Tortoise - TNT
Bloody hell: this is actually quite hard work. TNT. I think it came out at a similar time to Veiculo; at any rate, I remember listening to them more or less interchangeably at home. At this time, me and a friend had a theory that track four ('I Set My face To The Hillside') was always the best track on the album, a hypothesis largely based on TNT and my next choice.
