A review of 5 years in the street for
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This CD originally attracted me with some very well known names, but as I popped it in I found that the truth was the opposite of what I thought it would be. The Face to Face tunes were as always great! It's always good to here the god fathers of punk on a good comp. However most of the bigger names on the comp fell way short of the standards I usually regard them at. The Blink-182 songs were a joke... If I wanted to hear noise I would listen to Guttermouth. I was also dissapointed with the MxPx cover of blue moon. Unwritten law had a good song, with a very melodic progression, but it wasn't amazing like I would have expected. The hippos had a great live song on the comp, unfortunatley I lost my love for ska when the Bosstones decided to be an MTV band. I found that Automatic 7, and No Motiv had some exceptional songs, that really rocked!!! With blazing guitars and pounding drums, that came together to produce ear catching melodies. Some great smaller bands on Vagrant that you need to check out! The band I was truly amazed with was Nuclear Saturday. I found that the opening riff to their song "Better days" stuck in my head for weeks! Reminescent of the Descendants, Face to Face, and New Found Glory, with more technicality than a mozart symphony... they managed to make it sound smoother than a baby's butt, and more melodic than Buddy Holly. I can't say enough about this band... they are the shape of punk to come."
Not that good.

"this really isn't that good of a CD. The good songs are by no motiv,far,gotohells,nuclear saturday,and down by law. Everything else is garbage. The only other good song is by face to face('resignation'). The blink-182 songs are so bad,it's funny. Their cover of Billy idol's "dancing with myself" is so incredibly bad,it's actually blasphemous!"
