Some good moments although...

"I began to be a huge fan of C.O.C after buying "blind" in the early nineties and thus, I was eager to get their previous releases. But while I was stunned by the overall qualities of "Eye for an eye" and "Animosity", I had mixed feelings toward "Technocracy", their last hardcore/crossover release. Although the songs are brutal ones, I think that they rarely match those of the first albums of C.O.C. Was the band lacking inspiration at that time? It maybe probable because they even made a cover (a good one however) of "Intervention" which appears to be the best part of that production... Woody Weatherman (lead guitarist) even declared that this recording was not a memorable period for the band... So, "Technocracy" may not be an absolute crap (At moments, I was able to get enjoyed listening it...) but, don't consider it as 'one of their best'."

"FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT INTO C.O.C. BEFORE THIS RELEASE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. BUT IF YOUR FROM THESE TIMES LIKE I WAS IN '87', OR ARE INTO THE LIKES OF D.R.I, HIRAX, EXCEL, VOIVOD, FINAL CONFLICT, AGNOSTIC FRONT, THIS IS FOR YOU. I ONLY WISH THAT THEY WOULD HAVE RELEASED A WHOLE ALBUM OF THIS VERSION OF C.O.C."
