CROM: The Cocaine Wars 1974-1989: CD

May 14, 2001

I guess this is supposed to be some sort of grind "concept" album, but it doesn't work very well as a release, period. All the songs seem half-done and sound like they probably wouldn't have been all too hot anyway, 'cause they all seem to go "blurp...blurp" and end up nowhere. Grind doesn't really bother me too much, provided it's done with some care, but this seems like such a lackluster, half-assed attempt that it's damn hard to even begin being interested.
