Nardcore Compilation 12"

i've been on a kick about just buying original records lately. this is not the original comp but i don't care, it still rips! i bought this on my excursion to hits and misses (read here). in that post, sorry i spelt the name wrong. i thought it was just hit not hits. i still make the same mistake. anyway, it was sitting on the shelf next to reagan youth (the remastered one). this was originally released in 1984, but i have the reissue from 2009 i think it is. the cover is a little altered, but no big deal. the thing i don't like is that on the back there is a big cd ad, right in the middle, bizarre. if you read it, it says it includes a cd with some nardcore 7"s on it. decent cd, pretty decent. my copy is on white vinyl. there are 20 songs on this. i downloaded it from another source and it was missing 8 of the songs. so i was surprised how good the other tracks were. i'm not going to go through all the bands cause that will take a while and i'm not up for it. now on to the tracks.
1. ill repute-president 5/5 (fantastic song. it's the reason i bought this comp.)
2. ill repute-sleep walking II 4/5 (great band, my favourite from oxnard.)
3. ill repute-it's not gonna happen to me 5/5 (great song, great vocals.)
4. scared straight-skate to live 5/5 (doesn't sound like scared straight i know but great.)
6. rat pack-tell me how 4/5 (rat pack gives us a metal taste on the a side.)
7. rat pack-w.w. 84 4/5 (good.)
8. habeas corpus-steal you blind 3/5 (could have been tossed and i wouldn't care. but it's short so.)
9. agression-the smell 5/5 (great tracks on here by the band.)
10. agression-calling for you 5/5 (fantastic ender to the a side.)
11. r.k.l.-u.s. steal 5/5 (ooo.)
12. r.k.l.-lies 4/5 (nice tracks by this band.)
13. r.k.l.-no respect 5/5 (cool.)
14. false confession-feline 1/5 (slow and long. also bad.)
16. the rotters-men 0/5 (similar to angry samoans' homosexual. i also hate this track.)
17. dr. know-circle of fear 2/5 (too long and i don't like dr. know in the first place.)
18. a.f.u.-high on the hog 5/5 (back to goodness.)
19. stalag 13-statistic 5/5 (GREAT!!! the drum sound is amazing, followed by amazing vocals. best song on here.)
20. stalag 13-do it right 5/5 (more on the funk side, and who doesn't love funk.)
overall: 8.5/10 strongly recommended
great comp to own, only a few not so good tracks. pick up a copy today! now i'm off to buy some original records (except for that damn rebel truth album that went for $51, the guy got ripped).
