CIV's debut album is a standard-issue set of heavy-testosterone, straight-ahead '90s punk rock -- which means it is a fusion of the '80s California punk aesthetic and heavy metal guitar crunch. Apart from the single "Wait One Minute More," which borrows its pounding tribal drums directly from Adam And The Ants' Kings of the Wild Frontier, Set Your Goals isn't particularly distinctive, but it delivers the same thrills as The Offspring and Sick Of It All, which is enough for most of the band's fans.

The best Punk rock/hardcor album to come out since Chain of Strength and Gorilla Biscuits(civ sang for them too) Set your goals is exciting and infectious. The lyrics have power and make you think, yet the music remains optimistic. I wake up to set your goals all the time, it pumps me up for the day and Soundtrack for Violence is the best pit song in history. This album has no duds and is still the best buy in hardcore.
