Wow ! What an adrenalin rush this album gave me.Killer hardcore-speedcorecrossover,the album is a 35 min.trip into hell and back !The remasteringhas boosted the lower bass but has done little for the uppertreble,anyway,it turns inaudible into fair,which is more than you can askfrom a 23 year old very low budget recording.In any case the sounddeficiencies give the production that unique raw sound everybody lovesabout this album.Guitar solos are lightning speed (who said they could'ntplay?! )and excrutiating,god how much I love this milestone in punkrock !!!! To top it all the 6 bonus tracks (taken from earlier singles,are superb,and much morethan icing on the cake
Why this band are never given the same respect & coverage as the Pistols is beyond me - This CD is a genre classic - Many 82 bands cite poor production in letting the songs down....Not here - Absolutely spot on - Like a battering ram - Because of this band i left the USA to live in England!
The bands mentioned above were the Best hardcore bands. The Germs created hardcore and their album is a masterpiece. All these bands are much better than GBH. Even the bands that made their debuts in 1983 were more talented: Suicidal Tendencies, AGRESSION, The Faction, Negative Approach, The Freeze. All american bands.
