It's daunting to imagine just how far Mission of Burma could have taken its music had Roger Miller's hearing problems not caused the band to break up the following year, but regardless of lost potential, very few American bands from the 1980s released an album as ambitious or as powerful as V. and it still sounds like a classic.
Let’s just begin by saying that Vs. is a class-A album by a legendary and deservedly worshipped band, aptly named by Eric M. Van as the greatest band in the history of the world. However, though this, and all other Burma material, is stellar and spectacular and better than most anything else out there, it just misses perfection by an inch. It certainly represents an exciting and unique sound, wonderfully expressed by creative and unconventional songwriters at the height of their powers. But a certain few missteps place this album in the category of essential, not perfect.
