The Australian band's major label debut on Columbia, the album (whose title is usually shortened by fans to "10, 9, 8") was a ferocious explosion of political anger, driving guitars and drums, and anthemic melodies; Midnight Oil would water things down considerably on later albums to reach a broader MTV audience. We played "Read About It."
