PIST, THE: Ideas Are Bulletproof: LP

Glad to see this back in print. The Pist are not to be denied! Seems like a lot of people had a hard time finding this album, at least on the West Coast, when it originally came out. The street punk influence is more prominent on here (and saluted in the song, “Street Punk”), and the songs have slowed down slightly. I always thought the mix on here sounded a little flat. They should have turned the guitars up a bit more, and maybe a little more low end to give the music more punch. But what can you do? Songs like “Energy” with its quick pace and stop-go breaks is a ripper, and you get the classic “Still Pist” on here as well. I would suggest starting with the singles collections, Input Equals Output, then get this.
