The epic sweep of Plastic Surgery Disasters, in both sonic texture and thematic depth, sets it apart as one of punk's most highly evolved musical and artistic statements. Vocalist Jello Biafra's rage had developed into a calmer but more strident kind of anger. Fortified by a wider variety of sounds, including horns, clarinets, and East Bay Ray's rich palette of aggressive guitar textures, the album attacked the usual DK targets. America's bloated, mentally lazy consumer culture was lambasted in the thick, intimidating "Buzzbomb" and the stingingly sarcastic "Winnebago Warrior." Several of society's more insidious archetypes were taken on as well, as in the goofy "Terminal Preppie" and the adrenaline-fueled "Well Paid Scientist." Firmly in place are Biafra's virtually trademarked paranoid, anti-government diatribes; society's false sense of security is addressed in the breakneck-speed rant of "Government Flu," the far-reaching metaphor of "Trust Your Mechanic," and the angry theatrics of "I Am the Owl."
