5.0 out of 5 stars The circle pit is where the heart is, 27 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Group Sex (Audio CD)
Lets clear one thing up right away. This record is so short (weighing in at 16 minutes) that when it was released,they were afraid people would consider such a short album a rip-off. It would have been their loss. This is a classic Hardcore album. This is archetypal all killer, no filler. Although every track is a winner, the likes of 'Operation' and 'Wasted' just about shade it as prime cuts. You can detect the sounds of various punk forefathers in its midst, yet Circle Jerks retain a snotty, aggressive, frenetic, fast and furious sound that is entirely their own. This is what circle pits were made for. The So-Cal punk scene would be in a sorry state without this record.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for 80's hardcore/ punk fans., 29 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Group Sex (Audio CD)
Great album, if a little short. Some of the tracks are fast and furious and I think all of them weigh in at under 2 minutes each. For those who don't know Keith Morris formed the Circle Jerks after leaving Black Flag so for anyone into early Black Flag, Flipper, Dead Kennedys etc. this is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Circle Jerk's first and best!, 27 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Group Sex (Audio CD)
Contrary to the product description above, this is the Circle Jerk's first album - Wild in the Streets their second. I have them both on one CD - the way to go as they are both really short! I first heard this when it came out on vinyl in the US and I was blown away by the speed and precision. Lucky's drumming is right on the money. A track of note is 'Wasted', as the Black Flag have their own version of it (check out 'The First Four Years') and their was a bit of controversy back in the day as to whose song it was. If you like this then check out Wasted Youth's 'Reagan's In - Get Out of my Yard' CD and the Adolescent's eponymous album - and of course, Black Flag. Excellent stuff!
