"Not only did I once walk 4 miles to the nearest bus station in 9th grade to see these guys. I was grounded for a month (or two?) for my blatant disregard of authority.
Yes, kids, these 4 songs are worth it. And you might as well love them cause they will never do anything as great again. These are the folks (along with Inside Out, and Quicksand) that, like it or not, brought in the new hardcore sound of the 90's. Earth Crisis took from them and gave us, er, hatebreed."
One of the most definitive records of the early 90s NYHC era

"Along with Quicksand's Debut EP, this EP really defines a new era of more melodic, more sophisticated era of NYHC. As I recall, the superbowl of hardcore at the ritz with BURN, Quicksand, Black Train Jack, and Gorilla Biscuts was a indicative of a real passing of the torch in NYHC. Around that time, we went from the simple and hard edge power of bands like chain of strength to the "more sensitive" sounds of quicksand and much more layered musical capability of Gavin and the BURN bunch. If you were there with me, you wouldn't need to read this review (you'd already have this EP!). And if you weren't there, but want to learn more about early 90's NYHC. This EP is one you should own."
Good band, poor production

"Burn was a great band, but this album really suffers from bad production. The drums sound muddy, and the whole thing sounds like it is underwater. Revelation had put out quite a few good albums previous to this one, so I don't know what happened to the production... Anyways, Burn, while less known today really typified early '90s hardcore NYC sound. Moving more melodic, decent lyrics and a good stage show its a good transition from YOT/GB into bands like Quicksand, etc."
