Having bought the first three Northwest Battle of the Bands CD's, I held off getting this one because some reviews suggested it was lacking, that it was 'scraping the barrel'. I occasionally DJ, playing this kind of stuff, and because the first three are so good, I relented and bought this too. Surprise surprise...it's pretty poor. The sounds on Vol. 4 are the same as the others, but somehow it seems 'decaffeinated' by comparison. There are a couple of great tracks, particularly the stomping 'I'm Going Home' by the Sonics and 'I'm Walkin' Babe' by Thee Unusuals. But as you can get these tracks elsewhere, I have to say that it just isn't worth it.
