FILTER Grade: 87%

As soon as the first bright notes of An Object wave you over to the album’s distorted incandescence, you realize that something is going on. It’s the same realization people must’ve had when they first heard the baby piano on The Velvet Underground & Nico or the opening drum roll on Sandinista! It’s the realization that what you’re listening to is the culmination of everything rock and roll has produced up to that point and everything that is to come. Some of you won’t agree—that’s cool—but those of you who do will remember exactly where you were and how you felt when you heard No Age’s soon-to-be seminal contribution to the history of the genre.
