v/a LIMITED OPTIONS...
HARDCORE/PUNK. It's extremely obvious that a lot of time was spent on this compilation. First of all, there's a real diverse selection of bands. They've also been arranged so that each band somehow goes with the one before and after and the volume level is consistent throughout. Not easy to pull off considering the mix here: MAN AFRAID, THE STRIKE, MK ULTRA, DILLINGER 4, SWALLOWING SHIT, AND DEADSTOOLPIGEON, among others. Some of the bands are long gone, and some of the songs are previously released, but they've all got lyrics to keep you angry and thinking. This is a benefit and comes with Contrascience Fanzine # 5½. Contains articles on military recruiting, the systematic attack on the working class in the U.S., interviews with the benefit causes & pages by the bands.

v/a MIDWEST THRASH ATTACK
HARDCORE. This is a double 7" compilation from the Midwest. DAMAGE CONTROL, IN DEFENCE, CHOOSE YOUR POISON and STAND OFF. All the bands bring something to the table, however the underlying feel remains the same: raw and in-your-face fast hardcore. STAND OFF is a band that never released anything and this is their welcome and exit to the scene - IN DEFENCE has been on a handful of labels and their releases should be known. CHOOSE YOUR POISON lays down their breed of doom infused hardcore and DAMAGE DEPOSIT is back with some unreleased covers. This is a real close look into the Midwest scene, and expect to be grounded in their roots!
