alongs
and toward the more scathing blitzkrieg of hardcore.”
Score: 9.5/10.

TUTV: The American psychos still walk among us.

Single: Night Of The Living Dead
