5.0 out of 5 stars Duff Delivers AGAIN!?!?!, 18 April 2011
Without a doubt this is easily as good or let alone better then Loaded's excellent debut album Sick which for me personally had some of Duffs best songs in his career along side Velvet Revolver and Guns N Roses.

But We Are All We Have blows every other street or hardcore punk band out the water these guys really know what anger and aggression is no questions asked this Casualties releases is just as good maybe even better than previous albums.
