Suburbs, The, Credit in Heaven 2 CD Set

"1981's Credit in Heaven was the group's most ambitious project, a two-record set which presents the band's musical ideas and lyrical eccentricities writ large, running the gamut from the nervy wit of "Tape Your Wife to the Ceiling," the alcoholic self-deception of "Drinking With an Angel," the class-conscious paranoia of "Dish It Up," and the title cut, which not only manages to sum up New Testament vs. Old Testament approaches toward sin and forgiveness in less then four minutes, but manages to make it funny and danceable at the same time. Credit in Heaven is an under-appreciated milestone of the Midwestern new wave that awaits rediscovery." -- Mark Deming AllMusic
