Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #3, NOVEMBER 1982: Like the LAST RESORT album, this compilation suffers from weak production and generally Lacklustre performances. Only T-D-A generate real firepower with their speedy instrumental attack. The ACCUSED and the SEDATED also have their moments, but almost all the other groups have trouble writing a memorable tune. The biggest surprise here is that the newly-reformed SKREWDRIVER--a seminal ' 77 proto-Oi band--display little of the obnoxious punch that made older songs like "You're So Dumb" so classic. On the whole, disappointing.

Additional Notes

On the CD, the Skrewdriver songs are credited to "Freedom Of Speech?" On the original LP, Accused are listed as Accussed on the labels (But Accused on the sleeve), while B6 is listed as 'Johnny! Johnny!' on the labels.
