Punk-O-Rama 9

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
The ninth volume of this longstanding compilation series is a comprehensive cross-section of the artists on Epitaph and its associated labels Hellcat and Rhymesayers. Kicking off with Bad Religion's fold-returning "Social Suicide," the set breaks up the emocore chokehold of nameplates like From First to Last, Matchbook Romance, and Scatter the Ashes with hip-hop from Atmosphere "The Keys to Life vs. 15 Minutes of Fame" and the rousing punk revivalism of Rancid and Dropkick Murphys. The latter's fun, bawdy duet "The Dirty Glass" is a collection highlight. Scatter the Ashes and Refused offer technical, visceral takes on the post-hardcore aesthetic, while solid contributions...

Kicking off with Bad Religion's fold-returning "Social Suicide," the set breaks up the emocore chokehold of nameplates like From First to Last, Matchbook Romance, and Scatter the Ashes with hip-hop from Atmosphere "The Keys to Life vs. 15 Minutes of Fame" and the rousing punk revivalism of Rancid and Dropkick Murphys. The latter's fun, bawdy duet "The Dirty Glass" is a collection highlight. Scatter the Ashes and Refused offer technical, visceral takes on the post-hardcore aesthetic, while solid contributions from Nekromantix, Tiger Army, and HorrorPops point uninitiated cherries toward the psychobilly funhouse. The majority of Punk-O-Rama, Vol. 9 is culled from current releases; however, there is an unreleased live track from Death By Stereo, as well as Hot Water Music's "Seein' Diamonds," a melodic Jawbreaker-type number seeing its first domestic issue. Fans of Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato who may have missed Error, his industrial dalliance with Brett Gurewitz and assorted pals, will enjoy the wack KMFDM smack of "Burn in Hell," and Eyedea & Abilities' "Now" helps close the set with rapid raps and cut-up OutKast-ian rhythms. [Punk-O-Rama, Vol. 9 also packed a DVD with video content from many of its musical contributors, as well as acts like Randy and Converge.]

    RIP-OFF!

    What happened?! Punk-o-Ramas vol. 1-6 were all so good. I skipped vol. 7 and 8 and saw vol. 9 in the store and thought, "What the heck? I'll give this a try. The other volumes were good." Well guess what? This one STINKS! Why? Well, let me tell you: It is on Epitaph, a punk rock label; And it's called PUNK-O-RAMA, giving the consumer the idea that it is indeed a punk rock compilation. So you can imagine how disappointed I was when I got a CD with only a FEW punk songs on it while the rest of the songs consist of material from really, really, really bad, lame power-pop bands, cheesy, wanna-be goth/psychobilly bands, and rap artists...that's right, RAP! I have nothing against rap. I even like some rap. However, I DO have a problem when I'm in the mood to hear some punk and I buy what I think is a punk CD and I get rap music (and it's not even good rap music)!! Long story, short: This CD isn't even worth the 5 bucks they are selling it for. Instead, go use the money towards a Bouncing Souls or Rancid album.
