What's that old saying about polishing a turd? Lust Control's second studio album is a lot more polished in the production area than Fun, Fun Feeling but the amateur musicianship remains. As I said with the last one, you either love them or you don't. "The Big 'M'" is a song about masturbation and is hilarious. They're probably the only band in Christian music that made a song about that topic! I remember when I first got this I was at Kingdom Bound and played this disc for my pastor. He was a pretty cool guy, but I think he was still put off a little. Who wouldn't be? Lust Control said whatever the felt they had to. I always respected them for that. Anyway, Lust Control is Lust Control... you just have to take them or leave them.

Useless Fact: I'm pretty sure this album was reissued by Retroactive (the best record company ever!) with some other demo stuff. They also made a small EP after this one called Feminazi which I've only recently heard about. The rumor mill says was a lot heavier stuff.

  1. I had ordered this from my Christian bookstore back when it came out. When I went to pick it up and asked for Lust Control, the three people at the counter gave me these wide-eyed looks! "It's a band!" I said quickly, and they all looked very relieved. Cracks me up just writing about it.
