Although this album contains a lot of non-essential hardcore, it does get props for so thoroughly documenting the early-'80s D.C. hardcore scene. For some of the groups Red C, Iron Cross, this compilation was the extent of their exposure. For others Minor Threat, Government Issue, Youth Brigade, this compilation was just the starting point for exposure and recognition.

While all brutally fast and confrontational, some groups are more melodic Teen Idles, Red C, and some are about as atonal as a group can sound Void. Whether the music is a light or heavy assault on the ears, this music is important. There isn't a more complete summary of early D.C....

    Short, simple, and fast seems to be the three main elements for the D.C. hardcore scene. This compilation of well known and not so well known bands has a wide range of great songs. I enjoyed this album but after awhile it gets a little repetetive. However, it is still a great CD that still keeps the heart of hardcore D.C.
