"This is one of the best UK oi/punk records and maybe the most underated. This album is simply brilliant. These guys knew what they were doing. Its fast, hardcore, and melodic at the same time. If you like oldschool british punk rock this album is a must have."
EXCELLENT OI !/MELODIC 80'S HC PUNK

"Of a very particular kind. This unique sounding collection features over an hour of the most original and fresh sounding 80's hardcore punk. Massive choruses in atypical non-oi, no-singalong fashion, a lead singer with a gravelly voice, powerful,highly skilled two-guitar arrangements with plenty of metally/rock'n roll solos and machine gun drumming, this collection of the self titled lp + a lot of 7 ''and demos covering the 82 - 98 ! period starts out in what reminds a little of Bad Religion but rapidly develops into a speedy melodic mayhem of unrelentless heaviness. The sound leaves a lot to be wished in the upper treble department but the music more than makes up for it. A CRIMINALLY underrated brit-punk band hailing from the early 80's."
