unbroken is one of my favorite hardcore bands ever. this isn't their best shit though. their second album, life.love.regret, is classic and you need to own it. their first album, ritual, is pretty weak. they're both out of print but indecision rereleased them on one CD (with life.love.regret first, fortunately) under the name "the death of true spirit" for the price of a regular cd. you NEED to go get that. this is a comp of their 7"s and rare stuff. the stuff at the beginning of the cd is their last 2 7"s which fucking shred. absentee debate is probably the best unbroken song. then there's a pretty weak joy division cover (i love JD, but that cover doesn't cut it), then there's 3 early version of life.love.regret tunes which are pretty cool, though not as good as the album versions. then a bunch of ritual-era stuff which is pretty weak. so basically, this is worth it just for the first 4 tracks ('cause it's among their best material and destroys almost any hardcore band nowadays), but make sure you have the death of true spirit first.
if you've never heard unbroken, they were from the early-mid 90s and they were one of the first bands that played metallish hardcore, but with plenty of punk and classic hardcore influence. and their songs were full of emotion, but not in an "emo" way. their shit was just so intense and powerful. pretty much every metal-core band (shai hulud comes to mind) now wishes they were unbroken. holy crap.
