1001 7" Records You Must Own No.3 Cave In - Anchor / Minus World
A lot was made of Cave In taking a more commercial direction, but what everyone seems to forget is that they were already headed this way with the amazing Jupiter album before they signed to a major. Regardless this is their first single on a major and in my opinion it's a a future classic, not recognized nearly enough for it's huge melodies and pummeling guitar. Now as usual that's just not enough to make it on this list, luckily they backed this up with the (could'vebeenasingleitself) Minus World (or Harmless Armless) depending on which copy of this record you have, the RCA one came out first so it's Minus World to me, it comes off like an unreleased Nirvana song and they never did crap rarities. Such an under-appreciated band and album, shame!
