Two different recording sessions that show a difference in the band’s style. The first side is mid-tempo hardcore, while the second side is more on the raw and thrashy side. I prefer side two. The songs have more energy and are all around more interesting. Don’t get me wrong, “Double Crossed” on the first side, with its rumbling bass lines, is a cool song. But the two on the b-side—“Common Characteristics” and “MK Ultra”—rage and have more of a lasting impact.
