VARIOUS ARTISTS: I Don’t Want to be a Part of Your So Called Punk: CD

Twelve tracks of punk, ska and metal, courtesy of Fork, Freedumb, Vaya con Satan, and others. I know the bands themselves aren’t responsible for it, but the irony of this compilation’s title is that every one of the tracks here sounds like it’s trying very hard to fit within a given pigeonhole, with none really aiming to set a new bar or break out of the box, so you’re left with pretty much more of the same ol’ same ol’.
