NEW MODEL ARMY / No Rest for the Wicked (1985)

If you're new to New Model Army, then I'd recommend Thunder and Consolation, (1989), because the sound on their early albums may seem dated to new fans, then work your way forward through their discography. If you want to explore further, then work back. No Rest for the Wicked is their second album. It has the inimitable NMA style, and the usual lyrical themes. The biggest difference is Stuart Morrow's aggressive bass style, which gives the music a belligerent tone, something that was lessened on later works without him.
