Puts today's "hardcore" to shame

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a compilation of the first six EPs released by the seminal indie label Dischord (obviously). The music contained herein changed the face of punk, and set a benchmark for hardcore music that's unparalleled by many of today's metal-tinged "hardcore" bands. The production on these EPs was lousy, and the words often hard to make out. That didn't matter then, and it hardly matters now. This was about passion rather than fashion, which separated them from the Brit punks and New Wavers. Or as Nathan Strejcek so nicely put it on Dischord No. 1, "Instead of studying theory, we're gonna get up and go!" What keeps me from giving this another star is the aforementioned lousy production, which often subdues the bass in the G.I. and Youth Brigade EPs, which are pretty fierce on their own.
Any fan of old harDCore should snap this one up. This is all short, fast, and loud, the way hardcore was meant to be done."
