5.0 out of 5 stars The Seeds of Hardcore, 6 May 2007
This review is from: Bad Brains (Audio CD)
I downloaded this album from i-tunes after reading a section about Bad Brains in the Total Guitar magazine plus having also heard an instumental version of Pay to Cum on the cd. It was one of the most fastest riffs i had heard in a long time and even right now i still struggle to capture that speed.

As Matt Baumbach stated 'check out any quick, catchy groove riff and whoever's written it is basically ripping off the Bad Brains', of course some of us may find that debateable, but this album here is the template for the bands we know like Sick of it All, Suicide Machines and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Hailed as the first african american hardcore group, Bad Brains never reached tremendous heights commercially, but its legacy has stood the test of time. Singer H.R. manages to range his voice from quick rat-a-tat-tat sounds to smooth reggae tones, plus it also feels like he's going to snap at any moment. The rhythm section featuring the incomparable Dr Know is one of the tightest groups which is no mean feat for the speed they play at.

If you're interested download Pay to Cum first, possibly the most accessible song here, but for the album you'll be treated to gems such as Fearless Vampire Killers, Banned in D.C., Right Brigade as well as lovely reggae songs like Leaving Babylon and I Luv I Jah.

Its a rare find around here now, so if you can find it buy it.
