"I was just reading a review at a website dedicated to HC that said about the album Kill Kill Kill: "Sadly, Jerry's Kids was eventually befallen by the dreaded 'Boston Curse' and released their own crappy heavy metal album." While it's true that a lot of the Boston HC bands from the early 80s went metal, this is really off the mark. A distinction must be made. SSD, DYS, the F.U.'s did indeed veer off of the hardcore path and into true Judas Priest-esque metal. But like Gang Green, Jerry's Kids went for more of a speed rock approach. Not speed metal, speed ROCK. Behind all of the thrash and burn are some pretty traditional blues based riffs and licks. There are a few lame duds here and there, but most of the album is damn listenable. It goes without saying that it can't stand up to the absolute classic early 80s hardcore of Is This My World, but Kill Kill Kill is worth a listen."
No, there is just ONE ALBUM on this disc!!

"The 2-on-1 format of this title has been out of print for a couple of years. These days, if you order this title from ANY seller, you will get a CD with the tracks from "Kill Kill Kill" ONLY. The two albums were re-mastered and re-issued SEPARATELY. The track list above has yet to be updated. Don't be misled! Trust me. I just completed a five-week global search for the original 2-on-1 format. It is impossibly rare, as are some other older deleted "two-fer" CD's on Taang! Records. Have fun!"
Boston HC Classic

"The second half of this CD, "Is This My World," is amazing old-school Boston hardcore (songs 14-25). It's very fast and manic, and influenced most of the early Boston hardcore scene, including contemporaries Gang Green and SSD. It's hella fast, slightly sloppy, and all over the place, in the best way that only classic hardcore is. The drumming is particularly amazing: an absolute blur. The first half, "Kill, Kill, Kill," (songs 1-13) is a later release, and sounds pretty different than "Is This My World." The first 13 songs that make up the "Kill, Kill, Kill" half of this CD definitely pale in comparison to the much more hardcore half, "Is This My World,"--but it's a small price to pay for having the "Is This My World" LP on the CD."
