"this sf based hardcore band was already broken up by the time i was hitting my first punk shows in the bay area in 84. too bad i never saw them as this cd along with mdc's first album are the hardest, fastest punk to come out of the bay area in the first half of the eighties. unbeleivable that this came out in 1982 (by the way, slayer covers a few of these songs on their punk tribute album which isn't very good but the VA songs are!)"

"The first 12 songs on here constitute the original release. I've not heard the other songs as I have this on LP. My review is based on those 12 songs.
There are many albums that probably embody "quintessential early 80s hardcore". This is one of those. Every song on the original release is a classic. A couple of these are Sick Pleasure songs and it's funny...when Nicki went on to play with Afterbirth, I saw some of these songs live with them. Raw frickin' energy and power here, folks. Step right up!"
