Conceived as a stall tactic while Adz feverishly write and record their next studio disc, American Steel , this collects fifteen tracks from various unreleased demos, bonus tracks, compilation albums, split seven-inches and others.
Is it worth it?
Where would punk rock be it if weren't for all the various unreleased demos, bonus tracks, compilation albums, split seven-inches and others? Heck, play fast and furious, record what you can and live with the output! Get the word out!
The album starts off with the Adz theme song, called "Adz," that's a blazing punk rock guitar cruncher to which I could not but help get up and start swinging my elbows wildly! "Get Bent" and a cover of "Roadrunner" were more rockers than slammers, and a good thing too, because I hurt my elbows and put a hole in my wall. There's good live show banter ("..this is for all my friends with autism...") along with lots of raging punk rock (I dug "Tetsuo" and "Flyswatter," especially). Plus there's a good cover of the Kinks' "Till the End of the Day."
