The best introduction to the great G.G Allin!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The first twelve cuts on this CD comprise the '93 Fastlane show from Asbury Park, NJ, and is, without a doubt, one of G.G.'s best efforts. Certainly it is his most emotional. Here, he not only thanks his band for sticking with him while he was incarcerated up in Michigan, he even tells the audience that they were "cool" for coming out to see him! That's a first and only.Obviously the Murder Junkies, G.G.'s last and best band, spent a lot of time practicing, for I've never heard them play better. This recording also contains one of G.G.'s great speeches, touching on the Lolapalooza Tour and related matters.As for the music, well, if you've never heard G.G. Allin, this is the CD to start with. Extreme versions of "Bite It You Scum" and eleven other tunes that put everybody to shame, from Metallica and those lame poser metalheads, all the way through soft rock, punk rock, folk rock, and any other kind of music you can think of.This CD proves the obvious once again: two and two is four, water is wet, and G.G. is the only true rock 'n' roller."
Gg at his best or worst which would be his best, but.....

"to me, this, along with "antisocial personality disorder-live" and "brutality and bloodshed for all", is essential gg allin...i am not a big fan of his ealier stuff..there is something missing from that. it may just be the fact that he sounds like he should be singing for bad religion on a lot of that stuff, or it may be the music itself...i don't know...but here and on the ones that i mentioned earlier, you get the animal...never before, and possibly, never again will a person be able to put all of his anger and frustration into the form of a voice...there are times when he hardly seems human(which may be because he was too trashed to remember the words and simply growls along, who knows with gg)...if you are on this page then you are either a fan or, at least, have heard the stories and legends...if you fall into the latter category, grab this album and find out what all of the fuss is about...if it is too raw for you, that is ok, it will be for most...but,on the off chance,that it strikes a chord with you....look into more of his stuff..."
Great Songs / Nearly Unbearable Quality

"Okay, this recording has some of the greatest songs GG Allin has EVER recorded. The trouble is, the music sounds like its been put through a meat grinder. No real GG Allin fan expects good sound quality ripping through the speakers along with GG's toothless growl, but its nice when you can actually HEAR the music. It's just intolerable. Or maybe I just got spoiled listening to Hated in the Nation 700 times in a row first.By the way, Hated in the Nation is probably the best GG Album you can get, next to... Drunks and Junkies, followed closely by Brutality and Bloodshed for all. Hated in the Nation, FFD and J, and B and B for all are MUST HAVE'S for ANY GG fan, or anyone who can laugh at the sick, depraved, disgusting and violent.Also recommended to parents of Goth children. At least you're kids haven't found GG yet!!!"
