This is definetely one of the best grunge compilations available,in fact it is second only to the Sub-pop 200 which is a must have. The album starts off with the Blackouts, one of the first grunge bands, later went on to form Ministry.All of the bands on this compilation were part of the first wave of grunge. Some of the tracks are from the Deep Six compilation which is very difficult to find. The stand out tracks in my opinion are; Orange Airplane by the Screaming Trees because of Lanegan's cool voice, Grinding Process by the Melvins because it just rocks,Solid Action by the U-men because it is hilarious, and Mohawk Man by M.r Epp because it reminds me of the Thrown-Ups. All the tracks are great but some are a bit dated like Green River and Malfunkshun but overall this is the definitive collection of the birth of grunge. You should buy it..

HASH(0x94a44174) out of 5 stars Pretty good overview 11 July 2006
By Frank Meeuwsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Eventhough not all songs are as great as some of Seattle's grunge hype brought us, this CD is sure worth a good listen. From the early recordings of Mr Eff and Malfunkshun to the more friendly grunge noise of The Gits, Supersuckers and 7 Year Bitch, you will jump up and down in your seat while listening. And yes, it is nice to find a CD without the Big Three (or Four) from Seattle

HASH(0x94aae3f0) out of 5 stars grunge memories 14 Dec. 2007
By E. M. Kyles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I moved to Washington State on 1988, and was introduced to some incredible music from the Seattle scene. I have searched for this album, and luckily found it on Amazon. It includes some unknowns like 7-year bitch, to some more known, like Soundgarden. Grunge isn't for everyone. It's a combination of rock and punk. But we owe alot to this genre, because it started the Alternative movement. I'm a dedicated fan, forever. Thanks Amazon.
HASH(0x94acf888) out of 5 stars Superb collection of early grunge 12 Mar. 2013
By Manish Soni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a fantastic collection of grunge rock, much of it jaw-droppingly good. My previous knowledge of grunge was limited to the over-exposed "Big 4" of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearljam and Alice In Chains. However, for the first 3/4 of this CD you get to hear the roots and early inspiration for these big guns, and it makes for riveting listening. Songs like Screaming Trees' "Orange Airplane", The Melvins' "Grinding Process", and Gruntruck's "Tribe" were buzzing in my head for days after I listened to them. It's like listening to the heady days of early punk again - uncompromising, personal and meaningful music made without a thought given to commercial considerations. That said, the first few songs are on the CD are a bit too undeveloped, and the last few songs from the later period of grunge do begin to show signs of over-production and bowing down to pop sensibilities. Still, for the whopping majority of this CD you get a no-holds barred listen to unfairly overlooked and under-appreciated songs that sparked a musical revolution. Pop it in, crank it up LOUD, and prepare to have your mind blown!

(And if you want to bring a smile to your lips, just imagine the reaction of someone who loads up this disc and expects the soundtrack to the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie)
