"After monkeying around with a more contemporary sound on "This is Voice," Mike Palm and company returned to the studio and put out this EP that has a comparable sound to "Living in Darkness."
Clocking in at 15 minutes it's a shame that AO never returned to this sound in the studio with its original members."

""This is the Voice" came out two years after "When You Least Expect It...".
Living in Darkness (Posh Boy) 1981 Bitchin' Summer EP (Posh Boy) 1982 When You Least Expect It ... EP (Enigma) 1984 This Is the Voice (Enigma) 1986
"Out of Limits" is amazing. If this cd had nothing but Celine Dion with "Out of Limits" as the secret track it would still be worth owning. Even better go look for the vinyl, spin it on your Close n' Play, and make your daddy proud."
Oldie but a necessity...

"I saw Agent Orange at a skateboard competition in Florida in 1988; they did a few tunes off of this disk, but even back then the ep was hard to get a hold of. I would consider this disk a necessity for both fans of AO and of old school surf punk. Their version of Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody To Love" is amazing; the song and ep are enough to get the blood moving..."

"Don't get me wrong; I grew up on Agent Orange in SoCal, and I even had this album on vinyl "back in the day". The reason I say save your money? The sound quality is atrocious, just like the vinyl was. I don't mean "atrocious" like fuzzy gnarly distorto lo-tech punk recordings- I love those! I mean the music is so poorly engineered & mastered, so compressed, so flat & muffled, it never sounds "loud" even when it really is. You can get these same tracks on Sonic Snake Session (along with the live album & some other good stuff) and the sound quality is way better. It's not good enough to be called "remastered" but if you play the CDs side by side there's a huge difference. So, yeah, save your money to buy a better Agent Orange CD!"
