The circle pit is where the heart is,

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.
