So Good It Hurts is the fifth studio album by the British punk rock band The Mekons. Released in 1988, the album showcases the band’s unique blend of punk, folk, and country influences, while exploring themes of love, loss, and political commentary.

The album features a diverse range of musical styles, with the band incorporating elements of punk rock, Americana, and even a touch of pop sensibility. The Mekons’ distinct sound is characterized by a raw and energetic approach, combining raucous guitars, driving rhythms, and heartfelt vocals.

So Good It Hurts opens with the infectious track “I’m Not Here,” which sets the tone for the album with its gritty guitars and socially conscious lyrics, addressing issues of environmental exploitation and political corruption. The album continues with songs like “Ghosts Of American Astronauts” a punk-infused anthem with a catchy chorus, and “Johnny Miner,” a heartfelt ballad showcasing the band’s more introspective side.

Throughout the album, The Mekons display their skill for crafting intelligent and thought-provoking lyrics. Songs like “Road To Florida” and “Robin Hood” offer social commentary with a touch of satire, while tracks like “Fletcher Christian” and “Revenge” exhibit the band’s ability to deconstruct and reinterpret traditional musical styles.
