NEW MODEL ARMY / Impurity (1990)

Violins, spoken word by Joolz, electric and acoustic guitars belted-out in a traditional folk rock style made Impurity stand out from the rest of the crap released the same year. NMA never succumbed to trends, so their output never seems overly dated, because it was never actually in style.
Much of the album is sure to make it onto a NMA Best of.. compilation, it's that good. The remaster improves the sound a lot, so seek it if you can. I find it really hard to describe their sound, so it's best to just listen to the links:
