Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL, JULY 1982: An anti-violence compilation from the kids at Better Youth Organization - the folks that put on shows at Godzillas. Features tracks from the L.A., Santa Barbara and San Diego bands Social Distortion, Joneses, Youth Brigade, Agression, Adolescents, Blades, Batallion of Saints and Bad Religion. Strong album, but not as thrashed-out as one might expect - tending more toward the melodic, but still hard. Great production. Pick it up.

Additional Notes

Repressed numerous times on diferent vinyl colours. Partially reissued on CD as Someone's Gonna Get Their Head To Believe In Something.
