Brilliant Punk Compilation!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a well made compilation. Some of the highlights are Nofx-We threw gasoline on the fire and now we have stumps for arms and no eyebrows" and Bad Religon-You. This is a crowning jewel for the ever-growing punk o rama series. It adds a dash of ska with Voodoo Glow Skulls and 1 against 1. With such classic punk bands as Nofx, Pennywise, Ten Foot Pole and Rancid you cannot Fail in buying this CD! A must have for all punk rockers."
Not the best Punk-O-Rama!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"It has its high points, but some real stinkers contaminate it.
1. We Threw Gasoline... (A-) Not too appealing at first, but the chorus is incredible and irresistable
2. Everybodies Girl (A++) Pure bliss from start to finish! Unbelievable.
3. Worlds On Heroin (A-) A lazy opening riff? Nah, it picks itself up quickly, impressivley.
4. Say Anything (A+) It only gets one plus because it's too short!
5. Delinquent Song (A-) Some ska is here. Slower than its predecessors, but it's excellent with the right mindset.
6. Everready (A-) Good.
7. Greed Motivates (A) Grabs you and goes really fast!
8. Telepath Boy (A-) Fun for all 50 seconds it lasts.
9. Never Connected (A-) Nice.
10. Gotta Go (Grade not available) I always skip this, so I wouldn't know.
11. Defiled (A-) Rockin'!
12. Haula$$ Hyena (B+) Kinda annoying and familiar.
13. Rats In The Hallway (A-) There were better songs on Rancid's debut (Hyena, Detroit, Rejected.)
14. Steel-Toed Sneakers (A) Great!
15. Bad Seed (D+) They sure got the "bad" part right.
16. Rotten Egg (A) Annoying to some, but I love it.
17. Poison Steak (A) Annoying to some, but I love it.
18. No Equalizer (Grade not available) Once again, I always skip it.
19. Alright (A-) Since this is a demo song, it's kinda trite and sterile, but OK.
20. A.D.D. (B-) Why do I have to force myself to listen to it if I'm not too crazy about it?
21. Lozin' Must (F) Millencolin, Millencolin, Millencolin, you're capable of much more than this puke.
22. You (A++) Quite a contrast from Lozin' Must, indeed.
23. Ordinary Fight (A+) Would've been an excellent ending song, but no...
24. If (C) ...this mediocrity had to be dropped.
25. Wake Up (C-) An unreleased Pennywise song. Unfortunately, listening to it makes it clear why it was left off the superior Full Circle.
I personally think Punk-O-Rama 5 is the CD to get first. On Punk-O-Rama 3, few of the tracks hit that "Aw yeah, this is amazing" vibe or are very memorable. On Punk-O-Rama 5, the tracks by Zeke, Millencolin, All, Bouncing Souls, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Union 13, Osker and Pennywise all surpass those on Punk-O-Rama 3."
