Reviews:

I know this ain't saying much but this is the best damn compilation Mystic's ever cranked out. The key here is diversity. Fine examples of thrash, metal, post-punk are presented in a coherent manner. Not a bad buy. Faves for me: Scarecrows, Doggy Style, and Mind Over Four (with a cool Stooges-meet-Butthole Surfers tune).
-Brady Rifkin (from Ink Disease #10, Winter 1985)

They snuck this stuff out from behind the Orange Curtain, the stronghold of ultra-fanatical right-wingers here in the US. And yes, even in this suburban hell, an underground exists (and an extensive one at that). The likes of D.I., DOGGY STYLE, JUST BECAUSE, EXOBIOTA, CONVICTED, BLIND HATRED, LOVE CANAL, and tons more (only notable exclusion is UNIFORM CHOICE) turn in one song each in many varied punk styles. Good comp with high sound quality.
