"fans of the business will enjoy this album. the songs have a harder edge than "welcome to the real world" and is pretty close to the sound of "we want the truth...". lyrics are of the standard street-punk/poliical stuff. the album holds classics like harry may, suburban rebels, blind justice, and drinking and driving. if you like to drink, sing along or are just a plain hooligan then get this album."
Drinking and Driving is fun indeed!

"The Business is the first Oi band that I have ever listened to. They are pretty good and I think that the singer has a heavy british accent when he sings. It's kind of hard to find that in any other band (the Subhumans was the only one I knew of that had this). Drinking and Driving is simply genius. I'm sure that nobody has thought about that back in those days. get this first. I like them because they are British Punk, I kind of ignore that whole skinhead thing."
The Greatest Oi! Album Ever

"The greatest oi! album ever, showing the working class and rock n roll roots that made the genre so appealing to punks and skins. Just when Sham 69 started to play lame pop songs, The Business came along and saved oi! with this album, as the genre is still living today. Songs like "Suburban Rebels" and "Guttersnipe" are some of the best oi! songs ever recorded. The bonus tracks are great as well. If you consider yourself a fan of punk or oi!, PICK THIS UP. You will not regret it."
