Bring the Hammer Down, Mr. Fitz!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"No anthology of great punk bands is complete without the ones who bring the hammer down the hardest- the Business. Hailing from the badlands of South East London (SE 12), the kings of English Oi return once again with "The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth", the biggest, baddest and fattest new oi release out there. Once you see this band live, the experience shall never to be forgotten... Mr. Fitz, real-life entertainer extraordinaire, saunters about the stage like a panther in a cage. And when it comes time for him to sing, he brings the hammer down with the force of Zeus, shattering the air with thundering manifestos. Backed by the heavy-handed Bones (from Discharge and Broken Bones)on the guitar, punk is given back to the hands of its first and rightful Captains, the OG power players from SE London. Accept nothing less! Accept no substitutes! I RatMouse am here to tell you that the Business don't mince meat with punk rock. When I want to put holes in my cheese, I just hold the block of it up to the speaker and let these songs eat away at it! I sit below in the sewers and listen when they play in Birmingham (where I live- I used to live in the sewers of Paris, but got kicked out by Victor Hugo's cronies). Bring down the hammer Mr. Fitz, for as you do so, you are builing the edifice of Oi!"
Not a '5'star

"if all these songs were live this would be a '5'star release. the truth is that the intensity isn't here."
If you don't like this cd, you're an idiot!!!

"First of all, this cd was released in 1997. Therefore, don't be looking for the days of "Suburban Rebels" or the newer "No Mercy" stuff...This album was produced by Lars Frederiksen and Lars definitely put his stamp on it...Imagine lyrics from the "Surburan Rebels" era, with the sound of "Keep the Faith" and throw in some heavy power chords and double-stops you'd find on a Rancid album. Other than that, buy it. Its fun to listen to and every Oi fan should have it."
