V/A
Party Or Go Home: Sixty Bands CD

Some keepers, but not a particularly vital collection unless you're REALLY into classic skate-punk. Which I am not. "Brick Walls" is probably the best Big Boys song though. And the Authorities' brilliant "I Hate Cops" is worth it for the lyrics alone: "I hate cops/they're all fucking niggers/they all have mustaches/they squeak when they walk". The best is largely forgettable, but it is a great document of a certain facet of the scene.

Steven Blush -American Hardcore Book

Steven Blush
American Hardcore Book

An utterly fascinating primer on the history of hardcore from a diverse and often conflicting array of sources- showcases the turmoil of the scene, and is a valuable addition to any punk's reading list.

Boris
Pink CD

This record is such a trip- the ultimate fuzz, huge noise, ambiant sludge that puts the Melvins to shame, some ripping metal and thrash, some mind numbingly massive drone, all in a prog-ish sort of arrangement. This needs to be heard to be believed.

Infest -No Man's Slave LP

Infest
No Man's Slave LP

Before this record, I had never heard an Infest album in its entireity, and had actually heard very little of this well-known hardcore group. I was really bowled over though with the onslaught of short, brutal bursts of pounding drums, churning guitars, and vocals that I cannot describe other than as beastial grunts. More incredible than the blasts of condensed noise is the technical ability of the band- starting and stopping on a dime, including lightning fast drum, bass and guitar bits into songs that seem too short for such brilliant song writing. Songs like "Sick Machine," "True Violence," and "Cold Inside" stuck in my head as particularly good examples of their talents. I'm definetely going to get more of their stuff.

Cold Sweat
Blinded CD

They bill this as the second coming of Born Against style hardcore, and that's mostly accurate. It's really heavy, fast, and brutally angry hardcore, though the metal overtones are far more obvious than with Born Against (see the breakdown during "Praying Tied Down"). The Greg Ginn guitar noodling/sound is a great addition to that sound. The lyrics are almost ridiculously hateful- "I can't wait until everything's burning, keep the bodies churning..." (Burn Everything), "I'm so fucking sick gun in my head no there's gotta be a better way out no more of this hell this life" (Gun In My Head). There are some stellar drumming moments- "Slip Away" has a long extended drumming bit that owns. The vocals are hard to describe- it's mostly shouting-on-the-verge-of-screaming, and it's demonic, possessed. If you like later Black Flag, Born Against, 9 Shocks Terror- most really intense hardcore stuff - this is for you

Oath/Total Fury -Split (Limited Edition) 7

Oath/Total Fury
Split (Limited Edition) 7"

This is a really great, tearin' 80's-style release from two really great bands- Total Fury does some DC style shit, Minor Threat's style with some VOID guitar tooling, fast, shouted teenage anger. Das Oath does some Poison Idea worship, pounding drums and grinding guitars. The description of this as the best split since Faith and Void isn't entirely true, this stuff is retreaded and not as unique as Void, but it sure ain't half bad- infact, if you're interested in hearing one of the best modern splits ever, get this shit.

Briefs
Steal Yer Heart CD

A solid record, but more forgetable than 'Sex Objects,' their true masterpiece of '77-styled snot punk. The highlights of 'Steal Yer Heart' are "Criminal Youth," "I Can't Work," "Razorblade Heart," and "Normal Jerks."

Descendents -Milo Goes To College CD

Descendents
Milo Goes To College CD

Calling a record 'pop-punk' now-a-days invokes thoughts of pop bands playing under the facade of punk, such as Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, and other bands along those lines. This record is a reminder of a time when pop-punk was a genre of melodic hardcore, catchy hooks, and angsty lyrics. The Descendents' Milo Goes To College embodies everything that I've ever liked about classic pop-punk, and pushes the envelope of expectations by also making it VERY smart and VERY funny. Go buy it, sheep.

JDKz
Who's To Blame? CD

The Adolescents'1981 self-titled release is a classic example of how punk SHOULD be played -- intense, fast, tight, energetic, clever, and catchy. From opener ''I Hate Children'' to closer ''Creatures,'' every track on this record is a classic; choosing to highlight only one or two tracks would be misleading. This is a cornerstone of the American punk experience.

V/A
Boston A Punk And Hardcore Compilation (Double Disc) CD

There is NO reason to pass up such a cheap (though incredible) TWO-DISC compilation of some of Boston's greatest hardcore/street punk bands from Rodent Popsicle, including A Global Threat (with the excellent ''Cardinal Sin''); Out Cold (their track is the blistering ''Violent Mood Swing''); Toxic Narcotic (with the almsot RIDICULOUSLY brutal -- and this comes from a dedicated hardcore fan-- ''Shoot People, Not Dope''); Enemy Myself (with the slow and crushing ''We'll Waste You''); and scores of other excellent bands. A scene-defining release of epic proportions.
