"This was my first gig that I experienced when I was 13yrs. old back in 1985. These guys to this day are still one of the best performances I have experienced. They definitely fill any atmosphere with a high energy that get way down deep into the soul. And you can't get enough of Casey's magnetic out of this world personality and humor!!!"

"This is D.I.'s first full length album and a surf punk classic that ranks up there with Agent Oranges 'Living In Darkness' and the Posh Boy compilation Beach Blvd. There are some great songs on here like "O.C. Life","Eringzo","Falling Out" and one of best punk songs ever "Hang Ten In East Berlin". Bands like Pennywise and Das Klown owe alot of their sound to D.I..

"It's hard to decide which DI album is the best, their debut Team Goon or this, their second album. This one is longer, and it contains their three best songs ever, OC Life, Falling Out, and Hang Ten In East Berlin, so I guess this one gets my vote. Rikk Agnew's guitar playing shines on this album more than any other, it makes you want to go surfing every time you hear it. The fact that some of the songs on this album came from Rikk's solo LP probably helped this matter. The cd also contains a live performance with an awesome version of the Adolescents' Kids of the Black Hole. If you're only going to own one DI album, make sure it's this one, the energy on this album is incredible."
