5.0 out of 5 stars Punks not dead, it's alive and kicking with size 10 DM's
The Exploited are one of the best 80's hardcore punk bands (along with GBH and Discharge), and this is their first album. Each song is loud and sung and played with such venom, anger and passion that it makes you want to leap about and smash stuff. If you're new to this it's not a bad place to start (or try the two disc compilation further down the list), I've also got...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to knock it
I have to confess this is my first ever listen to an Exploited album and I am quietly impressed. In the day you would not have caught me within a mile of the Exploited, I was back then a rock fan rather than a punk fan. However, I have tired of rock for a while and so have turned to punk and so far so good. This album is not the best thing since sliced bread because it...

Each song is loud and sung and played with such venom, anger and passion that it makes you want to leap about and smash stuff. If you're new to this it's not a bad place to start (or try the two disc compilation further down the list), I've also got "Troops of Tomorrow" and "Lets start a war" and you won't be let down by any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars MIND BLOWER TIME TUNNEL!!!!!!, 1 Jan 2004
By 
JUAN MARTIN GABASTOU (Weston Hills, FL United States) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Punk's Not Dead (Audio CD)
20years ago,I use to have this album on vinyl and absolutely
loved it,till it got worn out.I always thought the terrible sound quality was what it prevented it from being one of the most powerful and energetic punk rock albums of all times.Now I
got the remastered cd . It sounds so incredibly well it will splatter your brains against the wall opposite to your speakers !!!! I want you to become aware that this is an all time classic every 2nd waver punk rocker should have as his reference record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punks not dead i know!, 3 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Punk's Not Dead (Audio CD)
"PUNK'S NOT DEAD ?" the cynic howled with laughter, but they soon choked on their hysterical false laughter as the new wave of Real Punk smashed into their faces
Punks Not Dead... the album every Punk should own.
This album contains some of the greatest punk songs ever written!
The album has been completley remastered including the original 15 songs, an extra 12 songs that were not on the original LP and a pull out poster of the front cover... this cds worth every penny!
1. Punks Not dead - 8/10 a bit repetetive but a good track still
2. Mucky Pup - 9/10 Wicked lyrics amazing solo.
3. Cop Cars - 10/10 One of my favourite Punk songs ever!
4. Free Flight - What were you thinking lads? Boring. 5/10
5.Army Life Part 2 - better than army life 1 cool add in of machine guns and jet sounds during solo. Classic! 10/10
6. Blown to Bits - Classic Exploited track! 9/10
7. Sex and Violence - Good song but a bit repetetive guitar and lyrics wise. 7/10
8. SPG - Another Classic Exploited song! 9/10
9. Royalty - Underated track Ha ha ha ha! 9/10
10. Dole Q - Nice bass part and bouncy rythym. 8/10
11. Exploited Barmy Army - Exploited Barmy Army dont ye try n' mess! 10/10
12. Ripper - Slow but good. 7/10
13. Out Of Control - bass blows you back! one of the best intros to a track I have ever heard! 10/10
14. Son of a Copper - intelligent lyrics and nice guitar riffs! 9/10
15. I Believe in Anarchy - This is how to do it Crass! Genius. Punk at its very best! 10/10
This is the second best selling punk album of all time, just behind the Sex Pistols' classic " Never Mind The Bollocks" album and that would definitley be hard to beat as this album sold over 150000 copies!
Punks Not Dead, only time will tell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to knock it, 26 Oct 2011
This review is from: Punk's Not Dead (Audio CD)
I have to confess this is my first ever listen to an Exploited album and I am quietly impressed. In the day you would not have caught me within a mile of the Exploited, I was back then a rock fan rather than a punk fan. However, I have tired of rock for a while and so have turned to punk and so far so good. This album is not the best thing since sliced bread because it suffers from a monotone approach where the songs are basically all played fast, so fast that the lyrics are often lost and with them the point. However, this band sounds promising enough for me to buy another Exploited album very soon, its not all bad. Just do not expect another Sex Pistols album, the blindingly memorable choruses and mob rule lyrics are not altogether present. What this album is however is pure attitude. At 40 years old I like it but at 20 I would have loved it. Maybe I am getting old...
