Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #17, SEPTEMBER 1984: This regional compilation put out by WNUR radio's "Fast 'n' Loud" crew showcases most of the more active, hard-working Chicago-area bands, including NAKED RAYGUN, SAVAGE BELIEFS, NADSAT REBEL, OUT OF ORDER, A.O.F., R.O.T.A., BIG BLACK, and the EFFIGIES. All varieties of punk are represented, and the recording is generally powerful, making this a welcome addition to anyone's record collection. NAKED RAYGUN particularly excel, but I like almost every band here.
