(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you've ever had an interest in hardcore, find this one. It's worth your time and money. Yet more proof heavy music doesn't need to be stupid, these guys show musical and lyrical eloquence. Oh, and very heavy. I've been on board since the 7" came out way back when. You folks who don't own a turntable shouldn't get too excited, but I own a third LP (12" 45rpm, more accurately. they all are...) titled "The Plot Sickens: Enslavement Redefined". I honestly don't know if that one came out on CD (I've bought all their stuff on vinyl along the way), but if you see it, get it. My vinyl is a black gatefold sleeve with the artwork printed in orange. For no reason I can explain, that is my favourite HHIG release, but they're all consistent in their quality. I do agree, it's odd finding this on amazon, but hey: I think it's about time. Finally a corporate acknowledgement of the existence of the underground music scene, other than to ban it and treat it like a threat. Hey, for those into any form of underground music, myself also including hip hop and black metal in my collection, try typing in names of bands/artists you dig. You may be surprised at what is on here, like DropDead (even though I'll still take my hardcore on vinyl, at least there's some access to it now for those who don't have cool record stores near them.)."
