"This album comes out of the blocks at full speed and doesn't slow down... a manic ride indeed!In their second LP outing, the boys from Bl'ast take their sound to a new level of intensity. The heavy Black Flag influence is still there, overlaid with a healthy dose of metal riffage. The band wears its influences on its sleeve, but take the sudden tempo shifts, twisted guitar lines and gut wrenching vocals in a direction all their own.If you like your hardcore HARD, and appreciate a band that's tight as can be, you'll dig this. Recommended for fans of the Cro-Mags, early Black Flag, etc. Not for the faint of heart."

"This was awful. The California hardcore scene was musical disharmony early on, and this album epitomizes it. I couldn't finish listening to it. Power of Expression by this band was okay, but man this CD was awful."
