This is the perfect hardcore album, I have had it years and whilst I may have disowned a lot of the other punk stuff I used to listen to (simply because it is not actually that good) This album rules, with classics such as Sailin On interspersed by sweet reggae this is one of the most eclectic albums ever, from sheer bloody raw energy to a stoned dub. An aabsolute classic, and a must have for any wannabe punkers out there.

Along with Black Flag's Damaged and Husker Du's New Day Rising this has to be the must-have American 80's Hardcore album. The punk - reggae crossover has been done before and after but never with such ferocity or authenticity.

The first play will blow you away but unlike a lot of one dimensional punky noise, new facets and dimensions will open up with subsequent listening. This record is a masterpiece and really should be in the collection of anyone with a passing interest in what real from the soul hardcore was all about

probably one of my top ten albums of all time . seething with anger coupled with the mellow reggae tracks and h.r's vocals makes this stand out from other hardcore bands of their time , and seeing them live only cements their place as one of my fave bands . check this out and their second offering i against i , you won't be disappointed .

Absolute masterpiece of music HOWEVER look for the original mix released on CD on PVC in the US and Line in Germany. The original mix is far, far superior and any Iissue post 1991 sounds awful and was speeded up as part of the remix so just sounds wrong.

Excellent record full of raw energy. The essence of hard-core in Washington

Bad Brains' second album and the best they've recorded, before or since. Metal-edged hardcore meets sweet reggae, with HR's inimitable vocals. A clean production enhances Dr. Know's crushing guitar on the hardcore tracks, and the reggae excursions are sweet and uplifting. Produced by Ric Ocasek, this is seminal thrash, hardcore punk politics, and Rastafarian skanking: a truly landmark release.

what can i say about the bad brains,legendary,class act.rock for light is one of the best albums of all time.the drummer with minor threat "jeff nelson"describes them as the best hardcore punk band of all time.not bad praise from such a class act as minor threat.if you dont have this album or heard it you have not lived.
