~~ This album visits every corner of the punk genre. The sheer diversity of this album is immense. Where as Pink Flag was a perfect punk album, Chairs Missing is a perfect album. The guitarwork is exceptional, which can't be said for many punk album (even the classics), and the vocals are sensational, which varies from aggression fueled climaxes, and even some wonderful singing in the more ballad, pop songs. With what I consider the greatest short single of all time (only singles 2 minutes and under can qualify) "Outdoor Miner", the catchiest hook I have ever heard in "I Am the Fly", the epic sprawling masterpiece "Mercy", the darkly eeriness of "Practice Makes Perfect", the mysteriously sinister "Heartbeat" (the way it builds... just WOW) the all-out in-your-face punk of "Sand In My Joints", and the sublime sudden guitar licks of "Marooned", there's something here for everyone. And if you have an open minded approach to music, you'll like every single track here. This is not only Wire's most rewarding album, it's also them at their most technically brilliant, and shows them stretching beyond punk's limitations.
