All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Some think that hardcore punk has been vitiated by the many artists who have appropriated some of its stylistic trappings and draped them over other, less intense rock subgenres.

Some think that hardcore punk has been vitiated by the many artists who have appropriated some of its stylistic trappings and draped them over other, less intense rock subgenres. Others see such cross-pollination as proof of hardcore's enduring vitality and continued relevance; two decades after critics first pronounced punk dead.

It's exhausting but fun, and a mighty impressive first effort.

    Whoa

    I'd never really heard too much music like this until I listened to this CD, and now I'm hooked. I love it. This has got to be the greatest thing in the world, except my Lord and Savior--JESUS CHRIST, for Whom I live and die. All for Jesus.
