I know it's old but fuck, they just sent it to me. This compilation has been out for a few months already. The next one (#4) should be out soon. Rodney does it again. Another half punkrock half poprock record. Side A lives up to the other ROQ comps but Side B is the worst B side of all. Sorry but I find it unlistenable.
-Javi Savage (from Big City #4, July/August 1983)

What the hell? Is this the year of the compilation records or what? Jeezus give me a break! This is similar to the other ROTR records, one side's OK and the other sucks. Side A isn't all that bad, but how can you miss with gnarlers like JFA and the Vandals? Other good bands on the disc are No Crisis (see exclusive Paranoia interview), Ill Repute, CH3, Pariah, Catch 22. I wouldn't buy this record, but what the hell we got it for free so...
-Jone (from Paranoia #6, Spring 1983)

Like the earlier volumes, one side is punk and one side is pop. Lots of the bands are new to vinyl, including Kent State, Ill Repute, Catch 22, and Red Scare. The vets are CH3, J.F.A., No Crisis, Pariah, and Rudi from Ireland. Most of Side 1 is anthemic, melodic punk. I won't deal with the flip except to say that the Bangles track is much rawer than their EP.
-Tim Yohannon (from Maximum Rock'n'Roll #4, January/February 1983)

Man, I'd completely forgotten about these two (don't think I ever heard #3), but these were a very important part of me turning Punk at 14. Thanks so much!

I'm trying to unzip this file on a mac using EZ7Z. It says that the file is corrupt. Am I doing something wrong? I'm excited to check out this comp, so any information is appreciated.


MOOKIE said...

can't wait to hear it.

thanks for all the great tunes!

MOOKIE said...

Oops, sorry Chris. I didn't read thru the previous comments to see that it was a .7z file. Most of the music we find is in .rar so I just assumed. My bad.

I'm glad you found a solution.
