This is O.C. not L.A.

"The Ad's were from Orange County not L.A. The two places were a totally different life experience. I went to high school with these guys and that's when they wrote these songs. The base player, Steve Soto, went to El Dorado High, the same school that Mike and James from Agent Orange went to. The music was inspired from the f@#ked up mind set of everyone in O.C. back then. AO's song, El Dorado, was a statement of frustration at the mindless people around them in their school. These were the days when jocks would beat you up for being a punk. The Ad's wrote and played with a fury that I had never seen before. Seeing them play at parties and shows was incredible madness. It was glorious. Being an adolescent myself at the time, and having the same experiences that these guys were going through made this music even more powerfull. It was a drug. It was dangerous. It was punk at it's purest, at it's best. I saw these guys play in Seattle last month and even though it's been 25 years since I first heard these songs, they still gave me goose bumps. This is punk rock. This is music. All the new punk is crap when compared to this."
Best punk album ever recorded.

"Without a doubt. A must own. This record stands out from it's peers. It was an instant classic. This album has influenced countless amounts of bands. In much the way the band X wrote songs songs about what they saw in LA, The Adolescents wrote songs about what they saw. Due to that fact, this album captures perfectly the mind set and attitude of the early punk scene. The bonus album, Rikk Agnew's All By Myself is worthy of purchace in it's own right. A vert talented man shows what he is made of by recording ALL the instruments himself. As titled. All By Himself. Classics later recorded with Rikkand Casey's band DI OC life and Falling Out are instant classics as well. Check out section 8"
A great skate punk album

"This really is a great album, but the few standout tracks don't excuse all the excrement that the Adolescents also turned out. Still, for any hardcore or punk fan, this is a must."
