"In spite of the years, this album is still a must have to me... Gorilla Biscuits was a very original band with a very short career (but so intense...). Simply said, GB was unique and sounded differently than the others... "Start Today" is a clear evidence of that. It is rough and full of energy. Having some FUN and displaying POSITIVITY all around seemed to be the main motto of these guys. So, let's start today..."
Best hardcore album of all time.....

"fo real. i am saying this now after owning this cd for 12 yrs. this is just some catchy, not your run-of-the mill (thank you walter!) hardcore. like many of its peers, it has an appeal to those individuals who find it important to stay true to yourself. the album is not "a call to arms" as one hapless person put it. they do endorse straightedge on one song, and vegetarianism on another (cats and dogs) but not in a hardline way. they are actually one of the most positive and open minded hardcore bands to emerge from that scene. (as well as youth of today and well most of them really) they want people to give each other a chance, they want people to be who they are, they want people to stop fighting, start loving. its not to far off from what many hippies in the sixties believed. (as radically different as they are) but with the gorila biscuits there is an urgency to this message. we need to start today. the hippies have great ideals, but they are too lax to make change, these kids have aggresion, they wont sit around, they'll scream it out loud in hopes that people are listening. now hopefully you'll get it and love it, like i and so many other have... the music is fast punk with great NYC hardcore breakdowns. wally is a great musician then and now (check quicksand and rival schools) and civ is just a your angry teen spouting his anger at societies collapse. biddip bo!"
One of the best

"Start Today is one of the best hardcore albums period. It had just the right amount of melody mixed with anger and positivity. Lyricly maybe not groundbreaking but they still did things a little different and a song like, Things We Say made kids think about the way they treat people. I found this album just a bit after it came out and was in high school and feeling like an outcast because I didn't think the same things as all the other kids and this was one of those albums that make you feel not so alone in the world. This album was like a breath of fresh air when it came out and for all the people that hate on it, there's a reason that this album was instrumental in introducing so many kids to hardcore. although I question some of their intentions these days i'm looking forward to seeing them on the reunion tour and finally getting the chance to pig pile and shout these songs. Highly reccomend it."
