The first 7" is early, primal US hardcore punk with those screeching dissonant riffs that we have all come to know and love from the Dead Kennedys and Black Flag. Very "snotty" vocal delivery, and that actually suits the band. Choice cut on this one is definitely "Abolich Government/Silent Majority". Classic, pissed off stuff.
"Weathered Statues" blasts off with a hardcore trialblazer that kinda reminds me of the Circle Jerks but that's as far as the speed thing goes on this here slab o' classic nastiness. The titeltrack is very laid back, sad trippy stuff with clean vox. But hell, it works (well, apart from the last track which almost sounds like a ska-tune). As far as I'm concerned, this is all you need from TSOL, but than again (if you like early US hardcore/punk) YOU NEED THIS!!!
